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

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!
