Competitiveness in the Workplace

Super Bowl XLVby Bonnie Hann, NCF Campus Liaison

With the Super Bowl in the news, I have been thinking about competitiveness and how it relates to our work places.

As more nurses are vying for a limited number of positions or wanting to move up the ranks, competitiveness takes place. Nurses may also compete for available resources, the attention of other colleagues, or for the assistance of MAs or CNAs. What other examples of competitiveness are you seeing in your work environment?

Is competition a negative thing? Are there positive aspects to competitiveness? After all, don't Christian nurses have a desire to perform their best at what they do? How does God want us to act and react to others as their actions affect us?
