Leading the Change Process: Engendering Support for a New Future

February 26 (10:00 A.M. - 11:30 A.M.)
Fee: $200 per connection (1 Audio/1 Internet

Change is a way of life in healthcare.  The manager’s role in leading change is even more critical.  To be a leader with a sense of purpose and direction, today’s healthcare managers have to have a keen sense of direction.  Every healthcare organization has already experienced great change and more change is expected.  Some staff members may feel that the pace of change has resulted in chaos and crisis.  Fear sets in and resistance to anything new develops.  This is a time for practical management action.  Successful leaders introduce and lead the change process so that there is greater acceptance of the new direction, purpose or process.  Strong leaders play a key role in communicating change in a positive light.  Successful managers enroll their team members in a shared future.  In this session, you will receive practical "how to's" that have been successfully used by leaders to help their healthcare organizations move into a more positive future. 

Target audience: COO, CNO, nursing/hospital leadership, nurse managers /supervisors, medical staff coordinators, accreditation/Joint Commission coordinators, performance improvement directors, risk managers, and nursing home administrators
