A healthier approach to nurse leadership
Our guests for this episode are pushing healthcare leaders to shed their old ideas about leadership and develop a new, healthier and more collaborative approach to managing teams and facilitating change. Dr. Kathy Scott and Bridget Sarikas are the founders of L3 Fusion, a boutique consulting firm whose approach is informed by their dual clinical and business expertise. They are also the co-authors of the new book “Stupid Gone Viral,” which proposes a novel approach to leadership that is centered on science, experimentation and humor.
Bridget, Kathy and Dr. Nurse Dan talk about the importance of prioritizing one’s own physical, mental and spiritual well-being before attempting to lead, why top-down leadership needs to end, and strategies for developing trust and communication within your organization. They talk about their concepts of “grit and grace” in leadership, as well as their preference for “kindness before rightness” in communication.
Kathy is a former bedside nurse who has served in a variety of C-level positions within healthcare organizations, and is a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives. Bridget is an expert in process improvement, financial planning and analysis, investor relations and communication, and has served in executive roles at organizations like Southcoast Health and Howard University
