Practice: Occupational Research

A career I have been interested in since I was a little girl is nursing. Most of the women in
my family are in the medical field somehow and I have always looked up to them because of it. I
had originally wanted to go to school or nursing, but I ended up in another direction. Not only do
nurses make good money, but I love helping people, and it is a job that is always going to be
needed. The 2017 median pay or a nurse is $110,930/year or 53.33/hour. The job outlook for
nurses is projected to 31%.
After obtaining a high school diploma or a GED, a person who is interested in becoming
a nurse has a couple educational options. You can choose to become a licensed practical nurse
(LPN) or a registered nurse (RN). An LPN can also enroll in further classes to become an RN if
they choose to do so later on. Nurse training can come from college or hospital education
programs that lead to a diploma, associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree. Diploma and associate’s
degree programs take less time to complete but also offer fewer job opportunities after
graduation. Community colleges and vocational schools both offer two year programs for
diploma and associate programs. You can obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing after a four year
program through colleges and universities (“Nurse Requirements And Career
A career as a nurse can take many directions as you can be anything from a pediatric
nurse, to an emergency room nurse, or a geriatric nurse. All nurses have skills specific to their
specialty. General nursing skills that cross each specialty are technical, interpersonal, and
critical-thinking skills. Personal qualities that benefit you as a nurse include being responsible
and detail-oriented. Skills required for all nurses include assessing your patients’ physical,
mental, and emotional state, diagnosing diseases and injuries, making a recovery plan and
evaluating your patients’ recovery. It is also important to be able to have trust and rapport
between other healthcare professionals, patients and their family. As a nurse you will
be providing education about health conditions and test results and other types of medical
information. As a nurse you have to have good problem solving skills as you will be exposed o a
variety of situations on a daily basis (“What Skills Are Needed To Become A Nurse?”, 2018).
Some affiliated professional organizations are: American Association of the History of
Nursing, The American Association of Nurse Attorneys, American Nurses Association,
Emergency Nurses Association, and International Association of Forensic Nurses.

Your Leadership Style Assessment Results
Your assessment results show that you have the characteristics of these types of leaders:
• Ambassador – your score is 16 points out of 25
• Advocate – your score is 17 out of 25
• People Mover – your score is 18 out of 25
• Truth-Seeker – your score 19 out of 25
• Creative builder – your score is 19 out of 25
• Experienced guide – your score is 22 out of 25
See the sections below for more detail on your natural roles and some suggestions for next steps.
Ambassadors instinctively know how to handle a variety of situations with grace. They tend to be the
people diffusing nasty situations. The ones getting involved in conflicts on behalf of broad
constituencies, as opposed for their own benefit. They are apt to be persistent in a gentle way — to be
persuasive and at the same time respectful.
An Ambassador, for example, might be someone who can introduce a whole host of peopleassessment and development frameworks with the result that employees understand and accept the
new order easily.
Advocates instinctively act as the spokesperson in a group. They tend to be articulate, rational, logical,
and persuasive. They also tend to be relentless (in the positive sense of the word), championing ideas
or strategic positions. Advocates tend to use both linear and non-linear approaches when they argue a
Top managers who are natural Ambassadors may do very well at navigating through rough waters.
But for Advocates, being in rough waters is part of the reason they revel in their work. (Many
Advocates tend to see things in black and white only. Advocates very often need Ambassadors on their
senior management teams — to help them temper their messages and persuade employees to “buy
into” their decisions.)
Think: Talent-spotter, career-builder, motivator, someone with parental, nurturing qualities. People
Movers instinctively take the lead in building teams. They’re also instinctive mentors. They generally
have large contact lists; they are always introducing new people to new ideas and new paths. They’re
also generally mindful of their employees’ lives outside of work; they view performance through the
larger lens of potential.
There is a certain “holiday card joy” that comes with being a People Mover; when people continue to
update you on their progress because they know you’ll care, even if you have nothing in common with
them and are effectively out of touch with them, you know you’re a People Mover.
Think: fairness, good judgment, equalizer, level-headed, process-oriented, scrupulous neutrality,
objectivity is the high standard. This is the only role for which there is a “prerequisite;” Truth-Seekers
are unfailingly competent in their field; their competence is unquestioned.
Truth-Seekers instinctively level the playing field for those in need. They also help people understand
new rules and policies. They act to preserve the integrity of processes. They try to identify the rootcause issues, or pivotal issues. They also step in to ensure the just and fair outcome if the process has
failed to yield the same.
Successful individuals in the Human Resources function are generally natural Truth-Seekers. TruthSeekers also tend to gravitate towards line-manager positions.
These individuals are visionaries and entrepreneurs – they are happiest and most driven at the start of
things. They instinctively: see new opportunities for new products, new companies; spot niche
markets; take ideas and make them real. They’re also often “serial entrepreneurs” over time, even if
they remain in one leadership post.
Creative Builders instinctively understand that building is not necessarily about invention, but about
process of making an invention real. Builders are constantly energized by new ideas, yet they have
the staying power to see them through to fruition.
The issue is rarely simply the idea; builders aren’t “Hey Dave, what’s your latest scheme?” people.
Builders are fascinated with implementation. Real estate developers are often “builders” in this way
(beyond the obvious connection); they feel most rewarded when a project gets underway, or is newly
Builders sometimes get into trouble if they remain in one place for too long. There are case studies,
too numerous to mention, of entrepreneurs whose legacies are negative because they became
enmeshed in the day-to-day operations of the companies they created, and didn’t know when it was
time to leave. Builders can successfully remain in a single leadership position only if they figure out
how to feed their own need for new projects.
Here’s an equation to try on yourself if you identify with the role of builder:
Strength of belief in end result + Ability to tolerate the process = Creative Builder
The term “Experienced Guide” conjures up an image of someone very old and wrinkled, with the
experience that comes with age. That’s not incorrect, but Experienced Guides don’t have to be old, or
necessarily experienced. What they do have to have is an ability to listen, and to put themselves in
others’ shoes. They have a way of helping people think through their own problems; they are natural
therapists. Often, they are seemingly bottomless wells of information on a diverse range of topics.
These are the people who can always be counted on to supply the right quotation or the right
They are not necessarily mediators, yet the experienced guide is often the person who finds him or
herself “in the middle,” with people on both sides of a conflict seeking advice. When a corporate
meeting has been particularly stressful or fraught with conflict, the “post-meeting, closed-door
meeting” often takes place in the Wise One’s office.
Remember the “family lawyer” of old? The person, outside of the family, who knew (and kept) all the
family secrets, and was often sought for advice? The experienced guide role naturally lends itself
today to the position of minister, counselor, trusted advisor.
Renato Tagiuri, emeritus professor at the Harvard Business School, noted that natural “experienced
guides” are often found one level down from the top in organizations. They get their greatest
satisfaction helping others get through the day and helping others see the bigger picture. They
