As a student I used to skip over anything that had to do with leadership in the standards of nursing practice. I believed that leadership was about having authority, a fancy title and a big office. Leadership was for those kinds of nurses, not me.
But that’s not true, and I was wrong.
A leader is someone who sees capacity in other people and possibility in ways of doing and being.
Leadership is for people who see the work that needs to be done, and who decide to take a stand – regardless of the outcome – because it’s worth it to try.
People are waiting for us to show up and lead.
Are you in?
