Creating healthy workplaces: what every nurse can do.Pa Nurse. 2007 Jun; 62(2):25, 27.PN
Strong, proactive people focus their efforts, time, and energy on that which they control. Your co-workers' behavior can influence you, but never control you. Neither do you control your colleagues. No matter what your role or practice setting, or your level of power or experience, you do control your own behavior, and can thereby influence others in your workplace. Focus on yourself and how you behave at work. By choosing constructive, collaborative, respectful ways of interacting, every nurse can be instrumental in creating healthy workplaces.
