Leadership for Hospitals & Providers
Unfit leaders can be like a virus in your healthcare organization. Poorly developed leaders result in poorly developed talent. Then, when it comes time to select additional leaders for your organization, you’re either forced to choose from these underdeveloped employees or look outside your organization for new talent.
Leaders hold the keys to employee engagement and employee development. Their success and failures affect your employer brand, your retention rate, and your ability to optimize your workforce.
While underperforming leaders create more work for employee performance managers, they also cost your hospital elsewhere. Whether it’s through the need to pay for overtime and agency workers when employees quit due to bad management or through an increased time-to-fill due to a tarnished employer brand, underperforming leaders hurt the bottom line. And don’t forget about the patients. Bad leaders have disengaged employees, and in healthcare, that means mistakes where people’s lives are on the line.
