Reports on the high degree of nurse burnout, toxic work environments, and a chronically disengaged workforce are creating significant problems for the nursing profession. Knowledge of how to build and keep positive momentum through behavioral incentives is challenging for leadership. Imagine a community of nurse leaders able to surpass the limitations of traditional leadership strategies and proactively address the negative consequences inherent in the highly unpredictable state of health care and the record levels of caregiver stress and burnout, in today’s healthcare environment. Imagine leading from a strengths-based philosophy armed with the latest research and evidence-based practices in gratitude and contemporary neuroscience, in order to create greater employee engagement and positive work environment. Nurse leaders attending this program will be able to adapt their leadership style with how the human brain actually works and successfully lead their organization through this time of disruptive change.
