I'm intrigued by the study of bullying in nursing. It's so pervasive, virtually every nurse has experienced or witnessed it. I believe what the author John Maxwell says about leadership, "Everything rises and falls on leadership". So what I'm wondering, what does management/leadership do to encourage or, hopefully, discourage workplace bullying? I myself have noticed periods of severe aggression, and periods of peacefullness, all in the same organization, but have not been able to pinpoint exactly what was making the difference. :typingDon't worry, I'm not a student, so this is not someone trolling for help with homework. I'm just a curious philosopher and would like to hear the thoughts of peers.
