ARTICLE: PDF OnlyManagement by Enlightened Self-Interest Technique versus KindnessCampbell, Carol A. DBA, RRAAuthor Information Associate Professor Department of Health Information Management School of Allied Health Sciences Medical College of Georgia Augusta, Georgia Health Care Supervisor: December 1997 - Volume 16 - Issue 2 - p 48-57 Buy Abstract The day of the pat answer is past. The day of the quick fix is over. Today we are looking beyond the quarterly report into the next century. We now speak of winning combinations, enduring values, and lasting corporate structures. This article examines the application of “enlightened self-interest” to the leadership functions in the highly competitive, hyperturbulent health care industry. Empirical evidence is offered that demonstrates that prosocial leadership behavior enhances the willingness of workers to sustain not only a high level of quality work performance but also an advanced degree of citizenship behavior in the workplace. © Williams & Wilkins 1997.
