Springboard Topic: Rolling Out Resiliency, Preview of ATD ICE 2018 Session lead by our very own ATD Maryland Member, Katrina Coleman
Staff burned out, stressed, running on empty? Maybe YOU are feeling those things as well but are putting on a mask to keep them hidden because you are the leader. You aren’t supposed to be running on empty, right? Wrong! Everyone is susceptible to feelings of burnout.
Burnout is a syndrome characterized by exhaustion, cynicism and reduced effectiveness. Research shows that quality, safety and employee turnover are all negatively impacted by burnout.
The good news is that resiliency is a skill that can be developed and strengthened. Resiliency is defined by our ability to cope and is a critical skill for leaders and staff. 30% of our resiliency is linked to our genes, however, 70% is influenced by our environment.
We will examine resiliency tools based on the research by Dr. Bryan Sexton, Duke University, and Martin Seligman, University of Pennsylvania. Tools such as 3 Good Things, The Gratitude Letter and Random Acts of Kindness. Utilization of these tools has shown a significant decrease in burnout and depression as well as fewer issues in dealing with difficult colleagues and a reported better work/life balance. Applying these tools will increase moral, teamwork and engagement.
Katrina Coleman, BSN, MSN, Director of Leadership and Engagement
