Revitalizing Your Health Care Teams Through Action-Based Leadership
 
The clinical workforce is exhausted and straining to hold on after more than a year of trauma from the pandemic and other ongoing workplace stressors. Due to the current situation, approximately one out of every five clinicians is considering leaving the field. However, health care leaders can be proactive in supporting clinical teams and ensuring their long-term sustainability.

As the pandemic’s effects begin to materialize we are seeing more and more that the healthcare industry is suffering from collective trauma. You can help health care teams heal from trauma and start to view adversity as an opportunity for personal and organizational growth with these three approaches to helping your team rebound.

  • Reflect - Too often, we fall into the pattern of reacting to crisis after crisis without pausing to contemplate our experiences. Reflecting on negative experiences can lead to increased self-awareness, the discovery of new possibilities, better interpersonal relationships, a greater appreciation for life and inner growth. Experts agree that sharing stories of trauma can be empowering and leads to the formation of peer-support relationships. 
  • Celebrate Wins - While acknowledging loss is appropriate and part of the healing process, we must be careful not to focus solely on the negative. Seeing progress, no matter how small, can energize and encourage people to keep going. So, I encourage leaders to seek out wins and share them widely.
  • Visioning - Many organizations are experiencing a lack of communication, with people still waiting to hear a vision and detailed plan for moving past the pandemic. You can be proactive in sharing the specific approaches for how the organization plans to move forward, including each team member's role in this strategy.

While it may feel like we are still in the thick of it, as leaders, it is important to provide healing and hope for our healthcare heroes.
