The Evolving Nurse Manager: Develop a Coaching Mindset

November 1, 2022

What nurses expect from their leaders is changing. Gone are the days of command-and-control leadership when staff was supposed to be grateful because they had a job. Today’s nurses want their leaders to be coaches who will help them learn and grow as professionals. The nurse leader has become the linchpin in staff recruitment and retention. When nurses don’t receive the coaching and feedback they desire, they will leave, as evidenced by high nursing turnover in many healthcare organizations. Nurses highly value managers who adopt a coaching style of managing performance.  For many leaders, this will change how they look at their leadership. Any new behavior change can be challenging until it becomes routine. Give yourself a competitive edge by learning the secrets of becoming a great leader through coaching. Taught by a nationally known certified nurse leader coach, you will learn how to build a coaching foundation, develop your coaching skills, and coach your team to a higher level of performance.
