"The public health workforce is diminishing over time (there were 50,000 fewer public health workers in 2000 than in 1980). This troubling epidemic force public health workers to do more for more people with fewer resources. This challenge is compounded by the fact that 23% of the current workforce - almost 110,000 workers - are eligible to retire by 2012" (ASPH, 2010). There are several factors that hinder the public health workforce from recruiting, retaining and training adequate staff such as; ? Assessing an adequate supply of public health workers in relation to the demand for them-the need for public health care workers outweigh the number of workers that can provide health care services. From an observant perspective hospitals are understaffed resulting in nurses, physicians and administrative support staff workers to be overworked thus causing the quality of care provided to patients to decline. Hospitals in the United States, for example, are aggressively searching for workers that will alleviate their insufficient workforce. For example, University Medical Center (UMC) in Las Vegas, Nevada, is deemed as the worst hospital in the state due to their inadequate staff, inability to maintain Total Quality Management (TQM), inefficient service with incompetent staff members.

The company I selected was Microsoft. The current CEO of Microsoft Corporation is Steve Ballmer. He has been with the company since 1980, in 1998 he became the president of the company; as a result of his work performance he became the CEO in 2000 (Balmer, 2010). Steve Ballmer has an impressive track record where leadership is concerned. As I continue to research the companies he has been affiliated with, one can safely assume that his leadership practices include such characteristics as; ? Commitment-since 1980, Steve Ballmer has been committed to adjusting to an increasingly changing marketplace by listening to the needs of the consumers and applying their needs to a plethora of software programs. ? Charisma-a charismatic leader is one that can motivate employees and stimulate the marketplace through innovation and creative concepts. ? Transformational-"transformational leaders are energetic, enthusiastic and passionate" (Cherry, 2010) about an organizations vision. Steve Ballmer displays this type of leadership quality in which case he has the ability to completely transform the organization into a high-performance, high-quality leader in the technological industry.
