It is often said that “time is money” and a minute lost can never be recovered (Bass & Bass, 2009). As a leader, it is critical to plan how to manage your time more efficiently within the leadership environment. Time management is, therefore, an essential component of leadership that every leader should be able to integrate within the context of his or her leadership. A leader must be time conscious in the sense that every minute counts. Since a time lost is a wasted time, a leader must account for every minute or second of his leadership so as to be able to lead more effectively (Bass & Bass, 2009). This paper, therefore, focuses on assessing time management and leadership by focusing the various leadership theories that describe how to be an effective leader that is time sensitive. In an organization, time is constant and irreversible, and nothing whatsoever can be alternated for the time within an organization.
  2. In this regard, organizational leaders must be able to come up with effective time management strategies that center on how to manage time more efficiently. It should be noted that leaders have numerous demands on their limited time and time keeps on getting away. Time is beyond manager’s control, but an effective leader can only develop strategies aimed and prioritizing activities so as to manage time in the organization. A leader can become time fanatic by building time management schedule such as time management spreadsheet, color coding tasks, prioritizing activities by creating priority folders and above all by separating paperwork from priority piles (McCartney & Campbell, 2006). However, time management can become a complicated process for leaders that they soon give up on managing their time. TIME MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP 3 Focusing on my time management techniques, I tend to be time conscious in every activity that I do. I appreciate the fact time is a precious resource within an organization and once wasted can never be regained. Although sometimes I tend to have numerous demands in my limited time, I often prioritize tasks within my to-do activity list. I focus on the most important activities on my to-do list before venturing into doing the least productive activities. Assignment: Time management is an essential part of leadershipIt is imperative to state that prioritizing activities is part of effective leadership since as a leader; an individual must be ready and willing to sacrifice some activities to fulfill other activities. It is part of leadership organization to prioritize activities by developing effective to-do list that centers on critical activities to carry out from the to-do list (McCartney & Campbell, 2006). My leadership technique focuses on effective management of time in every activity being undertaken within my leadership context. It imperative for leaders like me to realize that procrastination is a thief of time and therefore a leadership should refrain from procrastination and make realistic time estimates. A leader should not micro-manage time but rather provide an opportunity for other to grow and develop within the limited time assigned. The most useful part of my leadership is time management that centers on planning, priorities, standards, policies, and procedures. Through this, I can establish a personal deadline and that of the organization at the same time ensuring that all my activities have a purpose, period and incorporate only essential tasks that are of value to the organization. One effective leadership theory that best describes my leadership style is behavioral theories that focus on how leaders behave. The way a leader behaves is critical in shaping his or her style within an environment. Leaders should recognize the fact that leadership is all about behavior and how such behavior can shape the actions of their followers (Goetsch & Davis, 2014). In this regard, Kurt Lewin developed a framework based on leadership practices that center on TIME MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP 4 three types of leaders namely autocratic leaders that make decisions without any form of consultation with their team or followers (Goetsch & Davis, 2014). Democratic leadership allows the team to contribute their ideas to make a decision within the organization, and finally, laissezfair focuses on allowing the members to make many the decisions within the organization. This theory, therefore, best describes the ideal character of a leader in regards to time management within the organization. Leadership and management are often used together since there is a correlation between leadership and management. To analyze the relationship between leadership and management, it is important to evaluate whether a
  3. leader must have management skills. Assignment: Time management is an essential part of leadershipIn this case, it should be noted that leadership is about doing the right things while management is all about doing things right (Thomas, 2004). One overarching difference between leadership and management is that leadership is the ability of an individual to influence, motivate and enable other people to contribute towards the realization of goals and objectives of the organization. On the other hand, management is all about the act of directing as well as controlling a group or entity with the primary purpose of coordinating and harmonizing the entity towards the realization of the goals and objectives of the company. Leadership is often people oriented while management is centered on tasks within the organization. Within an organization, leadership is focused on leading people by motivating them to be more efficient while management is focused on managing work (Thomas, 2004). In conclusion, leadership and management are vital concepts that have a lot of relevance within the workplace. As an individual, the concepts that we learnt this week including the idea of leadership and management will help me become more active leader in the organization. The success of any organization is centered on effective leadership and management; in this regard, I TIME MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP 5 will be able to contribute more efficiently towards the success of my organization through integrating the concept of leadership and management that we have learned this week.

