Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Ellen Bettenhausen, Consultant, Organization/Leadership Consulting and Michael Easton, Performance Improvement Project Manager, Valley Children's Hospital

To adapt and survive in times of great change, organizations must take advantage of every bit of organizational talent. This is particularly relevant in healthcare. As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, leaders face many challenges: aggressive growth, competition, changing payment models, advanced technology, a multigenerational workforce, and more. Leaders must build an organization capable of adaptive growth while engaging the hearts and minds of all the workforce.

In this webcast, you will learn about:

  • the design of a year-long program focused on building leadership effectiveness
  • the results of a research study designed to measure the impact of this program
  • specific leadership behaviors that drive engagement in the workplace.
