Trust: A Core Value of Healthy Organizations

Luzinski, Craig MSN, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE

Collapse Box


In this month’s column, the Director of the Magnet Recognition Program® provides an overview of the concept of smart trust. After hearing Stephen M. R. Covey speak at the 2012 national Magnet Conference®, Mr Luzinski became intrigued by this concept. The 5 smart actions identified as common among highly successful leaders and organizations are reviewed. The application of the smart actions by nurse leaders in Magnet®-recognized organizations may lead to creating greater prosperity, energy, and joy in a low-trust world.
