Healthcare’s unique challenges mean that we need effective leaders today and tomorrow. The leadership skills of yesterday won’t suffice. We need a structured, deliberate, and effective approach to leadership development.
A recent survey shows that hospital leader pay continues to rise – in a time when cost containment is a priority. Click here to see a summary of the survey results in Modern Healthcare.
One reason is that it’s expensive to recruit a skilled, experienced leader. You can reduce some of these costs by developing leadership talent internally. We need to get better at identifying team members with leadership potential, and then leveraging that potential to create the leaders we need.
Paul Glatzhofer, Manager of Select International's Leadership Solutions Group, will be joining a distinguished panel for the next webinar in the HealthStream Leadership Series, The 5 Tallest Hurdles to Developing Healthcare Leaders (and ways even short guys can surmount them) August 31, 2016 at 1:30 EST.

Paul will be joining experts from Franklin Covey and HealthStream’s Engagement Institute. He’ll be sharing what he’s seen in healthcare organizations that “get” leadership development:
They create a culture of development.
They focus on identifying team members who are capable of transformational leadership.
They understand the impact of the pace of change. They need to be focused on people who can anticipate the challenges of tomorrow.
They find innovative, effective ways to KEEP leaders engaged in their own development.
They view development as a process, not an event.
One of the innovative approaches created by Paul and his team is our Success Coach® platform which integrates an easy to use, configurable, leadership skills assessment, with a mobile developmental portal and an on-going, real-time feedback system. To learn more about Success Coach®, click here.
