"Leadership Redefined: A Critical Shift for the Modern Workforce"

- Hannah Ubl, Communication and Culture Expert and Co-Founder, Good Company Consulting, Minneapolis

The tides have changed, and so have perceptions about what constitutes a good job, a good organization and good leadership methodology. With hospitals under pressure to perform while managing the stress of employee burnout, talent shortages and financial constraints, understanding how to lead and manage an engaged workforce is more important than ever. This presentation tackles critical leadership mindset shifts that create a work environment where everyone, regardless of title or experience, feels engaged, motivated and happy. After all, happy employees = happy patients = happy bottom line.

Learning objectives:

• Describe best practices from organizations with proven awesome workplaces and how their strategies can be adapted for Iowa hospitals.
• Explore a fresh perspective on work culture that challenges the way things “should be done.”
• Forecast how generational shifts will impact the future of work.
• Identify mindset-shifting insights on leading the current workforce and how to stay competitive.
