In the workplace worries scenario illustrated in this paper, I can use the problem solving tool as discussed by Hicks (2010). Hicks discusses that there are seven steps in resolving issues in the workplace. The first step is on identifying the issues – to clearly identify what the problem is, while noting that different people may have different views on what the actual issues are (Hicks, 2010). In applying this step to the current issue, I need to identify the actual issue in this scenario. The way I see it, the issue is about the uneven distribution in workload. The low pay and the heavy workload in the nursing profession is already an identified given in the current health care practice. My role as a manager would now be geared towards using the tools I currently have in order to ensure the effective running of the paediatric care unit.

The next step in the problem-solving process is to understand everyone’s interests. These interests are the needs which I would like to satisfy based on any given solution; in some cases, we often get do not take notice of our genuine interests because we have become obsessed or fixated with one particular solution (Hicks, 2010).

Slawson further argues that although both parties agree to be bound in a contract out of their free will, there are conditions that they are supposed to observe in order to ensure that they discharge their duties effectively.2 According to Glachant, the agreement may either be in black and white or just oral.3 Therefore, both parties are bound by conditions of the agreement and they are supposed to observe every bit of it in order to avoid the repercussions of neglecting those terms.
Is this ethical? Teams play quite an imperative role in an organization as well as in the personal lives. Generally a team refers to a group of people working together to achieve common goals and objectives (Fines, 2012). In the present scenario, team effort has become an essential key or a tool for the corporate world in order to reach the predetermined goals.
With such importance in their roles, workload on nursing managers has been observed to increase substantially. This paper emphasizes this particular issue witnessed in nursing practices, highlighting a scenario where managers decipher their professional dissatisfactions regarding increasing workload and irrelevancy or insufficiency of pay.
Conflict resolution often becomes a difficult task for the manager if he/she does not have the support of staff. As Leary (2011) points out, the modern nursing literature proposes different tools for facilitating conflict resolution in the worksite environment so as to assist nursing managers to deal with various workplace issues effectively.
