· In 2009, The Joint Commission revised its leadership standards to reflect the need for a culture that supports quality performance. Leaders in accredited organizations are expected to “create and maintain a culture of safety and quality throughout the organization” (Schyve 2009, 20). Compliance with these standards requires leaders to

? demonstrate their commitment to quality,

? set quality expectations for those who work in the organization,

? evaluate the culture on a regular basis,

? encourage teamwork and create opportunities for this collaboration to flourish, and

? address disruptive behavior of people working at all levels of the organization.
