Abstract:
Polarity Management: An Essential Skill for Nurse Leaders Working to Create Healthy Practice Environments
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Wesorick, Bonnie
P.I. Institution Name:Clinical Practice Model Resource Center
Nurse leaders are faced with the challenge to create and sustain a healthy, healing integrated practice environment, one that will both draw nurses and retain practitioners to assure quality care. A consortium of over 90 settings across the continent have formed a partnership to collectively create such cultures. This group has uncovered a major and unique understanding of the nature of the work. From this understanding it became very apparent that problem solving skills and good intentions were not enough to be successful with this work. In fact the problem solving strength and mindset was in fact putting the settings at risk. Something was missing. The success of the work was tied to a leadership skill called "Polarity Management." The intentional work to create healthy integrated work places is filled with common polarities. The skill to manage them is fundamental to success. The approach to dilemmas or polarities that are norms within the culture, such as, recruitment and retention, cost and quality, task dominated and professional nursing practice, work demands and staff ratios, hierarchy and partnership, shared decision making and unilateral decision making, etc., are inherent in the work. This session will introduce polarity management, share the top 10 most common dilemmas identified by over 90 clinical settings engaged in this work, and show its impact on action plans and outcomes of managing the polarities. Leaders will leave with a sense of hope and direction.
