Engaging Leadership – a better approach to leading a team?Posted on 23rd May 2018
Pressure on NHS staff has never been greater, stemming from factors including increased workload, major changes to how service provision is organised, greater uncertainty and complexity, and increased interdependence of teams and organisations. Leaders in nursing have a significant role to play in minimising the impact of these factors on staff, including by reducing stress and improving teamwork, innovation and collaboration.
Real World Group CEO, Juliette Alban-Metcalfe’s article in the Nursing Times explains how Engaging Transformational Leadership, provides a strong framework for nursing leaders to rise to these challenges through their day-to-day behaviour.
Research shows that this type of leadership is conducive to good-quality care because it nurtures staff’s confidence, motivation, ability to work with others and willingness to innovate.
