Healthcare facility administrators who have to achieve results using fewer resources understand the important role that staff productivity, job satisfaction, and motivation play in getting work done. Teams are made up of individuals who have different but complementary skills. All team members hold themselves mutually accountable for working towards a common purpose, reaching predetermined performance objectives, and improving interdependent work processes. Taking a team approach to management lets administrators leverage the power of teamwork while keeping their workers happy and motivated. In order for administrators to make teams an effective part of their organization, they need to better understand some characteristics of how teams work. This course discusses the stages of team development, the impact that norms, cohesiveness, and size has on teams, and how to deal with team conflict.

For most working adults, days are filled with multiple tasks and deadlines. This is especially true in healthcare as you have to do all your work while also considering the needs of those in your care. Chances are you have more things you want to do than you have time to do them. You can’t “find more time”, but you can do a better job of deciding what to spend your time on. Goal setting lets you choose how you want to spend your time, and when you set and then meet a goal, you feel satisfied and accomplished. This course discusses how to better manage time by setting goals for both your personal and professional life.
