Part 5: Reflections on the Unmasked: Profiles in Humanity and Resiliency series. Host Chandra Brown with Imana “Mo” Minard, Dr. Nicolette Louissaint, and Rasheda Hatchett.  Chandra Brown turns the tables on series host Mo Minard, inviting Mo to reflect on her own definition of resiliency and review some of the perspectives shared during the earlier discussions. Mo explores how multifaceted resiliency is, how it is often tied into inner strength, but there are many other moving parts too. She discusses how the pandemic led to a rapidly changing world, particularly in the nursing field, where we found ourselves being forced to be still during lockdown. This stillness allowed many insights to surface and has opened up much needed opportunities for change. The group discusses how important it is to recognize that burnout in nursing is very real, and was a preexisting problem before being exacerbated by the pandemic. Mo advises new nurses to focus on one thing at a time, so that they can avoid being overwhelmed by multitasking. She also shares with us how faith and spirituality are very important aspects of her own resiliency, as are her regular sessions with a therapist, and she shares how these sessions help her define coping strategies. Reviewing the previous discussions, Mo talks about the moments that were highlights for her, including linking opportunity to resiliency, not just bouncing back but bouncing forward, and the importance of taking the time for personal growth. In closing, she reiterates her concern that resiliency is a crisis that urgently needs to be unmasked, requiring us share support with each other, and aiming to be our true, authentic, organic selves.  Concluding this 5-part podcast mini-series featuring five discussions from Imana “Mo” Minard, Dr. Nicolette Louissaint, Rasheda Hatchett and Chandra Brown – four health care professionals who share their personal insights and perspectives about the importance of being resilient despite any trials or tribulations. Sponsored by Johnson and Johnson, the podcasts are candid, transparent and deliver an authentic conversation on how resiliency lets us transcend surviving and move up to a level of thriving.

Part 4: Connecting resiliency with opportunity.  Resiliency One-on-One: Host Imana "Mo" Minard with Chandra Brown. Mo Minard meets with Chandra Brown, Executive Director of Lifelines Counseling Services. Defining resiliency together, they explore the importance of bouncing back from difficult situations and seeing these moments as opportunities. Although we may have experienced moments that required us to endure, we can also see these times as opportunities to be a little better each day. We may also become so focused on our goals that we forget to celebrate the great things we have already achieved in our past, and so sometimes it is important to be in the moment and “just be” with our accomplishments. We can then use that foundation to give ourselves permission to be, to rest, to see the abundance around us, and then focus on achieving the dreams we have within us. Resiliency means we transcend surviving, and move up a level to thriving, where we can allow ourselves to feel the joyful gratitude of being. Chandra explores how holding the hand of opportunity within resilience starts with realizing you may already have all you need.   Fourth in a 5-part podcast series features five discussions from Imana “Mo” Minard, Dr. Nicolette Louissaint, Rasheda Hatchett and Chandra Brown – four health care professionals who share their personal insights and perspectives about the importance of being resilient despite any trials or tribulations.

Part 3: Creating space for resiliency to grow. Resiliency One-on-One: Host Imana "Mo" Minard with Rasheda Hatchett. Mo Minard talks with Rasheda Hatchett, MN, RN, the CEO of Hatchett Media about the importance of organizations creating safe spaces for their people to engage in the personal growth that supports resiliency. Individuals need the space to decide how they will move forward through their struggles, and to figure out the tools they need. Part of this process is deciding whether we already have the tools, or if we also need to ask for help, and to do this we need the people around us to meet us where we are in our walk with resiliency. Sometimes we need to step outside of our lives, take a pen and paper, and take an inventory of where we are, and then we can see the blind spots where growth needs to take place. This is a daily decision we can all take, to take big and bold steps towards the lives we wish to lead. Rasheda suggests we start by taking this inventory, and then using this process of putting pen to paper to choose where it is we want to go next.

Part 2: Resiliency is leaning towards wholeness. Resiliency One-on-One: Host Imana "Mo" Minard with Dr. Nicolette Louissaint.  Mo Minard talks with Nicolette Louissaint, PhD, who serves as Executive Director of Healthcare Ready. Together they explore how examining our lives in the context of wholeness helps us choose our best next steps towards resiliency. If we ask ourselves what wholeness looks like, we can then move towards that wholeness with an intentional goal. This way of thinking differs from seeing resilience as simply surviving, and at the same time draws on the many past experiences in our lives that give us strength. Mo and Dr. Louissaint also discuss our new pandemic reality and the challenges of overcoming unprecedented change, which includes defining an understanding of the gift of service, and the power of pouring that gift back into ourselves.  Second in a 5-part podcast series features five discussions from Imana “Mo” Minard, Dr. Nicolette Louissaint, Rasheda Hatchett and Chandra Brown – four health care professionals who share their personal insights and perspectives about the importance of being resilient despite any trials or tribulations.

Part 1: What really is resiliency? Featuring host Imana "Mo" Minard with Dr. Nicolette Louissaint, Rasheda Hatchett and Chandra Brown. We hear a lot about the importance of resiliency, but sometimes it is helpful to step back and really define what something is all about – and what it’s not. In this first of a 5-part series led by podcast host Imana “Mo” Minard, MSN-Ed, RN, CENP, EMT-P, a Director of Nursing for Beaumont Farmington Hills in Michigan, our group of experts discuss what resiliency means to them, and why it’s important to be thinking and talking about the myths and truths of resiliency right now. The group share their personal insights in a warm and inspirational discussion about how being prepared to ask for support is often just as important as good old strength and determination. Perhaps most importantly, our experts discuss how resiliency is best viewed as a life skill that can be learned and nurtured, rather than something that you either have or you don’t.
