Interview of Health Care Leader
Leaders and managers can often be interchangeable. Although they have many similarities, there are some differences between them. Parker and Hyrkas (2011), stated “nursing management and leadership are primary stakeholders who develop and collaborate the transformation of health care, deliver world class value, and optimize the health of patients and the community” p. 567).

They include autocratic leadership, democratic leadership, laissez-faire leadership, and bureaucratic leadership. The individuals who practice autocratic leadership believe that employees are motivated by external forces. External forces include individuals in positions of power and authority. Autocratic leaders make decisions and use “coercion, punishment, and direction to change followers’ behavior and achieve results” (Sullivan & Decker, 2009, p. 46). Democratic leaders believe individuals have internal drives that motivate them to be successful. This internal drive causes the individual to be active participants in decision-making and task completions. Democratic leaders allow the majority of the group to direct goals and set protocols that help them achieve those goals. Laissez-faire leaders also believe individuals have an internal drive to motivate them to complete tasks. The difference is that the laissez-faire leaders believe individuals do not need to facilitate or direct the employees in completing the assigned tasks. These leaders leave the individuals alone and allow them to make their own decisions on how to complete those assigned tasks. The bureaucratic leader believes individuals are motivated by external forces. This type of leader does not trust their employees to make decisions. These leaders rely on organizational policies and procedures to “identify goals and direct work processes (Sullivan & Decker, 2009, p.46).
