Long Term Care Leadership Development

For Long Term Care Leaders …  May 22-23 & 28-30, 2014. Lowry Center, Denver.

The Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence presents a 5-day Leadership Workshop for Directors of Nursing and Assistant Directors of Nursing in Long Term Care.  Leaders will develop greater skills and expertise in change management, diversity and culture, effective communication, conflict resolution and creating excellence in the workplace.  In addition, content specific to long term care will be presented by expert faculty, including end of life issues, culture change, preparing for regulatory visits, quality assurance and generational issues.  By the end of the workshop, directors will be prepared to develop a capstone project to be conducted and completed over the following 12 months. 

All participants in the 5-day Leadership Workshop will recruit an executive to be their coach in the months following the workshop.  A direct supervisor may not be your coach, but another professional in your organization or community could fill this role.  It is not required that coaches be nurses.  Coaches will receive introductory instruction in coaching through the Center’s 2-day Introduction to Coaching workshop and will meet weekly for 30 minutes in person or by phone with leaders over 12 months’ time.  Past participants have found this coaching support to be essential to their mastery of new leadership skills and very helpful in completing their capstone projects.

The 5-day workshop will be held in one 2-day segment followed by a 3-day segment. The seminar will be held from 7:30 am – 4:30 pm each day and participants are expected to attend all five days of the workshop.  Breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided each day.  Please click on the link below to for more course details and to sign up for this workshop. There is a participant fee for this five day leadership course to cover meals and materials.
