Healthcare leadership at its heart has been acknowledged broadly as a practice of influencing others with the aim of facilitating the accomplishment of common organizational objectives. In nursing literature, healthcare leadership is seen as a complex and multifaceted process that involves the provision of resources, support, coordination and motivation required by individuals and teams to perform their tasks effectively and achieve the set goals. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate the impacts of healthcare leadership on Jordanian Public Hospitals teams. The study used the team climate as the mediators of group team outcomes and adopted leadership, while the group potency reinforces leadership. In terms of methodology, a sample of 318 healthcare professionals were recruited, which was a representation of 78 teams from different Jordanian public hospitals. Hierarchical regression analysis was used in investigating the moderating and mediating effects. The study found out that there was high relationship between leadership and team performance in Jordanian Public Hospitals (P<0.05 at 0.45). Evidenced by the findings from the study, the study concluded that there existed an effect of change-oriented leadership and team performance and was moderated by innovation climate and global climate. Therefore, considering that the actions and strategies implemented by change-oriented leaders in Jordanian public hospitals are moderated and mediated by other factors, the leaders are advised from this current study to put into consideration these factors before embarking on change.
