Leader-rationale: a leader doesnt have formal power and authority but influences the success of a unit by being an excellent role model and by guiding, encouraging, and facilitating professional growth and development. a managers formal power and authority within the organization are detailed in her job description. an autocrat isnt interested in guiding or encouraging staff or in being an effective role model. a manager derives her authority by virtue of her position within an organization.client needs category: safe, effective care environmentclient needs subcategory: management of carecognitive level: applicationreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 120.
