Nurse leaders know that change is inevitable. If you don't embrace it and welcome it, or at least accept it, you might find yourself fighting a losing battle.

Awareness is an important first step in the change process. Do a quick personal assessment of your situation, be honest with yourself, and be open to what you discover. Ask yourself:

What is changing for you and your staff?

Why are these changes occurring?

Where do you spend most of your time: fighting the change or managing the change?

What do your feelings tell you about what you are doing?

What support do you need when working through change?

What steps do you need to take to reduce the stress and move forward with the possibilities?

You don't have to go through this alone. People like me help people like you every day using coaching techniques. If you need support, please contact me for a sample coaching session.
