Identify leadership behaviors that build trust within teams.

Prepare a 1012-slide PowerPoint presentation for department managers on building leadership and trust in collaborative teams.
Perhaps the best predictor of team success is its clarity of purpose and the team’s commitment to achieving it. To support that purpose, a team needs a process that moves smoothly from vision and mission to goals and tasks in order to achieve the desired outcomes. The foundation of both purpose and process is leadership.
Any form of collaboration is an inherently human process. The culture of an organization can dramatically affect team efficacy and performance. The glue that holds teams together is trust. Three factors can help build trust in collaborative environments: performance and competence, integrity, and concern for the well-being of others.

“There is a need for nursing leaders to provide inspiration, mentorship, and direction, whether it be for a patient or the profession” (Mahoney, 2001, p. 269). Mahoney’s point is that leaders are needed at all levels, all functions, and all specialties of nursing. Leadership skills are especially important when guiding or facilitating a team.
But what makes a skilled leader? Aranda, Aranda, and Conlon (1998) suggest that five elements are critical: sharing an inspired vision, challenging team processes, modeling effective team behaviors, empowering team members, and encouraging the heart (pp. 4546). Leaders must deal with conflict, decision making, and goal achievement.
In health care today, there are more teams (including virtual teams) of multidisciplinary professionals than ever before. To lead these teams effectively and successfully, the roles and responsibilities of each team member need to be clearly defined, along with clear descriptions of how the team will make decisions.
Trust is an important factor in multidisciplinary team collaboration as well, and it is measured in terms of reliability and communication. A competent and effective leader knows how to build trust across boundaries (geographic, cultural, gender, age, et cetera) to tap the skills and talents of each team member, resulting in team success.

To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community.
o What leadership skills are most important for leading successful teams?
o What kind of team leader are you?
o How do leaders in your own organization build and maintain trust?ASSESSMENT INSTRUCTIONS
You have been asked by organizational leadership to develop a PowerPoint presentation for department managers on building leadership and trust in collaborative teams. Your presentation should be 1012 slides in length and include a references slide at the end. Use the notes section of each slide to expand your talking points and reference your resources. Be sure your references are formatted according to APA guidelines.
This assessment examines two critical components for interprofessional team success: leadership and trust. Develop a PowerPoint presentation in which you:
o Identify at least three leadership behaviors that build trust within a team.
o Identify at least three leadership behaviors that undermine trust within a team.
o Explain the consequences of a team that does not trust its leader in terms of patient safety.
o Describe strategies team members can use to build trust among one another in terms of skill, knowledge, and responsibility.
o Describe principles of effective interprofessional team leadership. In other words, what skills and qualities should a good team leader possess? Is there a difference between being a good leader and being an effective leader?
Additional Requirements
o Include a title slide and references slide.
o Create 1012 slides in addition to the title and references slides.
o Use at least three current scholarly or professional resources.
o Use APA format for references.
