Does anyone have an example of how they do this in their department?  I’ve been asked to do it for my mental health unit and I have no idea what they are looking for and how to get buy in from the staff.  Any information would be appreciated!  Thanks:)

Yay, team building activities said no nurse ever.

Sorry, not helpful I know but I also know how disappointing it is to put a huge amount of effort into these kind of things only to be met with eye-rolls. Better to assess if any of the staff is even interested in such a thing before spending too much time on it.

I know... I was pretty much “voluntold” for it by management.  I already know no one is interested but they want each charge nurse to do it anyway.  Sigh.

If it is something you have to do, ask the staff what they would want to do.

This kind of nonsense is management's idea of a cheap, patronizing fix for impossible demands with inadequate staffing. They must teach the little children how to get along, with less, while they attend meetings trying to cook up more ridiculous schemes. 😏

What, trust falls aren’t a solution for issues?  🙄

You will need to start there. What is their vision? What do they want to see you doing?

I really like this suggestion. I think a lot of times leaders do not think they need to ask staff, but having input from the staff will increase the chances of success. A leader asking staff there opinion may even foster some camaraderie among the team of nurses.

I recently wrote a paper about "Twenty-First Century Thinking About Leadership and Management" and attended a satellite location for the Global Leadership Summit 2019. ErinLeighRN I would be glad to share that paper with you if you think it would be helpful.
