Consider the nurse who hesitates to fully engage in empowered leadership behavior (e.g., questioning a written order for medication) because doing so challenges historically held gendered hierarchies in healthcare. Or The front-line employee, with an amazing idea, who never shares it because they are resigned to not being heard. Everyone suffers here! But why? Does it have to be this way?

  • To build capacity as change agents for a better organizational culture in healthcare, we will read, interact with guest speaker Senior Nurse leaders, practice with insights, and engage in personal coaching.
    -
    Our readings will sample many disciplines on gender/power, sociology, organizational psychology, psychoanalysis, economics, anthropology, history of nursing, etc.

  • Through examination of our personal theory-in-action, along with opportunities for giving and receiving coaching, course participants will gain practical skills for transforming and enhancing everyday interactions.
