Nursing Leadership Advocacy
Leadership is an essential element that required in attaining quality underlying organizational desired objectives and goals. When leadership fails to deliver the best results, nursing organizations are more likely to produce substandard results. As a nursing leader, effective communication is essential that can be used to advocate positive changes. Communicating to team members about undergoing organizational changes is relevant because it helps create a broader awareness (Krepia & Prezerakos, 2018). When employees have an awareness of what is happening, they are able to cooperate because they know what is expected from them. Besides, problem-solving skills are one of the essential skills components for advocating positive change in healthcare organizations. Problem-solving skills enable individuals in the organization to come up with appropriate solutions based on critical thinking. For instance, when adopting various changes, medical practitioners face challenges that need them to come up with appropriate decisions based on logical thinking. Typically, problem-solving skills create positive changes in the healthcare workplace because it empowers collaboration and cohesion among team members. Fundamentally, effective communication and empowering problem-solving skills in an organization play an integral role in advocating positive changes.
Developing positive changes in an organization depends on the quality of leadership employed when embracing specific changes. For example, when an organization aligns with leadership, adopting positive changes will be easier. Therefore, developing practical, tailored leadership qualities subsequently helps in creating positive changes in the workplace. Influential motivation and self-motivation are leadership skills that play an integral role in empowering positive changes; leaders equip employees with motivation and influence them to follow specific directions of achieving desired goals (Shen & Pierce, 2018). Typically, quality leaders empower self-motivation to employees towards embracing positive changes. Importantly, designing appropriate leadership qualities subsequently helps in creating positive changes in healthcare organizations.
The influence of leadership can be far-reaching in practice and improving patient outcomes even when not in a formal role. Describe advocacy strategies that you can use as a leader to create positive change in your current workplace. In response to peers, describe a time when you provided leadership and the outcome.
