Nurse Leadership Seminar

Get a Competitive Edge on Staff Retention and Satisfaction

Become the Boss No One Wants to Leave

Nurses’ expectations of their perioperative leaders have shifted dramatically from “command and control” to a coaching approach focused on helping nurses learn and grow as professionals. The nurse leader is the linchpin in staff recruitment and retention – and key to reducing nurse turnover. 

Are you prepared for this role?

Join AORN for an engaging, interactive one-day seminar and learn the secrets of how to become a great leader through coaching, presented by nationally known leadership coach and author Rose O. Sherman, EdD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN.

About the Spring Seminar:

Dr. Sherman will guide discussions and exercises that expand your coaching toolbox and add practical skills to help you win the talent war and become the boss no one wants to leave by:

  • Breaking down essential skills and behaviors for a coaching mindset that helps staff thrive
  • Building a coaching foundation to elevate your team to higher performance
  • Learning practical strategies to quickly move from stressed and overwhelmed to confident in your role

Workshop Objectives

  • Describe what the contemporary nursing workforce wants and expects from their perioperative nurse leaders.
  • Identify the differences between a traditional manager mindset and a coaching mindset.
  • Provide an overview of how to build a coaching foundation in your leadership.
  • Apply the GROW coaching framework to challenging professional development, performance management, and career coaching situations.
