Cassling Leadership Institute 

Mike Freel, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Director - Healthcare Programs; Bellevue University

On demand | Expires 12/1/2022

*Approved by the ASRT for 1 Category A Continuing Education Credit.


What’s your department’s strategy? Have you set the right course? Does it support your organization’s strategy? Most of us are more aware of how our organization operates day-to-day rather than how it views strategy. How is strategy defined and how do great leaders set the direction for their departments or organization? During this session, participants will review their strategic roles as captains of the ship and how they can actively set the course for the organization’s journey.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how basic strategies affect the direction of the organization.
  • Discuss the four phases of a strategic management model.
  • Experience how critical thinking and creativity contributes to strategic management for the organization.