Running Head: PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT Personality Assessment in Public Health Leadership Devan Frison Instructor: Daniel Lane South University July 8, 2017 1 PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT 2 According to the Human metric Jung Typology Test the following are my personality test results: Extravert – 44% Intuitive – 59% Feeling – 12% Judging – 62% Healthcare environment requires effective leadership that can foster better health care outcomes among patients. To realize better healthcare outcomes, public health leaders must play a fundamental role in shaping the healthcare environment in a manner that can enhance efficient medical outcome (Vernon, 2014). Healthcare is one of the most important sectors in any given economy since the productivity of any nation is highly dependent on how healthy its population is. In the changing healthcare environment, effective leadership is required of healthcare leaders so as to foster better health care outcomes within communities. It is imperative to note that leaders acquire different leadership traits some of which are necessary for ensuring effective and efficient public health leadership (Vernon, 2014). My leadership assessment in Jung Typology indicates that I possess judging personality in my leadership style. Focusing on the judging personality, this approach of leadership entails organizing and prior planning to achieve the organizational goals and objectives. Individuals with judging personality tend to get their sense of control through taking charge of their environment and making first choices. It is
  4. one of the most important leadership traits that foster effective leadership outcome within any healthcare setting. Leaders are required to be self-disciplined and PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT 3 decisive (Hautala, 2006). Leaders with judging leadership traits are often self-discipline and seek closure in all decisions that they make about the organization. Judging leaders are particular, and when they ask for something, they often mean it and require their followers to cooperate. Judgers approach life in a more structured way than perceivers. In their leadership style, they often need people to cooperate and work towards the realization of the organizational goals and objectives. Within the healthcare setting, the primary goals and objectives of the corporate leaders are to foster efficient health care outcome among the diverse population. Patients expect their organizational leaders to work towards satisfying their health care needs and this is what judgers do within any healthcare setting (Hautala, 2006). From the Jung Typology leadership personality assessment, it is evident that I have moderate preference of extraversion over introversion. Assignment: Time management is an essential part of leadershipIt was also clear that I have distinct preference of intuition over sensing, at the same time, I have slight preference of feeling over thinking and distinct preference of judging over perceiving. Below is an in depth discussion of the four aspects of my personality as revealed from the assessment. Extravert This is the first psychological preference of Jung typology personality types. According to Jung, extraversion and introversion refer to the attitudes people use to direct their energy. An extravert source and directs his or her energy mainly in the external world. Extraverts will tend to be more into associating with people in the outer world and in this case these people will always be outgoing and relate more effectively with groups (Hautala, 2006). These people feel more comfortable working in groups and have a broad range of friends. The assessment revealed that I have 44% extraversion which is a moderate preference of extraversion over introversion. In PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT 4 this case, this personality trait will help a great deal in improving population health as they foster productive relationship necessary for improving healthcare outcome among the population. Intuitive Intuition and sensing are the second criteria on the Jung typology personality assessment, and they represent the techniques by people perceive information. My assessment revealed that I have 59% intuition I tend to believe on information received through assessment and evaluation in making decisions and not direct information from the external world. It is important to undertake a thorough examination of the information received from the external so as make rational and well-informed decisions (Hautala, 2006). Feeling Feeling versus thinking is the third criterion in the Jung typology and represents how an individual processes information. Thinking, in a nutshell, means that a person makes decision through the use of logic and not a mere sense of feeling. On the other hand, the feeling is where by an individual makes decisions based on his or her feelings and emotions. From my assessment, I possess 12% feeling meaning that I rely mostly on logical thinking when making decisions (Hautala, 2006). It is important to think logically in regards to the underlying scenario when making any decision within the organization. Building on feeling may result from making irrational decisions that may impact negatively on the organization. Judging This is the last criterion in Jung typology, and it represents how an individual implements the information that has been processed within the external environment. As noted above, PERSONALITY

ASSESSMENT 5 judging is all about how an individual organizes himself including his life events and sticks to his or her plans for making decisions within the organization (Hautala, 2006). 6 PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT Reference Hautala, T.

There are five major beliefs that propel groups towards conflicts. Individual superiority has a significant role in escalating conflicts within a group. In the event that a person develops a negative sense of superiority towards others, issues will automatically emanate in society (Coser, 1964). Mistreatment of people (injustices) compels victims to resort to retaliatory acts with the intention of seeking justice. Vulnerability is another concrete contribution to occurrence of conflicts in society. Any individual or a group which believes to be living in compromised situations will resort to conflicting deeds in order to attain economic and social stability. Distrust is a psychological point of perceiving other people in a malicious way. Distrust causes conflicts by humiliating, hurting, abusing and cheating others; with the sole purpose of achieving personal material gains at the expense of other community members (Eidelson & Eidelson, 2003). Evidently, the state of being helpless provokes people to engage in conflicting acts in order to achieve desired goals. For example, an individual who has realized that he/she is unable to handle certain task; there are higher chances of engaging in conflicts with other community members. It is a candid observation to appreciate the fact that indeed conflicts occurs at individual, group or organizational level. Change Theories Theory of change refers to specified method of planning, participation and assessment for the sole purpose of attaining change in the social sector. Long term goals are identified and CONFLICT THEORY 3 identification of necessary preconditions is also considered (Brest, 2010). Mapped changes are considered to be outcomes of the suggested pathway of attaining a unique state of stability. The discovery of theory of change is based upon two concrete considerations i.e. differentiating between desired and actual outcomes; and compelling stakeholders to model their desired outcomes before resorting to means of intervention meant to achieve suggested set objectives (Brest, 2010). We all attest to the fact that change is inevitable. You cannot avoid change but individuals are supposed to embrace change in order for success to be realized. There are various theories which explain the logic behind occurrence of change in society. Such theories are Lewin’s change theory, Lippitt change theory and Rogers change theory. Below is a brief discussion of Lewin’s change theory as applied in nursing. Lewin’s Change Theory The father of social psychology (Kurt Lewin) was behind brain child idea of the nursing theory of change. Lewin was able to theorize three models of change stag …Assignment: Time management is an essential part of leadership
