Preceptor Workshop: Developing the Informal Leader

Preceptors at Speare
(l-r) Carrie Ayers – Medical Assistant, Speare Primary Care, Emily Sandy – RT (R) (CT) PACS Administrator, Laurie Bolognani – BS, MA, SHRM-SCP HR Officer, Christianna Houston – Financial Manager, RehabFit, Sally Collins – RN Medical Surgical Unit, Amanda Fay – MSN, RN, Assistant Clinical Nursing Professor, Plymouth State University, Juanita Wade – Radiology Technologist RT(R)

Speare has recently been working with Amanda B. Fay, MSN, RN, Assistant Clinical Nursing Professor, Plymouth State University. Amanda has presented to 5 groups of hospital-wide department staff since April – Total 48 staff. 

The Preceptor workshop is designed specifically focusing on neuroscientific principles to engage the learner actively through discussion, story, and experiential exercises.

Each of the learners is asked to participate by providing stories from their lived experiences as they traveled from novice to expert in their field. Together staff explored behaviors that do not serve them or their colleagues in a professional setting and how these behaviors can be shifted to enhance growth personally and professional to increase staff retention, improve morale, ensure safe behaviors and positive patient outcomes. 

Preceptors balancing and making adjustments
Working together, getting a feel for things and making minor adjustments.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Learners will leave the workshop with a visual plan on who they want to be as a preceptor.
  • Learners will identify one mindset behavior that they will shift from fixed to a growth state.
  • Learners will leave the workshop with an awareness of their impact on the development of a colleague.

Speare is very appreciative of Amanda’s time and knowledge sharing to enhance the experience of new staff.
