WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Current or anticipated leaders ranging from high-level executives and managers, managers expecting to take on leadership roles, and those who are not in management positions but are expected to lead and influence others in the course of their work, as well as past participants in LHA leadership courses.
Join your peers for a day of diversity as you discuss the nuances of today’s workforce and the challenges of the diverse populations we encounter as co-workers, subordinates, peers and patients. This workshop will help identify the skills you need to successfully maneuver and effectively engage the multi-generational culture and the ever-evolving diverse population. This program integrates components of psychologically safe spaces that allow participants to feel comfortable asking questions and sharing their views. The aim is to help providers develop communication skills for obtaining medical and sexual histories that positively affect patient outcomes and guide future needs through providing culturally-competent care for all individuals, families and communities. With several generations – with different communication, learning and working styles – now together in the workplace, we must first understand what is at risk and what is possible for businesses of today and tomorrow. Self-awareness is the first step to better understanding others in the workplace in order to reach our full potential and thrive. We’ll explore our communication styles, what the common ground is and how to harness the power of a diverse workforce.
