Part III 

All nurses are leaders. A leader is anyone who uses interpersonal skills to influence others to accomplish a specific goal.  As with management, leadership may be formal (someone that has a “legitimate authority conferred by the organization” leadership role), or informal (does not have an organizational leadership/management specific title). An example of informal leadership is a staff nurse whose thoughtful ideas influence workflow and whose knowledge and personal skills convince others to follow specific paths to accomplish patient outcomes. 

Multiple theories exist that provide a framework for leadership success in varied situations. Based on a review of the “leadership theory” information, identify the leadership theory that is represented by the below summary definitions and state why this specific theory is applicable for nurse leaders (whether staff RN’s or formal authority leaders).
