Accountability Leadership for the Health Care Team provides an innovative model for leadership, management, and working effectiveness in complex health-care systems. The focus is on bridging the gap between diversified—and sometimes competing—disciplines in order to work productively and achieve a health-care organization’s overall goals. The five-day program explores various types of accountabilities and authorities found in roles throughout clinical institutions; the course presents straightforward leadership practices to meet those accountabilities. The seminar explores—in-depth—effective leadership of individuals, teams, crossfunctional processes, and whole organizations—especially hospitals. The course incorporates many interactive learning modalities, including didactic lectures, small-group discussions, problem-solving sessions, discussions of cases submitted by seminar participants, Q&A, and group case reviews.

This course is designed so that participants will be able to:
  • Analyze current organizational practices and develop strategies to achieve an organization’s overall goals.
  • Implement processes to promote employee productivity and teamwork.
  • Utilize management strategies in different types of health-care systems (with varied accountabilities and authorities).
  • Manage team-working practices in each type of health-care organization.
  • Collaborate and achieve consensus in complex work environments with multiple, competing demands and requirements.
  • Implement systematic coaching and mentoring strategies to enhance employee effectiveness.
  • Apply productivity principles across multi-level, cross-functional managerial units.
  • Implement leadership strategies within an accountability framework.
