Quantum Leap

This 12-month coaching and development program provides the learner with a strong foundation in research and evidence-based best practices in trauma-informed care in the neonatal intensive care unit and improvement methodologies while cultivating essentials skills to become courageous and authentic leaders for change.


This Program is for you if….

  • You LOVE working with babies and families and are always seeking new knowledge and better ways of providing care to the people you serve.

  • You are in search of a way to get everyone on board to translate best practice into the culture of care in your unit

  • You are conflicted with your core values and the current status quo in your unit which leaves you feeling out of alignment and maybe a little burnt out

  • You are eager to share your knowledge and passion with your colleagues, but you often encounter a lot of resistance to change, new ideas and new ways of knowing and doing which leaves you feeling very frustrated


In this program you will learn...

  1. How to create a vision for the future with clear goals and objectives that your colleagues and unit can connect with and implement

  2. How to design a high impact change program linked to specific outcomes for your unit

  3. How to effectively implement cultural change that transforms outcomes for babies and families

  4. How to anticipate obstacles in implementing changes and have clear strategies to overcome objections

  5. How to create personal transformation and increase your confidence applying research based tools and techniques

And if you are brave enough to admit it…

  • You have bought into the stories that you are ‘just a… FILL IN THE BLANK’ and consequently have no real power to create change

  • At times, you lack the confidence and skill to recognize your true power to be an authentic leader for change in the NICU and in your own life

  • You KNOW deep down you have more to give and are ready to do the internal work which will enable you to become a leader in this vital global movement of trauma-informed care for infants, families and professionals


This program is for you if...

  • You can see the opportunity to create change that transforms the lives of your patients and their families and believe in following an evidence-based approach to change outcomes

  • You have a vision for what's possible in your unit and by following a clear strategy and framework for change you would finally be able to bring your vision to life

  • You want to reconnect with your passion and purpose and know the results you create every day are fulfilling your potential and promoting excellence in your NICU

  • You recognize that your current habits can get in the way of you operating at your highest level and you are ready to be supported and challenged to make changes in your own life to become more confident and successful

  • You want to be part of an international tribe of like-minded NICU professionals that are creating transformation and changing the hospital experience for NICU families around the globe
