    RN4CNE Newsletter  February 2019

    Dear Christine,

    Last month we talked about developing a personal growth plan to guide you to your goals. Life circumstances may create detours or changes in your plan along the way; however, having a good road map to get you where you want to go in life is essential to success. This month, let’s talk about an important element of a personal growth plan: life values, including your personal values, family values, and professional values. 

    Understanding what makes you uniquely different is what sets you apart from your peers. For example, your personal values may differ from a colleague but you both have the same professional goal of achieving a specialty certification. To be a comprehensive road map, you should clearly define each section of your values: personal, family, and  professional. Making a list of these values will help you develop your core vision and a personal mission statement. 

    Why should you develop a personal mission statement? A personal mission statement can help guide you through tough decisions in personal, family, and work life where your values are challenged. When you meet a crossroads challenge - such as a job role which requires that you work longer hours, moves you to a new city, and/or requires you to obtain a degree - you can consult your personal mission statement and personal growth plan to keep you on the correct path.


    This month, be challenged to think about what you will put into your personal growth plan and create a personal mission statement. What do you value the most? What are you unwilling to compromise in to achieve your goals? Setting your boundaries, knowing your core values, and being able to work within your personal growth plan is key to achieving success in life. 

    We can support you in your personal growth plan. Our leadership programs are designed to give you the vision to be a more effective leader. For specific growth focusing on you, check out the Healthcare Team Leader Certificate Program and Self-Leadership & Team Empowerment

    We hope to see you soon!

    Susan, Diane, and Lisa
