Leadership is a top characteristic when searching for a new manager or executive in an organization. The main question to be answered is, can this person get the job done and can the individual lead others to get the job done. But why, when an organization has a great leader in place are the results not as successful? This integrative review studied the literature on what relationships exist between healthcare leaders and front-line nurse. Is this a real problem, is it perception and has it even been studied in nursing literature?
Take away notes:
