NCMGMA-NCMSF August 28th Webinar: Team Building and Leadership

ncmgma18-wbnrhdr600a

Lunch & Learn Webinar:
Team Building and Leadership

Tuesday, August 28, 2018
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Working in teams has been shown to improve organizational effectiveness and increase employee engagement and motivation. But what makes a team successful and how do you, as a leader, build those teams? In health care, a good team means all members understand, believe in and work towards the shared purpose of caring and working for patients, whether as a clinician or non-clinician. Because strong teams do not develop and evolve by themselves, leadership is crucial to their success.

In this webinar we will talk about some core team characteristics and how all teams move through different stages of development. Teams are at their most productive where there is openness and trust, with members working to their own strengths. But how do they get there?
