  • The Great (Re)Engagement

    When nurses are engaged, patient, employee, and financial outcomes improve. No matter your role, your engagement matters and it matters a lot. Learn what makes a ‘Best Place to Work' in post-pandemic nursing and what role you can play in reversing the ‘great resignation.' Nurses and nurse leaders will reconnect with their values and turn those passions into actionable behaviors to improve the work environment.

  • Leading Well-Being

    One of today's toughest leadership challenges is creating an environment where one successfully achieves operational imperatives while sustaining a vibrant work environment to support a strong and stable workforce. The leader is a powerful and positive influence, particularly as they maintain a high energy, positive presence, and an authentic model of strength. This workshop provides powerful evidence-based strategies to develop, practice, and inspire well-being behaviors personally for the leader themselves and identifies strategies that result in healthier work environments and resilient high-performing teams.

  • Leveraging Influence and Impact: Achieving Excellence Through Powerful Leadership Behaviors

    Leveraging your influence as a leader is about recognizing that leaders must cultivate relationships, earn the trust of your staff, lead by example and realize that the power of your influence is found as you empower others. In this workshop your leadership team will master the behaviors and strategies that define influence to drive more trusting relationships, improved productivity, enhanced engagement and a deeper commitment to the organization. We will explore evidence-based influence behaviors that demonstrate authentic and transformational leadership by profoundly increasing impact and outcomes.
