Iarrived at Woodhall Hospital on March 31 at around 9:00 am, and I metmy preceptor by the name Dr. D. The doctor prepared the day`sschedule where one of the plans entailed visiting the Diana Jonessenior center. At around 10:00 am, we left Woodhall Hospital for thesenior center where the activities involved assessing the prevalenceof depression among older adults. Dr. D guided me on the assessmentof depression in twenty older people in the center. The majorsignificance of the evaluation was to find out whether the seniorswere qualified for a musical program that will assist them ineradicating depression. The observable instances of depression rangedfrom mild to moderate. For an individual to qualify for the programthey had to have experiences of mild depression with some types ofchronic infections to severe instances with or without a chronicdisease. Once an individual qualified for the program, an interviewwas given, and the person would select the sort of music they wouldlove to listen. Progressively we went back to Woodhall where Iobserved Dr. D record the data we had collected from the center intoa computer (Marquis and Houston, 2015).
Dr.D used a transformational leadership style as she executed all herduties throughout the day. Transformational change is a type ofleadership style where a leader incorporates assistance strategieswith the aim of identifying the required change, formulating a visionthat directs the change through motivation and the progress of thechange is attached to the commitments of the members of the group(Lalonde and McGillis Hall, 2017). For instance, Dr. D inspired andgave morale to her co-workers, and she acted as a role model to them.She involved a variety of mechanisms to ensure that her fellow nursesunderstood and acquired a sense of identity and made sure that theyparticipated fully in the project (Marquis and Houston, 2015). Dr. Drecognized the distinct individual differences among her colleagues,and she assigned them duties in agreement with their abilities thatenhanced their performance. The Preceptorship concluded at 5:00 pmand I had gathered enough experience on transformational leadershiprequired nursing.
