Abstract:
Transformational Leadership: Creating A Prosperity Planning Coaching Model for Registered Nurse Retention Nurses are challenged to maintain resilience against burn-out and develop successful coping skills in the work environment. The purpose of this project was to develop a comprehensive program to alert nurses to the risks of cumulative stress and provide training for self-care promotion to minimize the negative effects of compassion fatigue. The Nursing Leaders in an academic medical center noticed symptoms of compassion fatigue in the nursing staff. After obtaining a recruitment and retention grant, the investigators consulted with Dr. Charles Figley, traumatolgist, resulting in a shift in focus from a negative to a positive approach. Based on his recommendation a life coach model was implemented. The Life Coaches facilitated participants in setting appropriate goals and ensured consistent follow up. After IRB approval,thirty nurse mangers and staff enrolled in a 20-week partnership with a life coach to develop an individualized prosperity plan. The nurse and life coach had three face-to-face meetings and weekly telephone calls. Utilizing both a quantitative and qualitative study design, participants completed pre and post- intervention assessments and an interview. In addition, several continuing education programs on self care promotion and stress reduction were offered to the managers and staff. The Prosperity Plan program was very successful as demonstrated by significant improvement in Life Satisfaction scores. During the post intervention interview nurses expressed being better able to deal with stress. All nurses interviewed plan to remain at the hospital for two years.
