Hi, welcome to my blog post. I have never had a blog post get more than 50 comments, so I am a bit overwhelmed. After responding to many comments, here is a note:

Note: I wrote this blog entry at the end of my 3rd 12 hour shift in three days. I was tired and I was emotional. It is a blog post, not an “article.” It is not researched or sourced, it is purely opinion.

The point of this post is that nurses (and many other professions) need to take the time to practice self care and to encourage one another to practice self care.

My biggest mistake in this post (and there are many) was to use “her” or “she” when I should have used “they” or them.” I ignored my male coworkers, and I should not have. You have my apologies, and I have corrected the post…

To Manage Well, Get Out of the Way

Management, like payroll and sales, is becoming another function to facilitate the work of the technically and creatively skilled people who do the heavy lifting. We need managers, not because people need a boss, but because people need someone to resolve the issues that are stopping them from doing their work. Managers aren’t ball carriers. They’re running interference for the ball carriers. In the world of minimally invasive management, managers have three primary jobs: they need to hire, they need to develop and serve their people, and they need to fire. But most of the time, managers need to get out of the way and let people do their work.

For Innovation, Invest in Two Kinds of Education

An ever-increasing number of suppliers provide products and services to help companies be more creative, collaborative, and inventive. But the roots of a company’s innovation capacity are simple: its talent pool and its commitment to building knowledge and competencies. Managers must invest in two kinds of education to make this work. First, they need to ensure that the professionals they employ are current in their fields. Every discipline is experiencing accelerated development — the downside of which is rapid knowledge obsolescence. Second, organizations should train their people specifically in the innovation skills needed to bring potentially valuable ideas to fruition.

This competency is not innate, but can be learned. Developing innovation skills requires mastering some fundamentals through repetition. Such training is rarely available in science and technology programs, so educate your talent pool accordingly.
