Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the role of authentic leaders in establishing values-based cultures and healthy work environments for nursing practice within complex health care organizations. Specific emphasis is given to a discussion of how authentic leaders establish trust in order to engage employees and enhance personal and organizational performance outcomes consistent with sustaining healthy work environments for practice. Theoretical Framework: A conceptual framework of authentic leadership, a values-based leadership approach, provides the theoretical direction for this work. Methods:
A review of the literature regarding authentic leadership is presented with emphasis given to a discussion of the characteristics of authentic leaders. Mechanisms by which authentic leaders build trust and engage employees in organizations is discussed. Findings are presented from an emerging program of research in authentic leadership. Results: Authentic leaders grounded in a strong values-based approach possess the capability of creating organizational value that goes beyond bottom line success. A review of the literature proposes that authentic leaders through their relationship-based focus are able to build trust in individuals and the organization. A meta-analysis of the literature confirms that trust in leadership has a significant relationship with individual outcomes inclusive of job performance, organizational citizenship behavior, turnover intention, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment. These positive outcomes are consistent with strategies to create and sustain healthy work environments for nursing practice. Conclusions: At a time of current and future nursing shortages, identifying authentic leadership as a style of leadership capable of establishing employee trust and engaging employees within institutions offers promise for retaining nurses within the profession. Understanding the need for developing authentic leaders with a solid values-based commitment to nursing practice offers significant implications for nursing research, practice, and policy.
