Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Some of the best nurse leaders in an organization may be those who are managing the middle (mid-management level) or between the spaces. Leading in these spaces is where the organization gets connected and where influence and real work can occur. Those in the middle integrate the organization and diffuse and integrate change. Those who manage in these spaces cultivate a powerbase of influence as they are able to collect peers and colleagues to whom they can connect, as well as gain mastery over systems by seeing what others cannot due to departmental barriers (or silos) that exist. Change agents, such as project managers or nurse in other non-traditional roles, are effective and efficient if allowed the autonomy to implement and move change through an organization. These nurse leaders have developed and maintain the relationships to be effective. Not only do these leaders have effective relationships across the organization, they also become masters at managing up, or in other words meeting the expectations of executive leadership simply by being receptive to instruction and asking the question; what is the executive's vision? Those in the middle gain a mastery of influencing all levels of the organization by keeping everyone in the loop. This presentation will discuss how leaders in the "middle" can implement effective organizational decisions and change, overcome perceived barriers, as well as strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration.
