Our podcast guest will teach you how to unlock the barriers that may be holding you back from embracing new opportunities and challenges

Director of the Florence Nightingale Foundation’s Academy Gemma Stacey

Are you being held back in your career by self-limiting beliefs?

Such nagging thoughts can hamper professional development, discouraging nurses from stepping forward for new opportunities and job promotion.

The latest episode of the Nursing Standard podcast hears from Gemma Stacey, director of the Florence Nightingale Foundation’s Academy, about how to overcome these doubts.

The academy runs a series of leadership and development courses, which includes advice on unlocking the barriers that hold nurses back on an individual level.

Why leadership and communication skills are vital

On the podcast, Professor Stacey tells Nursing Standard editor Flavia Munn about the importance of developing leadership skills from the outset of a nurse’s career, and how honing your communication skills plays an important role in professional development.

She also speaks about what she has learned personally as someone with dyslexia, and how to challenge perceptions and assumptions, plus the continuous and vital work of self-evaluation.
