Introduction
For efficient management in any kind of organization, a leader plays an important
role. The leader of an organization drives people to work towards betterment on an
organization, accept and adapt to changes and align their objectives with organizational
objectives. Hence, a good manager should necessarily possess sound leadership qualities. A
manager might not be a leader, but it is not necessary that the leader has to be a manager.
Any member of staff might possess leadership tactics and lead other members towards the
change. Effective leadership can help in adapting to innovations and make a healthy business
environment to work in (Greening, 2019).
There are various theories existent on the style of leadership and a leader should adapt
to an appropriate leadership style as per the demand of a situation. Using relevant leadership
styles as per the demand of a situation can prove to be a crucial success factor for any
organization. Using an appropriate leadership style makes the leader influential and people’s
trust with him does not get vanished (Khan, Khan, & Qureshi, 2015).
In this paper, we will discuss the importance of leadership in the nursing department and use

set, having a connected leadership, practicing self-discipline, and leading with heart and not

their hearts. (Covelli & Mason, 2017).
Servant leadership
The concept of servant leadership was introduced by Robert k Green leaf in an essay
published in 1970 named The Servant as a Leader. Under this style of leadership, a person
has a desire to serve. In servant leadership the personal egos and monetary benefits become
side-lined. A servant leader enables and empowers others for their best. In the current
constantly changing business environment requires a servant leadership style to ensure that
the leader remains dedicated and committed to the organization in all the circumstances
(Ingram, 2016). Servant leadership style is vital to have, and effective teamwork did and
make employees motivated in all the circumstances a leader may face. The ethical
consideration is placed over the monetary consideration. Hence the servant leadership style
promoted loyalty and enthusiasm in an organization (Kantharia, 2012).
Leadership in Healthcare organization
Leadership is an important aspect as a leader has the power to impact the value,
beliefs, and attitudes of others in an organization. A leader becomes a role model for every
employee and they easily accept the innovations and work towards its success if the leader
becomes successful in demonstrating its benefits to them. They give direction to other people
of the organization and they show sincerity towards him (Sawai, 2013). Thus, leadership
