Access the “Allied Health Community” media. Read the Transitional Care Scenario for this course and complete the following assignment:

Put yourself in Kaila’s shoes. As a new CEO of an organization, you have recognized that designation of power has been an issue in the past. As a result, this is creating obstacles for you and your vision. Create a plan of action in an essay format of 300 to 500 words that you would use to regain control of the organization and employees, while still moving forward with a specific vision. In the plan, include:

How will you differentiate the daily duties between your roles as a manager and a leader? Provide clear separation of duties.
What are the sources of power within the organization and how does it determine the organizational structure?
Discuss how you will address the management issues present with the existing staff as well as the CFO and CIO.
Discuss a leadership style you will use to move the organization into a plan that will implement a shared network.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
