#195: Creating Work-Life Balance and Overcoming Guilt as a Healthcare Leader featuring Michele Derheim
In this podcast, we talk with our special guest Michele Derheim about her personal experience of work-life balance and overcoming the feeling of guilt as a healthcare leader.
Michele is a Clinical Nurse Director for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), Pediatric Rapid Response Team, and Pediatric Dialysis Unit at the University of Michigan’s Mott Children’s Hospital.
She started working in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) directly out of nursing school and transitioned to the adult ICU. As a bedside nurse, Michele acted in charge nurse and staff educator roles, as well as teaching clinical groups of nursing students in their critical care rotations.
In this episode, Michele shares some important lessons about resilience, boundaries, and life priorities from her first formal leadership role.
She also shares how she applies the ‘Professional Life and Personal Life Polarity Map®’ as a tool to create and sustain dynamic balance in her life.
We also talk about how healthcare leaders struggle with feeling guilty for not being able to do more for their staff or being home more for their families and give some personal advice on overcoming the feeling of guilt.
