Today’s healthcare climate continues to see an exodus of experienced leadership. As leaders leave, agencies lose years of knowledge and wisdom related to regulations, compliance, quality control, management, clinical skills, and overall operations. By mentoring future leaders from within, the agency can preserve and build upon the existing knowledge and skill sets of current staff members. This webinar will address core competencies for leaders and mentors such as self-knowledge, strategic vision, risk taking, creativity, interpersonal communication effectiveness, and inspiration. It will review the goals and objectives a mentoring program should have. Learn how to identify potential leaders from within, what effective mentor/leader relationships look like, what program options are available, and when to implement a mentorship plan.
It will discuss key compliance issues, including understanding MAC and OIG audits and how to take the stress out of surveys. This information is essential for all leadership, QA managers, and clinicians.
All it takes is one racially insensitive or gender-biased comment to turn off patients, employees, recruiters, and the community.
Don't allow insensitive emails, prejudiced posts, vitriolic video chats, or bullying staff to undercut your diversity and inclusion strategy and damage your organization's reputation.
