Learning to Lead: Transformational Leadership


Clint Maun, CSP


Everyone on the team can be a leader.  Managers can transform themselves from being involved in daily step-by-step management and move toward truly leading the organization to the next level of successful outcomes.  This is particularly important in health care and senior housing because we traditionally hold onto parent/child management concepts and do not engage co-workers to be involved in leading teams toward success. 

Where operating capital is concerned, an organization’s success depends upon removing the parent/child concept, organizing teams for successful outcomes and trusting individuals to lead.  Managers must heighten their leadership skills themselves and eliminate leadership based upon the concept that “I’m the boss” and “What I say goes”.  We have to create a new level of leadership, particularly in the face of new survey regulations, person-centered care concerns, service excellence approaches, market competition and staff retention. 

Attendees of this program will walk away with a step-by-step understanding of how they can make a difference on a daily basis by their engagement processes with other individuals, why this is necessary, and how they can overcome tough situations that allow individuals to return to old approaches that don’t work anymore.

OBJECTIVES:
At the completion of this program the attendees will be able to:
  1. Understand the difference between leadership and management.
  2. Develop specific leadership strategies that can be implemented by anyone.
  3. Create 50/50 relationships.
  4. Implement the “One Great Unit” concept.
  5. Handle negative attitudes that interfere with team success.
This presentation includes lecture, group discussion, question/answer, case study and individual action planning.
