Marie is extremely skilled in human resource and leadership management, and is passionate about influencing positive change within the workplace and its culture, with a specific focus on providing clarity and Soul Medicine for Nurses.
Marie helps Nurses get to the heart of their true potential, by inspiring and empowering them to nurture & understand themselves on a deeper level, and by assisting them to have the courage to connect to their true nature and purpose, through humility and compassion for self and others.
Nursing is one of the few professions where there is a culture of professionals "eating their young". A change needs to happen in this space. Alone we cannot even begin to change this negative culture which is rampant within the Nursing profession.
If it is to be different in this space, Nurses must not just accept that the culture is how it will always be. Change of this magnitude takes courage, it takes time and it takes patience and perseverance.
If Nurses don't feel empowered to speak up and to quit settling for unprofessional below the line behaviour, then how can we ever hope to change our culture?
To do this we must first understand that people are not their behaviours, that we are addressing the behaviour not the person, and this should be done with compassion and understanding, with total heartfelt honesty.
It is about each Nurse taking responsibility and not settling for anything less than an AWESOME culture.
They must be BRAVE.....They must become more COMPASSIONATE.....and they must strive for deeper CONNECTIONS with not only themselves but with those around them, by making better decisions, and through communicating more effectively.
This is about Nurses motivating self and others to not settle for a Broken CULTURE.
