I recently worked as a healthcare motivational speaker for 250 nurses in a Colorado hospital. These nurses are doing a lot of amazing things dealing with change… And their leaders they asked me to come in to encourage them and help put all of the incredible changes our healthcare system in general, and their hospital in particular are going through into perspective. And to give their nurses some concrete suggestions and tactics to be both better leaders and to better manage change.
We had a great time. There was a ton of laughter in that room. But what I think is more important is that all of us left that event with new ideas we will incorporate into our jobs.These are some amazing people that make a difference every single day. With their permission I am sharing a little bit of their email.
It was most definitely epic! I loved every minute of it! I will be passing your info along to a couple other organizations in the Northern Colorado area. The questions were great and it was wonderful for you to have so much “insider” information into our organization. I bet even Chief Nancy was surprised by how much you knew! It was perfect! Our next team meeting is the 3rd week of May….I’ll email you back then with the group’s feedback.
Diana and Ruth are correct. I was shocked that Diana actually said anything. She is usually pretty quiet and reserved in large groups, but she must have really felt that the feedback about Ruth was important to share. It is those “little” moments in our days that can mean so much to patients and co-workers, and we seldom are aware of that.
Thanks again for your message! I will be sending out occasional e-mails reminding the team of some of your content…especially the manifesto. Loved it!!!!
Enjoy your weekend with your family!
