Preparing Emotionally Intelligent Mentors in Practice
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001

The organization and delivery of health care continues to change dramatically. Changes in health care over the last decade have produced tremendous shifts in health care financing, and subsequently in the delivery of care. Cost-cutting measures have resulted in the closing of staff development departments and the elimination of people who traditionally served as key resources and mentors for newly graduated nurses and new nursing employees leaving a great void of experienced leadership available to the practicing nurse. Concurrent with these changes is a nursing shortage, particularly of nursing mentors in practice. As rapidly as the changes have been occurring, experts predict that most of the health care system will make the transformation to the next generation of service delivery over the next five years. Nursing must develop creative solutions to meet the challenges of health care delivery, now and in the future. The story of nursing that has historically directed our decisions about where, how and what to practice no longer accurately reflect our current world. Nurses are left with a profound choice: to create and shape a new concept of professional practice in a way that benefits the profession, our patients, and our communities, or to leave the shaping to others and risk being inserted into a professional environment in which the script is predetermined. The purpose of this project was to prepare emotionally intelligent mentors in practice by strengthening leadership competencies (personal and social) to empower practicing nurses to be instruments of change in their facilities. Daniel Goleman’s framework of emotional intelligence served as the compass for mentor development. The project, “Mentoring for Innovative Organizations” was completed as part of the Chiron Mentor-Fellow Program. The presentation is designed to provide practicing nurses with skills and perspectives that they can use to solve everyday challenges and reframe problems in creative ways in their work lives. The participants will engage in selected interactional activities from the workshop and lessons learned in mentor development will be shared.
