Rethinking Healthcare Leadership in the 21st Century: Navigating Needs Across the Generational Divide

In this time of non-stop stress and change, it is more critical than ever for leaders to embrace their power to transform culture, engage with their teams, and optimize relationships in new ways. While healthcare executives know all too well the competing demands of patient care, quality, regulatory obligations, and cost, these priorities often obscure the importance of corporate culture.

Studies show that disengagement can lead to depolarization and burnout and that high-quality connections with leaders increase employee engagement. The entry of Gen Z and Gen Alphas into the workforce further heighten the need to embrace our differences and achieve success as an organization.

This insightful program will explore:

  • The importance of mental well-being in the workplace
  • The four foundational emotions and their purposes
  • The steps for integrating emotional awareness into the fabric of corporate culture
  • Strategies to meaningfully reconnect and engage with one’s team during 1:1s, team meetings, and larger organizational initiatives.  

A real-life case study will be reviewed to demonstrate how practical steps can be incorporated to solve real-world communication needs, close the gap on leader-employee engagement, and achieve incremental breakthroughs that contribute to a healthy work environment.
