“In addition to the manager cohorts, the professional/leadership coaching with Lori was incredibly valuable. As a new CNO, I was asked to support our organization through the pandemic within my first year in this role. Throughout much of it, Lori was a constant who helped me to grow and develop as a leader, but also supported me in navigating the stressors of the environment to help build a more resilient and engaged workforce.”

Christopher Jordan

Chief Nursing Officer, St. Peters Acute Care Division

The experience and expertise depth of their coaches is impressive. The fact that each coaching participant could select a coach who fit their specific needs ensured buy-in. Our coaching participants continually offer tangible examples of improved leadership acumen and performance as a result of their experiences with Dion Leadership’s coaches. We anticipate that this will pay dividends in organizational effectiveness and ROI.
