Cassling Leadership Institute

On demand | Expires 3/1/2022

Do high performing teams need a captain? Absolutely! Teams require leaders with the ability to coach, motivate and impact the performance of their employees, departments and organizations. A lot of emphasis is put on leaders to drive outcomes for their teams. Yet, leaders may not understand how to influence multidisciplinary teams. During our time together, you're going to learn more about how effective leaders engage their teams and positively impact patient outcomes, communication and collaboration. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore each participant's contribution to multidisciplinary teams.
  • Discuss barriers and solutions to team-based performance.
  • Examine the role that effective leaders play in motivating their teams.
