IMPACT! PERSONAL POWER! INFLUENCE!
The Soul of Nursing Leadership Coaching / Mentoring Program
"Your crown has been bought and paid for. All you have to do is put it on your head" James Baldwin
As nursing leaders we benefit from the legacy left by transformational leaders like Florence Nightingale1 , Captain Mary Lee Mills2 and Lillian Wald3. They had no idea how many lives would be touched by their leadership but they did have a purpose and the vision to know that they wanted to make an impact on the lives they came in contact with. They did not go about their day saying “What will I do to leave a positive legacy today?” They just made a choice to live up to their potential.
We, as nurses, can wear the crown they left now. Transformational (legacy) leadership is when you help pave the way for someone else to wear a crown. You prepare for transfer of leadership by sharing knowledge, wisdom and the power of your gifts and talents.
Legacy leadership is when our ability and our will to help others is in sync. Skills must match desire. However, despite popular opinion, this synchronization doesn’t just happen. We need direction and support to grow and develop our abilities and our will. Your mind is where decisions, planning, focus and implementation begin. You need tools and strategies to get your mind on track. The Life Coach RN, Naomi D. Jones’ mentoring program will help you connect and balance your mind, abilities and will.
Most of us were never formally trained to be nursing leaders. We often had to “figure it out”. So many nursing leaders are frustrated, disappointed and overwhelmed. It may seem as though you don’t have time to help others. How do you open the door and train the next generation of nursing leaders when you're barely keeping your own head above water? Can you do it by just changing you mind? By making a few changes in your environment? It isn't enough to just figure out how to get through your emails for the day or deal with the difficult employee. No! You need more! You have to take care of yourself (your soul and spirit) before you can take care of others.
Naomi has 35 years of nursing experience and has seen the “good, the bad and the ugly.” She has lived that life of frustration to transformation and developed this program utilizing some of her hard learned lessons. The good news is, you can save time, energy and heartache because she will share those lessons with you. Her program The Soul of Nursing Leadership’s aim is to take your life and leadership to the next level.
Transformational (Legacy) Leadership demands that you develop your emotional and spiritual intelligence, resilience, and your authentic self. This is done by understanding the power you have when you connect your mind, body, soul and spirit.to your personal and leadership style.
What's the benefit of being a Legacy Leader?
Increased personal power and confidence.
Fulfillment because you will understand and operate in your purpose.
The ability to enjoy your work!
The opportunity to make a difference in your life and the lives of others!
Augment your competency as a nursing leader.
You see, everyone has the God-given right to "prosper and be in good health even as the soul prospers ."The soul is where the authentic you resides. It’s ground zero. What you feed or deprive your soul of, will determine how you feel about and manage your life and career. You have to be built mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually so you have something of quality to give to others. You can’t give what you don’t have!
The spiritual aspects of life cannot be ignored. When you look at the grand Sequoia trees, beautiful beaches and fabulous mountains around the world, you know there’s something more to our existence than just going to work each day. How and where do you fit into the scheme of life?
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope"
The answer is, you do have a purpose for why you are here. When your mind is focused and your soul and spirit are in proper order for you, everything falls into place. You can be peaceful in the eye of the storm! Are you ready to step into your prosperity and purpose? If so, Naomi’s mentoring program, The Soul of Nursing Leadership is what you need!
Getting to the mind, body, soul and spirit of your leadership is a process reminiscent of the nursing care plan. Though the care plan has often been regarded as a waste of time (probably because of the way we were taught it), the nursing care plan is an essential part of the nursing process. The Soul of Nursing Leadership has an essential component of personal reflection. It is a guide to help you identify important issues you are likely to neglect, which is usually yourself.
The Soul of Nursing Leadership is a 6-month mentoring program for nursing leaders and is designed for personal growth and leadership development. This mentoring program will help you save time, reduce stress and gain a deeper understanding of who you are as an individual and a leader. This is where you get to the heart of the matter, “Why am I here? Is this all there is?”
Just as the nursing care plan requires nurses to critically assess and develop interventions that are specifically tailored to each patient, the The Soul of Nursing Leadership Program gives you a blueprint strategy to support you as you assess, identify, define and develop realistic, achievable goals for your leadership journey while offering measurable markers for your success.
In the Soul of Nursing Leadership Program you will:
Understand your purpose as a leader.
Organize your environment so it's conducive to your purpose.
Identify and change habits and thought patterns that don't serve you.
Increase your ability to find joy and fulfillment in your work and personal life.
What is the outcome?
Too often we don’t have a plan so we’re not sure what outcome we are looking for. Without a plan, life can be a journey of just tasks – things to do that don’t have any sense of long lasting fulfillment. We become subject to the will and desires of other people or organizations. Naomi will help you design your personal careplan so you can achieve balance and live your legacy in the fullness of the present. Learn how to hear that still small voice that will launch you into big things!
