Abstract

The purpose of this quantitative research was to study the relationship model between team leadership decision behaviors and team effectiveness as perceived by emergency nurses in the community. The sample comprised of 250 professional nurses who are team leaders in the emergency accident department in community hospitals. The sample size was calculated with Roscoe method and was stratified sampling. The research instrument was a set of questionnaires on team leadership decision behaviors. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistical analysis and path analysis.                 

The study findings revealed that team leadership decision behaviors, internal team decision behaviors, external team decisions behaviors and team effectiveness had high level (mean= 3.43, SD=0.44; mean=3.42, SD=0.41; mean=3.32, SD=0.49; mean = 3.44, SD=0.46) respectively, team leadership decision behaviors had moderate correlation with team effectiveness (r = 0.40) and had influence on team effectiveness (β=0.40). Team leadership decision behaviors had a high correlation with Internal team decision behaviors and external team decision behaviors (r =0.60, r =0.78) and Team leadership decision behaviors had an influence on team effectiveness through Internal team decision behaviors and external team decision behaviors (β =.27, β = 0.20). The relationship model between team leadership decision behaviors and the effective team was congruent with the empirical data (χ2 /df = 0.00, P = 1.00, GFI= the Fit is Perfect, RMSEA = 0.00), indirect effect through internal team decision behaviors and external team decision behaviors had an equal indirect effect (IE =0.16), the total effect of the model was 0.76 and can predict the team effectiveness by 65 percent (R2= 0.65)

This research suggests decision behaviors of team leaders both internal and external teams affect the effectiveness of the emergency team.
