Description

Greetings, I’m Florence Nightingale here to answer your questions. Yes, this lady in the front row…? What advice would you give to nurses in leadership positions? Ah, yes- I've devoted quite a lot of thought about this subject. #1- Be generous with praise and cautious with criticism. #2-Approach a non-lethal mistake as an opportunity for improvement, both personally and systemically. In healthcare, with rare exceptions, clinicians only seek to be helpful. Generally, we punish ourselves more than any discipline one could meet out. #3- It is important to have control of ones self; and to exercise leadership without appearing to exercise it. #4-To have a mind given to impartiality is quite important. #5- To seek wisdom and guidance at all turns. That’s all for today, thank you for listening to my tuppence based on your questions.
