Private: WSHA (Washington State Hospital Association) 2020 LEAD Academy
Spring 2020 LEAD Academy sessions in Mount Vernon and Moses Lake are currently open. This program is offered 1 day per month for 6 months in Mt. Vernon and Moses Lake and the cost is $1,975 per person.
In healthcare, as in other industries, people promoted to management positions are typically technically proficient, but often lack management experience or training. This popular, comprehensive, 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.
