Part 2 – Communication, Coaching, and Care. This training uses proven research to help rehabilitation professionals develop the tools and support they need in the workplace to communicate more effectively, work together more productively, and become the positive, energetic leader they need to be in order to thrive in the workplace.

Strategies for Leadership Part 2 is a virtual training.

  • Communication and Feedback (Oct 4) - Communication is one of the most critical tools of success. When you understand what type of approach to leadership you use, you can then work on improving your communication. Participants learn how to provide resources, environments, and opportunities that support clarity in communication. Participants discuss feedback and review findings from their 360 assessment.
  • The Role of the Manager as a Coach (Oct. 5) - For leaders who are accustomed to tackling performance problems by telling people what to do, coaching is not as easy as you think. Coaching empowers your team, fosters accountability, and focuses on action. In this session, participants discuss the role of the manager as both a leader and coach in the workplace, and how to better engage team members.
  • Leadership, Self-Care, and Your Future (Oct. 6) - Participants explore the importance of developing a personal leadership plan for themselves and for their futures, explore elements of self-care, and review the resources, environments, and opportunities that support their long-term professional growth.

After enrolling, participants must complete the DiSC Leadership Styles Assessment. Through the training, participants will

  • Identify their greatest contributions to their workplaces
  • Understand what motivates and energizes them at work
  • Learn tools for improving their team’s motivation and accountability
  • Identify stressors, and develop an understanding of how to better respond to conflict
