Abstract

INTRODUCTION: How does one know that they are a leader? What tells us that we are ready to be in a managerial or leadership position? What are the qualities that make a good leader? These questions and perspectives will be explored and shared.

PURPOSE: To explore whether it is possible for professionals in academia to attain leadership positions without having viable mentors or being a mentor themselves.

METHODOLOGY: Exploration of innovative/unique leadership and mentorship models and perspectives.

RESULTS: Different expert viewpoints will be explored and unique perspectives shared on whether leadership roles can be achieved amongst healthcare faculty.

CONCLUSIONS: Leadership has been described as a long-term, value-based process that encourages individuals to be initiators that seek to achieve a common purpose in meeting mutually established objectives. (Vecchiotti, 2011) In looking at the literature, becoming effective leaders are dependent, in part, on two large concepts mentorship and skills/qualities. L. Rose Hollister, a consultant at an organizational development consulting firm states “to be successful in any field, aspiring leaders require role models and guidance”. (Hollister, 2001) Additionally, leaders need to possess certain qualities that allow them to be effective on a global scale within their organizations and on a smaller scale on tasks at hand.
