07 Sep Give Your Leaders the Skills They Need to Succeed
When is the last time you had leadership training that made a difference?
How many improvements to the organization were realized and sustained as a result of that training?
If you are like most healthcare organizations… the answer to these questions is too long ago and not enough!
Traditionally, employees who excel at their work are promoted to a managerial or supervisory leadership role, and while clinical and technical excellence serves as the foundation, it is not enough to ensure success in the role of having employees report directly to them. Knowing how important the role of Leadership is in creating a positive environment; managers, supervisors and directors need to be equipped with the tools and processes for understanding, motivating and leading their individual direct reports. They are responsible for creating an environment where people want to perform their best, reach goals, successfully complete projects and achieve outstanding outcomes.
Some managers, supervisors and directors can perform successfully without any formal training and learn the skills on the job. This is rare and relying on innate talents can be a costly mistake in the long run to the team and to the organization. According to research cited in HR Professionals magazine, a survey showed that only 52% of companies trained their leaders once a year or less. This lack of training is reflected in a Conference Board Report which found that less than 1/3 of all supervisors or managers were perceived to be strong leaders. Are these statistics the same for your organization? Are 2/3 of your managers, supervisors and directors underperforming? Are 2/3 of your managers, supervisors and directors causing you stress, poor employee engagement, lost revenue, and dissatisfied customers?
