Discussion Prompt #3.2 Identify a powerful public figure you admire. What key factors contribute to this person?s powerful image? Think about a powerful nurse you have met. Identify this person?s key image factors.

COLLAPSE
Discussion Prompt #3.1
During my clinical placement in a residential care unit, I experienced a conflict with my nurse buddy, with whom we did not have a good working relationship. The nurse was not supportive of students and rude when asked questions. Moreover, she was abusive in terms of delegating her duties to student nurses. On several occasions, she refused to answer my questions because of not following her commands, which I felt was unfair and oppressive. I applied the accommodating strategy to diffuse the conflict in this situation. Since I was only under the nurse buddy for a short duration because of the rotation in different units, I decided to prevent the issue from escalating or taking a different course because it would probably make things worse or take a lot of time to address. According to Labrague and McEnroe?Petitte (2017), student nurses often resort to the accommodating strategy as the preferred way of managing interpersonal conflicts with other preceptor nurses.
Reflecting on how I decided to resolve the conflict, I would have done it differently. In a diverse workplace setting, conflicts often occur because of interpersonal differences that may cause misunderstanding and a lack of effective communication. I have realized that I did not demonstrate clinical leadership in this situation because I compromised my values and beliefs on interpersonal relationships (Labrague & McEnroe?Petitte, 2017). I would apply critical thinking to assess the situation by thinking of other student nurses who have experienced the same and those likely to land in the same situation. I would explore the collaboration strategy to engage the nurse buddy and share the impacts of her behaviors on student nurses. Demonstrating clinical leadership skills helps bring change and improve the working conditions for practitioners and patient care outcomes (Stanley et al., 2017).

Discussion Prompt #3.2
The powerful public figure I admire is Mitchell Obama, who is a former first lady. Several factors contribute to Mitchell?s powerful image. She has a high level of self-confidence, which is visible in her walking style, body posture, and body language. Besides, Mitchell?s grooming, speech, and self-image are other areas in which she gains a powerful public image that makes people admire her.
A powerful nurse I have met within the clinical setting portrays specific elements of a leader. The key image factors from which she builds a powerful image include self-image, body language, and good manners, which inspire and motivate those who interact with her. In the case of Mitchell Obama and the powerful nurse, the two individuals get driven by self-confidence, which is the foundation of developing a powerful image (Marquis & Huston, 2017).
A nurse working in wrinkled scrubs with haphazardly pulled back hair into ponytails and fails to make eye contact with people sends a powerless image. Such nurses give the impression of a lack of confidence, and they do not care about their self-image. According to Yoder-Wise et al. (2019), the impression one makes on other people influences how the person gets perceived. This nurse does not display factors that contribute to building a powerful public image. For instance, building one?s powerful image depends on developing one?s image under the concept of power, being well-dressed and groomed, maintaining good posture, demonstrating good manners, and speech confidence (Yoder-Wise et al., 2019). Those who do not develop their appearance, behaviors, and public conduct around these highlighted factors will have a powerless public image.
