I am a person who has been passionate about relationships for as long as I can remember. I have been observant and inquisitive about what promotes positive interpersonal interactions; what leads to negative encounters; and what it takes to relate effectively.
Since 1987, I have been a nurse passionate about relationships . As a direct care provider, a shift supervisor, and unit manager, I was observant and inquisitive what is happening when I, myself, and team members are successful in relating effectively, and when we are not. Relating to a an incredible diversity of people is integral to the work of most nurses. I experienced many successes and many struggles in relating to patients, families, and other team members, and many employees reported their struggles to me when I was their manager.
