Topic: Coaching and Mentoring - How does it apply to me?
Presenter: Hamida Bhimani
Description: This presentation will provide an overview of the perspectives of nurses who have participated in formal and informal coaching and mentoring relationships for leadership development in the Public Health Branch at York Region. We will describe the initial needs identified within our organization, which led us to work on enhancing coaching and mentoring supports for our nurses. The results of our RNAO fellowship helped us design a framework which identifies critical success factors for coaching and mentoring nurses for leadership development. We will demonstrate application of our findings to different areas such as leadership development, diffusion of innovation and best practice guideline implementation.
