    Do You Know The Key to Unlock Leadership? Wendy with Renita Alexander

    Do You Know The Key to Unlock Leadership? Wendy with Renita Alexander

    Renita D. Alexander is a servant leader, certified professional coach, retired Colonel, and author who is passionate about leadership! She started her company, Leadership Unlocked, after ending her U.S. Air Force career and discovered a missing element...real leadership...in many of the businesses she encountered.

    She has turned her passion into a thriving business and herself into The Leadership Locksmith. Alexander's goal in life is to help aspiring and ambitious leaders unlock and leverage their unique, innate leadership DNA so they can lead with energy, authenticity and agility.

    Alexander exposes her clients to leadership principals that celebrate the humanity of all humans. She helps them excavate the internal barriers that prevent them from accessing their unique leadership skills so they can show up confidently, earn the leadership positions they deserve and lead effectively. She guides leaders as they unlock and leverage their unique, innate talents to lead with authenticity and agility and trains teams to harness the synergy of their individual strengths and unleash their collective superpowers. In addition to her business, Alexander has lent her leadership expertise to several non-profits to include the one she co-founded, The Social Leadership Academy, a global education organization for aspiring social entrepreneurs and leaders. She is a former board director of The Ideal Candidate, a Chicago-based non-profit that fosters Black and Latino leadership through workforce training and professional development. She also created the Leadership Empowerment Academy for the Air Force Academy High School to help young leaders find their leadership strengths.

    Alexander is the author of Just Breathe: Leading Myself One Breath at a Time, a
    compilation of biographical anecdotes about her own leadership journey as well
    as observations from leading and coaching others, sprinkled with leadership truths from other leaders. Alexander is a lifelong learner with a BA in Communications, master’s degrees in Public Administration and Strategic Studies, a professional coaching certification as well as a personal trainer certification. She travels frequently with her daughter, Renise Alexander, a Delta Airlines flight attendant. She believes being who you are called to be is the journey of a lifetime.

    How Are Nurse Leaders Able to Retain Nurses During A National Nursing Shortage? Wendy with Lisa Bazinet, RN, OCN, CNML

    How Are Nurse Leaders Able to Retain Nurses During A National Nursing Shortage? Wendy with Lisa Bazinet, RN, OCN, CNML

    Lisa Bazinet RN,MSN,OCN, CNML is the Regional Nurse Manager of Oncology Services for Hartford Healthcare East Region. She has  experience in the inpatient areas as well, being both a nurse manager for an inpatient oncology unit,  28 bed medical surgical as well as IVT.  Lisa has been a RN for almost twenty years starting her nursing career first as an LPN. She has worked as a nurse at the bedside for over 17 years in various settings  before going into a more formal leadership role. 
    She is a graduate of St Joseph’s College in Standish Main obtaining her Master’s Degree in Nursing with a  concentration in Administration. She is also an alumni of both the University of Connecticut and University of the State of  New York. 
    She holds two certifications in both oncology nursing and nurse management/leadership. She is also a 2006 receiptant  of the Florence Nightingale award.
    In her spare time, Lisa enjoys walking with her dogs, two  German shorthaired pointers, Chase and  Echo, boating, reading mystery novels ( James Patterson, Tess Gerritsen)  as well as spending time at the beach.
    The reason why I wanted to become a nurse manger several years into my nursing career was because I had a  really great leader who could take even the busiest of days and  make them better. I think because she  made, the nurse at the bedside,  feel supported and valued. Nursing is hard work  emotionally, physically and mentally and to have  your leader “get it"  and support, hear you and value your opinion, is what I strive to do at all of my centers each and every day. Being a “hands on” manager is critical to a team’s success.  You have to walk the walk and talk the talk. My motto has always been “treat others as they would like to be treated”. Every day can be hard, but each day also can be a new opportunity as well.  
    She is  married to her husband Paul who teaches high school and  her and husband have two sons, Alex and Jack. And of course the two dogs.
