Personal Leadership Analysis
Leadership is described as a process of influencing, whether between individuals or between groups, in order to achieve targets, implemented in different fields of work. When there is a person capable of carrying a particular set of ideas to achieved common goals, such person is called a Leader. Thus, leadership becomes important when one notes that the world is now more competitive and volatile, technological changes, international competition, freedom of thought and the changing demographics of the workforce, they are certainly factors that favor this change and that in turn drive the holistic exchange among people, strengthening their working tools and the motivation to perform all activities with excellence.

I have the essential qualities and skills to become an effective leader in the nursing profession.
The hospital environment today is characterized by a shortage of nurses, which is an increasing concern. Young nurses, who enter the market are not interested in nursing, young graduates are slow to start exercising the profession and more experienced nurses demonstrate more quickly from a deep weariness with regard to working conditions, which leads them to reduce their working time, to seek new employment conditions or leave the profession altogether. The tension is caused by heavy loads, low professional status, rotating work schedules and various risks inherent in the nature of the activity certainly affects the health and motivation of nurses.
The low social value given to the nursing profession, which is reflected in particular by the lack of career planning and strategy of continuing education, also contributes to the difficulty of recruitment. Many occupations have a better career opportunity with higher pay, respect, autonomy in decision making, and opportunities to exercise leadership (Daly, 2004). The picture painted is very dark, and it becomes critical for any hospital institution to maximize the satisfaction of nurses and their involvement in the organization to maintain their membership in the hospital and provide care that meets quality requirements, while ensuring patient satisfaction.
