Abstract:Various studies report different findings about the relation between leadership effectiveness, communication and team performance in a cardiopulmonary resuscitation setting. Some studies report communication to be a prerequisite alongside leadership effectiveness for a better team performance. Other studies see communication as a tool through which leadership effectiveness influences the team performance. Based on these findings, the current study aims to examine the exact relationship between leadership effectiveness, team performance and the role of communication in this relation in a CPR setting. It was hypothesized that leadership effectiveness and team performance would have a positive relation with communication as a mediator in this relation. Analysis showed that there was a significant relation between leadership effectiveness and team performance. Higher leadership effectiveness resulted in a better team performance. The ratio of speaking turns did not show to mediate this relationship. The current study therefore provided confirmation of the importance of an effective team leader in a resuscitation team. An effective leader results in a better performing team and as a result in better patient outcomes in the case of cardiac arrest. The current study also ruled out one aspect of communication as a mediator in this leadership – team performance relationship.
