Culture-centered leadership in Nursing Management

Nurse Managers must work with staff to foster respect of different lifestyles. As a future manager, how can you provide culture-centered leadership to influence your team members and care for a culturally diverse patient population? Please incorporate concepts of cultural humility, sensitivity, or competence and one cultural theory into your response.

There are different ways in which one can provide culture-centered leadership to influence others. These include creating awareness of the issues that are affecting individuals in society, avoiding making assumptions, learning about other cultures, educating patients about medical practices, and practicing active listening (Quintana, 2018). Leaders should understand the importance of humility, competence, and being sensitivity when dealing with patients. They also need to teach nurses that everyone matters in society and therefore treating everyone right remains paramount.
