Nursing Leadership - Building Team Credibility

Nurse Leadership Success Strategies

Successful teams have successful leaders, but leadership is not something that is just handed to you overnight.  Stepping into a new nursing leadership role can be a rocky road, especially if you are a new nurse leader, or the new leader of an existing team.  Success starts with a well-defined strategy that includes building trust, opening up communication, and establishing credibility.  If managed correctly, this can be a time of opportunity, development and improvement, but if mismanaged, this time can also lead to resistance and resentment. 

If you are a stepping into a new nursing leadership position, this article from Leadership Caffeine - Get it Right When Starting Up with Your New Team by Art Petty, author and consultant, provides some great strategies to navigate the uncharted territories of leading a new team.  You’ll also discover: The 4 Stages of New-Leader Assimilation, 5 Key Issues at Start-Up, and 4 Common Pitfalls of the Start-Up Leader.
