In today’s ever changing healthcare environment, leaders change as frequently as the nursing processes change. Often times, nurse managers are selected into the role because they are ‘experienced’ nurses, not because they have demonstrated specific leadership abilities. More often than not, leaders are selected to fill a need- and with the nursing shortage, any experienced nurse will do. With this model, nurses are more likely to fail as leaders than succeed; senior nurse managers function by ‘winging it’ in order to survive. The absence of official training and coaching creates a calamity for nursing, and healthcare at large. Over time, organizations may experience devastating effects of hosting unprepared leaders. Impact can be seen in: reputation, customer satisfaction, staff satisfaction, and financial stability. Investing in leader development is a proactive approach to organizational success and sustainability.
