Our global leadership mentoring experiences
Lukkahatai, N., & Russell, K. (2020). Our global leadership mentoring experiences. Nursing Centered, Online.
Cross-cultural interactions and globalization have become common terms used in healthcare and nursing now that technology allows us to connect to anyone, anywhere, in an instant. International engagement of nursing academics provides an opportunity to share insights, experiences, and ideas, which supports discussion about nursing practice, with an aim to improve patient outcomes. In 2015, a group of Sigma members formed an online community interest group to facilitate leadership development for global nursing and create a sustainable process of mentoring emerging leaders. We first learned about the member-led Global Leadership Mentoring Community in 2017 at Sigma’s Biennial Convention and were ecstatic to be invited to participate. As the word “mentor” has different meaning to individuals, this is our journey and perspective on peer mentoring through this global leadership development community.
