Boosting Morale After A Tough Week

How do you boost morale after a tough work week?  

After a tough week, it’s easy for morale to go down.  

People feel defeated. 

Tough weeks are a part of life.  

We all have them at some point. 

The important thing is bouncing back after them. 

Athletes play games each week. 

Sometimes they win. 

Sometimes they lose, and still go on to win championships. 

They don’t let one bad game determine the entire season. 

As a leader, it’s your responsibility to lift your team up after a tough week. 

To do this, you must first pick yourself up. 

You can’t pick other people up until you pick yourself up.  

You can’t have a pity party. 

You get paid the big bucks for a reason. 

You’ve got to find a way to be inspired.  

Then you’ve got to use that inspiration to inspire your team.  

Remind them of the vision and mission of your organization.  

What are you there to do?  

You’re there to make a difference.  

If you want to survive a tough week, refocus on how you can make a difference.

Why Nursing Leadership Is Important

Everyone needs to understand why leadership in nursing is important.

Let me explain what’s happening right now.

There are 9.7 million healthcare workers on the front lines in healthcare.

It is projected that in the next five years, 6.5 million of those workers will leave the healthcare industry and not come back.

It is also projected that only 2 million people will replace that 6.5 million leaving.

This means that in the next five years, we’ll be in a healthcare crisis.
