RESPONSE 1 TeShell, I enjoyed reading your post. It was straight-forward and informative. Organizations that foster employee engagement lead to high job satisfaction and employee retention, and improved performance within the organization. Shared governance is one major strategy to increase nurse engagement. Kanter is a sociologist and management strategist. He proposed that the level of participation by employees in an organization was linked to the level of decision-making authority held by employees (Kutney-Lee, Maguire, Germack, Dierkes, Hatfield, Del Guidice, … Aiken, 2016). Kanter also developed the Kanter’s theory of structural empowerment which focuses on the structures within the organization (“Overview of Kanter's Theory”, n.d). His theory believes that a leader’s power will grow by sharing the power through empowering others (“Overview of Kanter's Theory”, n.d). The sharing of power is evident in the increase in organizational performance. I’ve noticed this within my organization in the past.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
