​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​2020 LEAD Academy & Advanced LEAD Academy Registration Open

We are currently taking registrations for Spring 2020 Lead Academy sessions in Mt. Vernon and Moses Lake.  Advanced LEAD Academy is currently offered in Moses Lake only. 

To register, please select the session you want on the right hand side of your screen.

​LEAD Academy

​In healthcare, as in other industries, people promoted to management positions are typically technically proficient, but often lack management experience or training.  This popular and highly interactive, cohort-based program is taught by an executive coach and runs one day a month for six months.  It provides a safe environment to learn and practice new skills while learning how to align work goals to support the broader vision of your organization. Designed for health care supervisors and managers, LEAD is built on the underlying principle that effective leadership requires productive relationships to support excellence in patient care, sustainable business objectives and a safe patient environment.

ACADEMY OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of the LEAD Academy, participating health care managers will be able to:
  • Improve the performance of the people and groups that report to them
  • Enhance their contribution to the achievement of facility and System objectives
  • Increase their own self management skills during everyday and stressful situations​

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT LEAD?
"I have gained so much confidence with this course.  I really appreciated that each class built on the next.  I learned so much that I am either applying or plan to apply."

"I liked the fact that today's subject matter made we want to be better.  It was inspiring."

"This was a great session with Pam! She has a great amount of education, material, examples, and stories and I appreciate how every workshop comes with tools to take home. Well worth my time. "

"Nice mix of reading, writing, discussion to keep us all engaged.​  The facilitators are energetic, engaging, and good at explaining lessons."

"I like to hear what everyone else had to say and the way different people handle different situations."

"I thought the tools that were given were excellent in helping to become a better leader."

COST
The total cost for the 6-day, 12-module program is $1,975. This includes breakfast and lunch each day, course materials, and a DISC assessment, as well as follow-up tools and a certificate of completion for each module. You also have the option of registering individually for each 2- module, day-long session.
