Program Description

At no time in recent memory have the demands on healthcare leaders been more exhausting and protracted than they are today. Even the most seasoned leaders and frontline professionals have struggled given the uncertainty, stress and personal safety/security issues associated with COVID-19. And concerns surrounding racial disparities and political division have only exacerbated the problem. So, what are leaders to do, both to boost their own resiliency and to better support their teams?

In this three-part workshop series led by a former health system CEO and authority on staff engagement, we’ll explore recent research around the changing workplace climate and specific leadership practices that can combat disengagement and burnout at all levels of the organization.

Following this series, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and describe the immediate and longer-term impact of the pandemic on workforce climate and staff engagement

  • Describe how the pandemic has underlined the need for strong leadership practices at all levels of the organization to maintain morale and staff engagement

  • Assess current situation and dial-up specific practices to better support frontline staff and the overall workplace climate
