Linda – Sharon Interaction

Linda: Alright. Hello Sharon.

Sharon: Hi.

Linda: Is there anything you would like to talk about today?

Sharon: Yes, there is. I am, I interviewed for a position in clinical performance improvement and I’m waiting for my second interview and I’m a little nervous about it because it’s a job that seems like a perfect fit for me, ahm…

Linda: Right. Well, what makes you nervous?

Sharon. Ahm, I think it’s ahm, perhaps the perception of some of the staff at the hospital at the campus where I applied. Ahm, maybe because I have a system role I’m kind of have a footprint all over and sometimes that footprint is good and positive and sometimes that footprint needs work and a and I think I am just a little nervous about their perception. Will they think I am competent to do the job? I believe I am. I think it’s just that I’m nervous going in to meet with them about it based on my concern about their perception.

Linda: Right. I do hear your questioning, and you recognize your positives in areas you that you could improve upon, but could you tell me more about perceptions from their point?

Sharon: Yes, ahm, one of the things I do is oversee the professional excellence program which is the clinical ladder. And the program itself has gone through many, many changes and from a very large program to small due to the requirements and there’s within the system there’s the desire for the managers and the CNOs to have a lot of participation. But it is voluntary and so they look at me like, you know, like I’m not doing enough. But it isn’t my only role. I’m part time and I have a lot of other responsibilities and I think that perhaps people don’t realize that not only do I do that, I also do a lot of other things that pull me in a lot of different directions and that the clinical ladder is not my only focus and that I am part time and so I think their expectation is maybe different based on what they think. Ahm..

Linda: Right.

Sharon: So…

Linda: It sounds like you have a terrific role and I bet you have a lot to offer others, ahm. So, we’ll stop there.

Sharon: OK. Thank you.

Linda: Yes.
