Caring as a Managerial Strategy
Kroth, Michael; Keeler, Carolyn
Human Resource Development Review, v8 n4 p506-531 2009
The purpose of this article is to broaden the discourse about caring as a managerial strategy by describing caring from three perspectives: nursing, education, and management. The authors suggest that current organizational models inadequately address the caring connection between manager and employee. Definitions of managerial caring and care building are offered. A model, the Recursive Model of Manager-Employee Caring, is proposed and discussed. Potential lines of inquiry associated with the model and implications for HRD are reviewed. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
