The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has a strong stance on nurses and leadership. They believe that nurses are a vital component to health care system and nurses in leadership roles can have a positive impact on such. Nurses are in all sorts of roles within the health care systems ranging from a staff nurse, nurse managers, to advance practice, all the way to congress (Finkelman & Kenner, 2013). In addition, they even serve in the boardroom within some health care organizations. Leadership doesn’t necessarily mean a nurse in a manager position, but a nurse who has an influence on staff. (Finkelman, et al, 2013). The importance to having all health care members working together in leadership roles is imperative to positive changes within the health care setting. Nurses can give an insight on matters that only a nurse can, and this is an important viewpoint that needs to be included when
Leadership has many definitions. Chin, Desormeaux, and Sawyer (2016) define leadership as a relationship between followers and a leader with the intent to promote change through a mutual vision. Therefore, leaders are active influences in the outcome of organizations, through their decision-making, strategies, and influence on followers (Dinh et al., 2014). Additionally, in the nursing context, it has been documented that a leader 's style plays a factor in patient outcomes (Fischer, 2016). Indeed, in an ever-changing, complex health care environment, nursing leadership has become a crucial factor in managing challenges and maintaining patient safety (Fischer, 2016). To accommodate for these challenges, the Canadian Nurses Association [CNA]
It is evident that health care delivery services have evolved tremendously over the years. From the difficult state of NHS in 1948 all the way to the road to recovery of health care system today.

The purpose of this paper will be to compare and contrast Lippitt’s and Kotter change theories as well as provide similarities and differences amongst the two. Change is vital in the medical field and especially in nursing, relating to implementation of these changes. The need for effective and efficient communication and appropriate leadership allows for easier implementation and interventions to occur. Change in nursing needs to be purposeful, have direction and have the capability to achieve desired goals. (Kotter 2008) The effort needed to apply these changes comes with great collaboration among the healthcare team. Collaboration includes frequents meetings to establish goals, review interventions, discuss evidence based practices, or suggest changes and alternative methods to benefit those receiving the care of the current nursing practice.
In developing this paper on leadership, I examined what was most important to me as a leader. As I reflected on my leadership philosophy, I thought about my experiences and the principals that I have learned through my own self-discovery and the observation of other leaders that I have had throughout my life. My leadership philosophy paper will focus on what leadership is to me, core values, and knowledge of others.
The neurocritical care intensive care unit (NICU) team has certainly undergone much change and transformation since the first neurocritical care physician and nurse practitioner (NP) took over the team and seven bed unit in 1999. Prior to this initial ‘team’ the NICU was managed by the neurosurgery attending and residents in between surgeries.

A team also generally is known as a group of people with different skills and different tasks, who works together on a common project, services, or goal. Then, the important thing in teamwork is ‘collaboration’, which is the act of working effectively with others to achieve a common goal. Collaboration acts as the lifeblood in the team, even the team is not large enough, but the collaboration is required.
Any organization recognizes the significance of leadership and its crucial role in achieving their goals and success. In healthcare organizations, the complexity of the system and the difference in defining its success goals are reshaping the practice of leadership and its standards. According to House et al. (2002, p.5) a leader is able to influence, motivate, and enable others to contribute to the success of the organization or task. Healthcare and business settings are different in terms of goals and system contexts. Healthcare organizations’ goals includes provide quality, value priced, safe health care services and ultimately, improve health outcomes. In addition to this primary goal, healthcare organizations also seek financial stability, community value, ethics and employee engagement.
(2008). I would like to challenges Chief Nurse Executives (CNEs) to lead the journey and highlights how patients, their families, and health care organizations would benefit immeasurably if CNEs stepped forward and accepted this leadership role, then and only then can the best practice changes begin to improve what we as nurses already know. The processes of leading are intended to enable more people to develop into leaders and more people to share the roles of leading, to enhance the quality and safety of patient care (Stone P. Hughes R, Dailey M.
Leadership has been defined as moving a group of persons toward a common goal. Leader establish a direction and influence others to follow that direction; they motivate people toward a share goal (Curtis, E. A., de Vries, J. and Sheerin, 2011).

Distributed leadership is one form of leadership. It highlights leadership as an emergent property of a group networking of interacting individuals. The concept of distributed leadership has swept through the theory and practice of educational leadership. It has become the theory of choice for many (Lumby, 2013).
