Multi-shared leadership between nurse managers: Experiences when more than two share the same chair

Abstract [en]

The number of employees in units with the most advanced healthcare has increased to unreasonable sizes for a single manager to handle. New organisational solutions have been looked for and has in recent years resulted in a reorganisation of the nurse manager role so that three to five nurse managers together work in multi-shared leadership constellations. The aim of this paper is to contribute knowledge about multi-shared leadership within healthcare through describing nurse manager experiences of multi-shared leadership in relation to what is previously known about shared leadership in pairs. The issue of shared leadership seems to have gone from being a bottom-up tight cooperation emerging based on a need from the managers themselves, to a top-down initiated solution of an organisational problem. In this transformation there seems to be losses in leadership qualities.
