Imagine that you are a leadership consultant.

1. Using your example of conflict in your professional practice (from 
Week 4 Discussion 1: Conflict in the Workplace), build on the readings, videos, and peer input you received.

2. Critically analyze the situation and create a plan that would have helped to resolve the conflict and promote collaboration among the group.

3. Your plan should include a minimum of five scholarly references not counting assigned texts, and be seven to eight pages long (page count does not include the cover page or references list). Review your conflict scenario and include the following:

·
Comprehension: Review the details of the conflict scenario, identifying the type and effects of the conflict.

·
Application: Relate course content on delegation, empowerment, group dynamics, and constructive group roles and behaviors to the identified conflict scenario.

·
Analysis/Synthesis: Clarify understanding of the internal and external variables contributing to the conflict. Create a plan that would have helped to resolve the conflict and promote a high-functioning healthcare team.

·
Evaluation: Summarize the value of effective conflict-resolution skills for the nurse leader.

Conflict discussion from week 4 to write from:

There were many situations where conflict has arisen but one that sticks out that had a resolution attached to it was one when I was a new graduate nurse. When I was a new graduate nurse, it was very hard to establish yourself as a nurse when you are the new person on the floor. It was also intimidating because I was new, and there were people who have been on the floor for way longer than I have. I feel as though, this is an ongoing conflict that not only I had encountered, but many other nurses have encountered as well. I also don’t believe that this is just for the new grad nurses. I believe that this happens when someone is new, someone is traveling, or the person may be easily taken advantage of.

As a nurse on a medical surgical unit, sometimes we are overwhelmed by the amount of medication passes that we must do. For us to do our medication passes correctly, we like must have the correct vital signs. I was having a power struggle with one of the nurse assistants on the floor. This does not come to a surprise to me because struggles over issues of control are very common in interpersonal conflict (Northouse, 2021). She was working there for over five years and felt as if she could do as she pleases. When getting the vital signs, sometimes they do not cross over immediately on our side of things so that we can see them. It was time for another medication pass, and the nurse assistant did not alert me that one of my patients’ blood pressures was way above average. We are supposed to be alerted of out-of-range vital signs. She did not do her duty and communicate this because she did not particularly like me. In hindsight, she put the patient’s safety at risk because she had a vendetta against me as a new nurse. This conflict effected me with my satisfaction on the job and also had a negative impact on the patient (Huber, 2019).

If I was alerted about the above average blood pressure, it would have prompted me to administer medication passes in a different order than I was currently doing so. I would have promptly gone to the patient’s room to administer their blood pressure medications first instead of whatever order that they were in. This frustrated me immensely. What the nurse assistant did was put my license on the line.

I reported this to my manager after I administered the patients’ medications. We both went to her office and talked about the situation. The nurse assistant was very stale during the conversation and basically said she was busy getting calls and that it slipped her mind. She explained to her that the registered nurses are the ones that will be at fault if something goes wrong with a patient. She also explained that it is important to communicate between the nurses so that the patient may receive the best care possible. She also mentioned that nurses can do a nurse assistance job, but a nurse assistant is not tra
