Thursday Keynote Session - Less Stress More Success!

Healthcare workers are well known for going above and beyond the call of duty. But after two plus years on the frontlines of a global pandemic, even the most dedicated employees are becoming increasingly frazzled and frustrated. Burnout is rising. Tempers are flaring. Healthcare workers are leaving the profession in droves. The burden on those who remain continues growing. The needs are great and now is the time to strategically strengthen resilience and well-being. As healthcare leaders keep energized and engaged, they operate from a position of strength and guide those they lead and serve in to doing the same. 

Session Objectives:

  • The participant will increase resilience.
  • The participant will utilize proactive attitudes and behaviors.
  • The participant will mitigate Drainers, Takers, Gators and Players.

Thursday Closing Session - Boost Your Engagement:  Leading the Five Types of Employees and Patients

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone showed up, got along and did their job? Wouldn’t it be fantastic if patients were fully engaged in their healthcare and complied with recommendations? Unfortunately, in the real world Lackers, Slackers and Hackers exist and negatively impact engagement, performance and patient care. Highly effective leaders strategically halt destructive actions and encourage behaviors that lead to success.

Session Objectives:

  • The participant will utilize differing strategies when working with High Flyers, Steady Gliders, Lackers, Slackers and Hackers.
  • The participant will hold individuals accountable for tasks and behaviors and halt disruptive behaviors.
  • The participant will protect high performers from burning out.
