Connective leadership is effective managing approach which addresses interaction and tasks’ performance of leaders and their subordinates. The administration must be entrusting and intrinsic to reach the collaborative and productive state of work (Major, 2019). Connective leadership requires to use of a variety of personal skills related to communication, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Indeed, applying relational, direct, and instrumental segments of this management type will not work without a leader’s attentiveness, empathy, listening, responsibility, loyalty, and assertiveness (Major, 2019). Connective leadership is suitable for modern teams because it aligns with diversity and equality valued in society. Moreover, this managing style helps reveal talents and provides space for their realization in the projects. I am a very careful, talkative, and empathic person, therefore my leadership characteristics are beneficial to building a collaborative and trustworthy relationship with my team. However, I frequently lack assertiveness, and it might challenge my contribution to others’ tasks and decrease the overall efficiency.
A nurse practitioner needs to have well-developed management skills to successfully interact with colleagues, subordinates, patients, and their families. Connective leadership is a powerful tool to influence change because it creates dedication and necessary collaboration for the teams to achieve goals (Major, 2019). As a nurse practitioner, I would apply this leadership style to address the challenges we face during working with patients. I would build a trusting community among nurses to exchange the experience and then identify the problems to solve. Then, together we will search for ways to solve them, set tasks, and delegate the necessary work. The power to influence change will be applied to improve nurses’ working environment and encourage them to do their best for the clients.
