2017 OHA Leadership Development Series info is now available

Posted on: 2/15/17

Developing yourself as a leader is a key aspect of career growth. OHA is offering this series of programs that targets leaders, directors, managers or others in OHA member facilities who are interested in developing or enhancing their leadership skills. The 2017 series is now available with all the previous exciting sessions, plus an additional program on “Crucial Conversations.” OHA is continuing a partnership with Oklahoma City Community College in providing these sessions.

Making the transition to supervisor, manager, director or leader is a significant step. Research shows that managers are the primary factor that determines an employee’s desire to work for a hospital. This underscores the importance of developing the skills and competencies that create an environment of mutual trust, respect and open communication with the people they direct.

The series offers nine modules on critical leadership skills and competencies. Sessions will be held at the Oklahoma Hospital Association in Oklahoma City. Participants will also receive complimentary registration to the 2017 OHA Annual Convention & Trade Show.
