Building teams
RT89.B868 1995

Because the work of nursing is seldom achieved by only one person, the nurse manager's ability to build effective teams is crucial to achieving the goals of the organization. Getting people to commit to a common goal and to work toward achieving that goal in a productive, efficient, and caring way is one of the major contributions a manager or leader can make. Working as a team creates an atmosphere of expectation within the workplace that can inspire each staff member to contribute his or her best efforts to each task. This video focuses on key team building strategies such as communicating clearly, creating a sense of mission and solidarity, addressing interpersonal conflicts, role modeling, expressing appreciation, and providing feedback. Clips of interviews with nurse managers, scenarios, narrative, and graphics are used to present key concepts such as strategies the nurse manager can use to influence the development of an effective, committed team.

However, almost all change affects the individual healthcare professional. To help ensure that change realizes its fullest potential, nurse leaders and managers must serve as change agents and help their staff to accept and adjust to necessary change.
