Aug 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/tools-for-teams-series-leading-versus-managing-improve-workplace-culture-outcomes-with-both

We often think of people – or even ourselves – as leaders or managers, but not both.

Learn what it means to blend the two styles and how doing so creates a strong team and improves outcomes. Take ownership of daily opportunities to both lead and manage, first ourselves, and then to serve those around us.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Explain the difference between leadership and management
  • Adapt your approach to each situation to benefit the team and agency mission as a whole
  • Win the respect and affection of colleagues and employees
  • Amplify your influence and impact at work using a clear and consistent relational style

Save when you buy the series!

WEBINAR DETAILS

Leadership is a daily choice in life, work, and relationships. Professionals who are tasked with managing projects and teams and are held accountable for the supervision of others must learn to lead and manage. This session will clarify the differences between leadership and management in order to better understand how each can be used in helpful (and harmful) ways. When good leadership and management are prioritized and demonstrated by all — not just discussed or put on a poster — the office culture and agency can become life-affirming, healthy, creative, and inspiring. Learn to turn words into actions and put new tools/information to work with this success-focused webinar!

THIS WEBINAR WILL BENEFIT THE FOLLOWING AGENCIES:

  • Hospice
  • Home Health
  • Home Care
  • Palliative Care
