A transformational leadership style may have an impact on your investigation process for a colleague who is a registered nurse and reports to one or more of your managers. Transformative leaders inspire team members by using motivation, communication and mutual trust. Transformational leaders use effective communication to share their expectations and feedback with colleagues in order for them to achieve better results. The leaders are more inclined to provide their teams with the autonomy to decide and to be able to do their own work. They can also help them gain confidence by empowering their members to become responsible for their tasks. The leadership style of this type also encourages trust and respect in teams. This can create an atmosphere where potential misconduct is reported without fear. Finally, transformational leaders often strive for excellence in all aspects of patient care including safety, quality and efficiency – all necessary qualities needed when dealing with an investigation into potential misconduct by one’s own nursing staff member.
