Lecture Overview

Positivity affects perceptions, attitudes, and expectations. Positive emotions have been shown to increase feelings of energy, help you cope with adversity, and feel more optimistic about life. This session will help you to construct a positive mindset in the face of challenging situations at work – and at home.

Jane Stanfield is a health service improvement coach. She comes with 30 years’ experience in healthcare, half as a clinician and half in health administration, support and coaching. Having had a brush with burnout herself and several close family members receiving healthcare, her focus is on bringing compassion back to healthcare for all involved. Her current use of neuroscience and mindfulness at work enables healthcare providers to work with their own mind, emotions and behaviour to influence their culture in a way that will energise and motivate them as they manage the safety and reliability of their care and its focus on the patient while caring for themselves. Jane is currently coaching several nurse leaders and runs workshops on leadership, shaping cultures, wellbeing, and communication and patient safety (CAPS). Her most recent professional development personally is in LEAN thinking - reducing waste and improving flow in healthcare…because waste is disrespectful to people! See Educator Profile

This was a very good lecture but the sound was very poor. I found it difficult to hear the speaker often during the lecture.
