Abstract: This article describes how the authors have taught the core values of the McDowell-Williams Caring Leadership Model to hundreds of nursing leadership staff at Wake Forest Baptist Health using one-page summaries. The model brings together the caring theory of Watson (2008) and the leadership theory of Kouzes and Posner (2012). The summaries stimulate discussion and provide opportunities for leaders to reflect on their own leadership within a caring framework, as well as to help light the fire within their staff as is illustrated by the exemplars of each of the core values that are included in this article.
