From a patient and their family’s perspective, nurses do not have good responsive skills. Although we may be busy, we need to remember that we have other patients to care for and must attend to them quickly to ensure that they are happy and safe. The most important thing is that we must be empathetic to those in our care and communicate professionally as nurses. As
The key responsibilities of a team leader are: Providing structure for the team - This is associated to setting a clear vision to provide purpose, clarify roles and responsibilities, allocate tasks and set objectives. A leader can influence the team to perform their duties by explaining the vision and the importance of their role in the outcome, along with the steps or goals, needed to achieve it. The individuals will be more apt to follow if they can envision their contribution to the bigger picture. Without that perspective the team cannot accomplish its goal. Managing Time- A leader should be able to identify and differentiate between urgent and important issues.
SECTION 1: ESTABLISH TEAM PERFORMANCE PLAN Activity 1 1 Describe what differentiates a group of people from a team. A group can be defined by people who are together but not working together to complete a task. A group of people could be doing the same thing together, but they are observers not the doers. A team is a group of people, random or chosen, who are working together for a common purpose or goal. A team can be a group of people who are working together to accomplish an assigned or general task; 2 Explain why it is important to establish a clear team purpose.
It is the aptitude to establish principles and values as well as supervise a creative environment where everyone is self-motivated towards achieving long-term productive goals. Management The basic objective of management is the progress of people and not the direction of things. The
First it is important to understand who a leader is. At the most basic level, a leader is someone who guides or leads other people. In more detail, a leader is a strong individual who has a vision or a purpose. He or she also has the skills and dedication required to see this vision through, guiding others to believe in this vision and implementing the plan so that the desired result is achieved. The authors of Leading the Way look at seven angles or attitudes that make a successful leader.
2. Explain why it is important to establish a clear team purpose. It is important to establish a clear team purpose, to enable the group to know the reasons behind their assignment and the objectives that are required to be accomplished. And that would lead for to develop policies, procedures and timeframe. 3.
Motivating in Teams “Motivation is the process by which a person’s efforts are energized, directed, and sustained toward attaining a goal” (Robbins, S. P., De Cenzo, D. A., & Coulter, M., 2013). This means that any individual has the capability to be motivated; however, choosing which direction to channel the motivation is where a person can outperform ones expectations. Contemporary theories of motivations all attempt to explain the ways in which a leader can motivate, lead, and direct. Most theories attempt to channel motivation using rewards, specific goal settings, and understanding what an employee is interested in. Using the goal-setting theory leaders can integrate these techniques and apply them to a work team and maximizing the strengths of all members of the group.
An Exemplar: Dorothea Orem’s Self Care Theory Applied to Nursing Practice Brandy Rose NUR502 – B02 Dr. Miller September 22, 2012 Introduction Nursing theory can often be an intimidating concept to novice and experienced nurses. Often nurses are overwhelmed with learning and understanding their practice, evolving practice changes related to evidenced based practice, high acuity patients, and the demands of hospital administration. The thought of applying theoretical concepts related to theory based nursing can seem difficult, challenging, and time consuming. Brenier (2002) compares theory to broccoli, “ as with broccoli, a child may turn up a nose with the first taste, but after experimenting with broccoli and other vegetables, the taste of broccoli becomes the favorite” (p. 384). Personally speaking, I can relate to the comparison of broccoli and nursing theory.
Project 1 1. What things need to consider when allocating work and drawing up workplans? There are a number of factors that Team Leaders need to consider when allocating roles to ensure that the team is effectively meeting its goals. Team Leaders need to ensure that team members: • Understand their roles • Understand the roles of their team mates • Understand how the roles interrelate in the achievement of the team's goals • Have authority to coordinate activities with team mates Understand Their Roles In order to be effective in their assigned roles, team members clearly need to understand their role and the expectations of the role. If the expectations are unclear then the team member may inadvertently underachieve thus jeopardising the successful achievement of the team goals.
Or did you help the patient?” As a nurse you want to help the patient in every situation. This is an ethical issue nurses have to deal with every day. Since every case is different you are not always able to help the patient in the way they want to be helped. Some patients think that you are their friend and you will do anything they ask. But you aren’t able to; you have to do what is required of your job.
