This is Healthcare NOW

The Problem

Many leaders and physicians joined healthcare because they had a calling  -  to help people.  But now, they find that following their calling has ever-increasing challenges, complexity, and chaos.  If you find that you are spending more energy focusing on daily challenges rather than the inspiration you used to feel, this workshop was created just for you.


The Solution

This is Healthcare Now is a one-day workshop designed to support you and your healthcare team deal with the problems of the industry while increasing engagement, effectiveness, and significantly improving metrics. In just one day, you'll learn real-world skills to avoid burn-out and continue to thrive in this high-pressure setting.

You will learn tools and techniques from experienced senior-level healthcare leaders on how to:

  • Look after yourself so you can look after others
  • Work with change through building resiliency
  • Effective communication to get the results you want
  • Build a culture that creates employees who are engaged not just for now but for the long term

Great for all healthcare workers; including doctors, nurses, and administrators; this workshop focuses on improving mindfulness, communication, self-awareness and other skills that will help you succeed in today's healthcare environment.
