Question Description

I'm working on a literature discussion question and need an explanation to help me learn.

Discuss how you would apply the contingency theories as they relate to the healthcare work environment. How would you use these to assess the appropriate style of leadership and the implications for employee motivation, satisfaction, and productivity?

In developing your initial response, be sure to draw from, explore, and cite credible reference materials. In responding to your classmates’ posts, you are encouraged to examine their opinions, offering supporting and/or opposing views.

You are required to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question and/or your instructor’s response to your posting. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.

(contingency theoryThese theories posit that successful leaders must be able to predict how, when, where, and why things happen. Prediction allows the leader to enhance the opportunities and diminish the threats that constantly surface in healthcare settings. A definition of contingency is an event that may occur, but is not likely or intended to occur, or a possibility for which one must be prepared. As such, preparing for contingencies is about possessing the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to respond to a changing situation (Borkowski, 2016).
