September 21, 2017
I am in the process of prepping for an interview on Monday.
I've filled out the starter pack and returned it to the hospital concerned, and whilst doing it, noticed the usual forms on privacy and professional behaviour.
The words that struck me, though, were the corporate values.
They weren't in the pack per se.
They were hidden under the logo on the very first page.
Compassion, Leadership, Excellence, Accountability, Respect.
It is reasonable, I guess, for them to expect a mention in the interview.
What jumps out at me is that on first glance they are just a bunch of the usual word associations derived from the usual desired character strengths and personal qualities.
Then it hits me that these are more than just abstract words.
These words reflect qualities, diamonds that shine in all of us with differing degrees of clarity.
Compassion, Excellence, Accountability, Respect.
As nurses, we can all relate to where we are on a continuum with these.
The one that stands out to me is 'Leadership'.
I rush to re-read my work on High Performance Teams and Communities of Practice.
Yup. It is a perfect fit!
(Thanks to Jay Hays and Wendi!)
The pilgrimage is to escalate these ideas from mere words to implicit behaviours.
The vision is the desired future state.
The thunderbolt is that the most important person on the team is not the person with the most seniority nor the most experience;
It is the person with the most potential!
Doing well, well, It is easy to perform when everything runs smoothly.
The unique capacity builder lies in seeking effectiveness in breakdowns leading to improved responsiveness to dire situations and improved antifragility.
Each step is an accomplishment.
Celebrate the small wins.
And rather than talking about heirarchy, let's talk about
Clear Roles and Responsibilities (Accountability)
Clear Skills and Knowledge (Competency)
These are deliberate cognitive/behavioural expressions of the 'Scopes of Practice' and 'National Standards' as inscribed in the NSQHSS and ACORN Standards.
To develop the High Performing Team, you can't rely on the miracle to walk through your door and solve all your problems.
It takes a specific sort of engagement and lots of patience and hard work:
'Mutual Support and Coaching to Grow Capacity'.
That's where I fit in, but only if you believe in the vision.
Can I get Professional Development points for reading my own website?
That's one hour of CPD!
