After reading the assigned resources about leadership types and skills, as well as information about attending to tasks and relationships, you may be starting to develop ideas about how an administrator’s leadership style and philosophy can either facilitate or limit social change efforts. The way in which social work administrators interact with diverse stakeholders such as clients, staff, board members, and community members, contributes to a model of service delivery that emphasizes quality and effectiveness.
Post how a social work administrator’s personal leadership philosophy and style may influence a human services organization’s culture. Also, explain how the organization’s culture might influence a social work administrator’s personal leadership style. Finally, explain how interactions with stakeholders may ultimately impact the organization’s treatment of clients. Be sure to provide specific examples in your explanations.
Support your post with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.

Walden Social Change: Raymond Kayal, PhD Program Transcript RAYMOND KAYAL SR: Amid a cloud of despair, the homeless population is on the rise. DR. PAUL AHR: We have consistently reminded our employees that this is not an agency. This is a ministry. RAYMOND KAYAL SR: Dr. Paul Ahr, president and chief executive officer of the Camillus House, a faith-based nonprofit organization that serves the homeless and poor. DR. PAUL AHR: That undeniable optimism that if we just do the right thing by people who have either wronged or been wronged, that we can turn that all around. RAYMOND KAYAL SR: As the homeless population continues to grow, scenes like this are becoming all too familiar, and the call for change is getting louder. DEIRISH MOSS: I think every community is judged by not just the towering skyscrapers and the beauty of the city, but it’s also judged by how that particular city treats the least of its people. RAYMOND KAYAL SR: Thanks to Walden University, the vision for change among the most challenging circumstances is stronger than ever, and dignity and respect are given to those who might not otherwise have a second chance. FEMALE SPEAKER: If it wasn’t for them, I don’t think I would be here. RAYMOND KAYAL SR: As a board member of a nonprofit organization that serves the homeless, I am now able to promote Walden’s belief that every individual has the capacity to make a difference in someone else’s life, even those never imagined. Just ask Mark, who was once homeless and destitute himself. MARK: When you fall asleep out in the street, you never know what’s surrounding you. If you’re by yourself, anybody could come up to you and do anything they want to you. So you just have to pray, and hopefully you wake up the next morning. RAYMOND KAYAL SR: As I near the final step in my doctoral program, the tools I’ve learned at Walden University are immeasurable. Through the rigors of research and in the many writing requirements, I am now able to apply added value to social service.
