Nurse burnout, as measured by feelings of emotional exhaustion and lack of personal accomplishment, is a significant factor influencing how satisfied patients are with their care. (US NLM and NIH 2004)

“Job dissatisfaction among hospital nurses is 4 times greater than the average for all US workers, and 1 in 5 hospital nurses report that they intend to leave their current jobs within a year.” - (JAMA 2002)

“If hospitals could reduce their proportion of burned-out nurses to 10 percent from the 30 percent that is typical, they would…save $41 million. ‘It is costing hospitals more money not to spend money on nursing,’ said Linda H. Aiken, director of the Penn Nursing School's Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research.” - (Sapatkin 2012)

“…The U.S. faces a projected shortage of one million nurses by 2020 according to the Department of Health and Human Services.” - (HRSA 2014)

A survey of local nurses reports:

61.5% Unmanageable Workloads
50% Unreasonable Deadlines
47.6% Opinions Ignored
43% At Risk of Making Clinical Error
54.5% Work Negatively Impacts Health
59% Burned Out
50.7% Likely to Leave Nursing

Parents, Grand Parents, Care Givers

You work so hard and care so much about your child’s future, yet they don’t seem to listen, can be disrespectful and be very uncooperative. 

Our Get Kids Cooperation and Respect Workshop will give you just what you need in 3-hours to get them listening, cooperating and being respectful. The training supports and nurtures you while giving you tools to connect, communicate and influence your child’s behavior so you can all have more fun and less stress.

Three years old child declared, “Mommy, you are the BEST mommy EVER!” after one session of Tag 4 Change Training 

Used to be an authoritative parent, now I really am focusing on TAGGING my kids and the students in my class by pointing out their Talents, Abilities, and Gifts (TAGs) . It has reduced stress & conflicts by more than 50% daily on the job and in my personal life. 

Not only is my older child back on track and achieving success at school but everyone is getting along better.  At work, since I have been guiding the kids to communicate with each other vs just giving a time out or no recess to deal with an argument, they are developing empathy and cooperating. For the first time, the kids are encouraging each other to behave. Thank you, Marty. My life is much more peaceful and work more enjoyable. Heather Walcott, Counselor and Teacher

Personal & Professional Development Melbourne Orlando Brevard County

Marty, through our work together not only I am I able to feel more confident about who I am, but also, my relationship with the ones I love has become much more nurturing and supportive. I honestly never realized how guarded I was, how much work it was and how much I was missing out on.    

The other night, my daughter’s best friend slept over. I hugged my daughter good night and then I gave her best friend a hug. She had a big smile on her face and said, “Mamma Shelley, you don’t hug, what happened?  I said,” I do now.”  She said, “ Oh I love the new Momma Shelley even more...” Wow. Thank you 
Marty for helping me open my heart to be able to give love and except love!

Pastor Julius Tugume, Director of an Elementary and Secondary School. Ever since the Confidence Builds Success Academy (CBSA) brought the teaching of TAG for Change to our schools, our students have good reputation in the communities. 

There is good cooperation between students and teachers and the staff value each other. No more competition No more discipline problems. Children enjoy being at School. The grade performance of students has increased from 30-50% to 60-90% as we continue sharing the message our goal is to rise it to 100%. Thank You to the entire Team of Confidence Builds Success Academy in USA and Uganda for bringing us this message of civility.

Teacher Duku Julius: When I was a student in the elementary level, my teacher used to seriously punish me. I grew up knowing the work of a teacher is to beat and torture the foolish learners. For the past three years as a teacher, I have been torturing the learners who I thought were foolish. Many have dropped out. Others, I would suspend. I even wanted to quit teaching profession because I was facing problem with students' parents in the community.

But with great appreciation to CBSA team for extending its TAG4Change healing message to our school, I am 100% percent changed as a teacher. I now know that no child was born foolish. Courtesy of the TAG message, I know how to discover children's TAGs. I now LOVE being in class with my learners. I learn more from them and they too learn more from me. MUCH LOVE and GRATITUDE to all CBSA TEAM in USA and AFRICA.
