Communication

work_boss-dictator.jpg“If we could solve the problems inherent in communications, we could indeed solve the most of the problems not only of the organization but the world

I believe this is absolutelly true, succesfully of management functions of planning,organizing, staffing, directing and controlling as well decissions making by managers, depends on efective communication.

Communication is very essential, when the manager communicate, four things may be accomplished:
1. Information is transmitted
2. Someone is motivated
3. Something is controlled
4. Emotional feelings are expressed

Manager can affect motivation by informing others about rewards based on performance, by providing information that build commitment to HSO/HSs and their objectives and by helping employee understand and full fill their personal need.

Communication can serve the purpose of motivating someone to work harder or perform more efficiently, when employees are praised for their efforts, employees will continue to put forth effort, Consistent and positive communication can affect the morale, Motivation and performance affect level of the work place in general.

A good communication is hallmark to overcome these issues and to keep a healthy work environment. The essence of leaderhip is ability to influence others, that’s why comunication become more important for leader/manager as a tools to distribute fairly and clearly all tasks and authorities among employee also appraise all the accomplishments and give good rewards.

Oral Health in Alaska

Alaska is one of the largest state in the United States of America, about 2.3 times the size of Texas and about one-fifth the size of the Lower 48 states. Alaska has about 640,000 residents occupying 570,374 square miles, or 365,039,104 acres of land. alaska.jpgAs the youngest state, Alaska developed so many programs, as well in the Oral Health field, especially because Alaska is so wide with the variety population and spread in the whole Alaska bush, this program become very challenging. Historically a number of studies documented the low decay rates in Alaskan Native population. The traditional diet of natives in almost Alaska was rich in protein and fats and very low in sugars or other fermentable carbohydrates. The change of diets in native population also high rates soda consumption, with limited access to drinking water with fluoridation completing with limited access to dental provider in the rural Alaska are factor contributing to high rates of dental decay in Alaska.

Oral Health

Oral health is fundamental to systemic health, wellbeing and quality of life. Mouth is the first gate through the body, a healthy mouth enables people to eat, speak, breath and socialize without any embarrassment. Poor oral health will impact these abilities and also affecting the systemic health.

The prevalence and recurrences of these impacts constitutes silent epidemic. The interaction between oral infection and systemic health was first described in Ancient Egypt and the concept of focal infection dates back more than a hundred years. Knowledge about the link between oral disease and systemic diseases are growing rapidly.

Increasing evidence is available from many investigators to indicate the Oral infection (including periodontitis, caries) as a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases (arthrosclerosis, bacterial endocarditic), diabetes mellitus, low birth weight infants and pulmonary diseases, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, renal disease and off course oral cancer.

Both epidemiologists and researchers in oral microbiology have contributed significantly to the new paradigm of periodontal disease. Although additional studies are needed to determine the mechanisms by which such associations exist; available research clearly demonstrates that oral diseases and conditions are not only markers for underlying health problems, but also important determinants influencing the development and management of adverse chronic health conditions.

Leadership

Leadership is very important to the overall success of organization. The leadership must be effective within the organization and with external stakeholders. The five components of emotional intelligence are very applicable and important to the leader. These include self awareness, self regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill.

The essence of leadership is the ability to influence others. To have influence, however, one must have power. Power is the potential to exert influence, the obstacles will need to be overcome with the use of influence and persuasion which will hopefully lead to cooperation. This cooperative relationship will pave the way strengthening organization financial and political situation.

Manager Function

Management is defined as the process, composed of interrelated social and technical functions and activities, occurring in a formal organizational setting for the purpose of accomplishing predetermined objectives through the use of human and other resources.

One of the functions of a manager in this discussion is the “directing function”. This is categorized as a social-behavioral function in that it involves effective leading, motivating and communicating skills.

A manager must be able to lead those s/he is directing to accomplish the objectives of the group. People follow those in whom they respect, trust and by whom they are inspired/motivated. So it follows that a manager will not be effective in leading people to do the work if they cannot inspire trust and motivate effectively. And all of this is contingent on effective communication skills…both internally with those a manager must direct and externally with other department and high level management.
