Module 04 Discussion – Five Core Skills of Leadership
There are five core factors of knowledge and skills that nurse’s need to be aware of and practice in order to become effective leaders. These five factors are: (1) being able to motivate your team members to accomplish specific team goals, (2) being able to communicate assertively, (3) manage stress in a positive, effective manner, (4) being able to build a team who are respectful of others and cooperative, and (5) being able to solve problems effectively (Hill & Howlett, 2013).
Choose two of these factors, you feel are most important in leadership, and explain why you feel they are important and give one example of how you would implement each factor as a nurse supervisor. Please use cite outside sources used.
