About the international network of nurse leaders

Our Story

Through our INNL Mastermind Groups, nurse leaders can enhance their leadership skills, receive support and feedback for their ideas, increase their confidence, and work together to lead our profession forward at a local or global scale.

ARE YOU:

  • Smart, ambitious, driven by a desire to help others?
  • Tired of not speaking up when you see possible solutions or better ways of doing things?
  • Frustrated with the current state of nursing and health care at a local, national or even global scale?
  • Done playing small, hiding out, wasting your talents and gifts in your current role?
  • Keenly aware that you have the calling to step up and make a difference?

If so,
the Impact & Influence INNL Mastermind
is the right group for you!

Have you ever wondered…

“Maybe nursing isn’t for me anymore…”
“When does this get better? Does it ever get better?”
“Is it time to just call it a career and try something else?”

You are not alone.

We’ve been there. It seems the nursing crisis is worse than ever. Staffing cuts, unsafe patient/nurse ratios, violence against nurses — it seems every day is a new nightmare.

NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO QUIT. NOW’S THE TIME TO SPEAK UP.
THE TIME TO FIGHT.

We, as nurses, need to decide to take action and stop just “doing more with less”. We need to start advocating for ourselves and our profession instead of only for our patients.

It’s time to find your tribe.

Here at the International Network of Nurse Leaders, we believe in the power of nurses to change the world.

We know that you, and other nurse professionals have the answers to many of the problems crippling the health care industry — you just need a means to be heard. That’s why the INNL has built a network of support, a way for you to share your knowledge and build your confidence to speak up.

Although the problems facing our profession can seem unsurmountable and sometimes feel beyond our control, we know that nurses and management have what it takes to start leading change. To start taking the action that will change outcomes. To start standing up for ourselves, our patients, our healthcare systems.

You can make a difference. Yes, YOU.

Maybe you’re thinking, “Yeah that sounds great for others, but you have no idea what I face on my unit (with my team, in my organization) everyday. There’s no way I can make any sort of difference.”

And that, my friend, is why we are facing the challenges we are.

A movement for change can start with one idea. One person standing up and saying enough is enough. One person wanting to try things a different way “just to see” if it’s an improvement.

But being that one person can be hard. It can be lonely. It can make you doubt everything about yourself and your abilities. This is why the International Network of Nurse Leaders was created.

The Network was created to give you support. To give you guidance and mentorship. To help you see that you are not alone and to connect with other amazing nurses who want to make a difference just as you do.

We help build your confidence, give you strategies to have those tough conversations with your colleagues/boss/administrators/direct reports. We champion your success and help you through the “learnings” (we don’t believe in failure).

Here’s what you can expect from our Mastermind Groups:

  • A private community for connection and support
  • Mastermind calls (“hot-seat” style – where you get all the attention from the group to brainstorm, solve or give support around your most pressing concern as a leader)
  • Leadership Book Club: Recommended readings and facilitated discussions to foster your growth as a leader)
  • Accountability buddy for ongoing support
  • Mastermind Roundtable follow-up for accountability and support
  • 6 Training Calls to increase your leadership skills and knowledge

Questions About the Mastermind Group:

“I like the sound of this mastermind group, I really do. I’m worried though about trying to fit it into my day – no two are ever alike! How can I participate when my schedule doesn’t allow for guaranteed attendance?”

We get it. We truly do. We’re nurses too, remember? Ideally, attendance would be mandatory but we are aware of the unique challenges facing nursing; be it shift work, the actual life or death urgent situations that come up (regularly), or being spread too thin already. We’ve structured this mastermind group a bit differently to accommodate those concerns. We still ask that you try and be on the live calls as often as you can, but there will be a way to still participate and be an active member of the group if you can’t. We have set up our mastermind to accommodate nurses schedules and busy lives ~ we can chat more about your concerns on the intake phone call to ensure our solution will work for you!

“I manage many nurses, some of whom may be also applying for this program. How do I participate with full transparency knowing that I may be in a group with a direct report?”

Great question. We have also considered how things could affect the functioning of the groups, and we’ve come up with a few solutions. 1) All participants are screened ahead of time and placed in groups with a variety of people from differing backgrounds and locations, 2) we have each member sign a confidentiality agreement and abide by a strict privacy policy, 3) you have full control over what issue you choose to discuss and how much detail you need to provide and 4) we also offer 1:1 coaching for issues that you don’t feel comfortable addressing with the group.

“Why should I pay to participate in something like this? I could just create my own or find a free group somewhere…”

You absolutely could! And if this program doesn’t feel like the right fit for you, we still highly encourage you to try and find your tribe.

What we’ve created here is a specific group of high achievers, motivated leaders and nurses with aspirations of making a difference. We know that you get out what you put in and by investing in yourself and your career, we hope you come out the other side of this program a stronger, more confident leader with an incredible network of like-minded nurses to support you along your leadership journey.

“I’m not an 'official' leader, I’m just a nurse. Yet, I feel called to this group. Will I be out of my element?”

First things first, there is no such thing as “just a nurse”; in fact, our founder & CEO created an entire keynote speech around this very topic. You are a nurse. That in and of itself is a powerful thing. We believe that ALL nurses have the opportunity to be leaders, regardless of whether you have an official leadership title or not. Leaders are found at every level in our profession, and whether you have aspirations of a career in leadership or not, this mastermind will help you identify, sharpen and maximize your leadership skills. Plus, being “out of your element” is where all the growth happens.

“Ok, I’ve decided to make this investment in myself and my career. What’s next?”

Wonderful! We love it when you commit to taking yourself to the next level. In an effort to keep these groups laser focused, extremely valuable and intensely confidential, we limit the group to 8 nurses. So your next step would be filling out an application form here. Once we review your application, all successful applicants are sent an email to schedule an intake call with our founder & CEO, Amy Deagle. On that call, if you both decide this is the right fit for you, you will pay a deposit to hold your spot and from there you will get an email with all the instructions, details and timelines.
