Well- trained managers help organizations retain staff

November 30, 2022

Since management training isn’t included in most professional or clinical education programs, Washington Hospital Services (WHS) has been proud to offer our state’s premium health care management training program – the LEAD Academy – to thousands of hospital employees over the last six years. Set your new managers up for success by making LEAD Academy a part of their leadership development journey. Participants will learn how to manage and resolve interpersonal conflicts and how to have impactful coaching conversations with employees. Visit the LEAD Academy registration page for program details and to sign up for an informational webinar on December 7.

Given workforce shortages right now, hospitals are acutely focused on retaining employees. We all know that employees don’t leave organizations; they leave managers. For this reason, a primary retention strategy should be ensuring hospitals have well-trained managers.
