Discussion: Leading a Team
Discussion: Leading a Team
Teams are an integral part of the health care environment. Patient care requires that a group of health care providers work together to provide the highest quality care possible. The group usually consists of people with varying levels of education, authority, and experience. Smriti Chand, in an online article at Management states, “All teams are groups but not all groups are teams. Teams often are difficult to form because it takes time for members to learn how to work together. People in every workplace talk about building the team, working as a team, and my team, but few understand how to create the experience of team work or how to develop an effective team. Belonging to a team, in the broadest sense, is a result of feeling part of something larger than oneself. It has a lot to do with your understanding of the mission or objectives of your organization.”
