Director of Professional Development, Education and Research | Baylor Scott and White McLane’s Children’s Hospital

"The Eradicating Bullying and Incivility course was so helpful because I learned new language and techniques to stop bullying and incivility in real-time. I also now value the importance of documentation.”

Melissa Benesh, MSN, RN

Manager, 3N Mother/Baby | Manager3N Mother/Baby The University of Chicago Medical Center

“As a nurse manager, I found the Eradicating Bullying and Incivility course to be extremely helpful in recognizing and addressing disruptive behaviors on my unit. Renee offers great scripting and "real life" examples on how to confront staff members and hold them accountable. Excellent course, I highly recommend!”

Gina McDaniel, RN, BSN, OCN, HN-BC

Manager | Moffitt Cancer Center

"Unfortunately dealing with disruptive behaviors is a part of every workforce. A lot of managers including myself are not equipped to handle difficult conversations. It is easier for me to give Kudos and appreciations for a job well done. I was very comfortable providing counseling for poor attendance or documentation issues; but for nonverbal or disruptive behaviors were definitely a challenge. The straightforward educational material and real life examples have given me the tools as well as the confidence to have the difficult conversation my whole team needs me to have in order to create a Healthy Workplace for each of them. Thank you Renee and Team"

Star Rebb, MS, APN-BC

Manager, Labor and Delivery

“The Eradicating Bullying and Incivility course was very easy and convenient for listening. Renee captured and held my attention through each module. The tips were extremely helpful and practical. I learned so much about managing bullying on my unit and I feel more confident. This is a fantastic program! Thanks Renee!!”

Laura Berritto, RNC, MHA

Nurse Manager, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit | Santa Clara Valley Medical Center

"I learned so much, and have been implementing everything from the Eradicating Bullying and Incivility course. I used the Jedi mind trick and although it was scary to do, it worked! I felt so satisfied after several difficult conversations and staff are stating that they are seeing changes in the behavior of people I have been working with. This is definitely something that all new managers should be taught right from the beginning."
