Leaders Facilitating Change Workshop
A critical competency for all healthcare leaders in today’s environment is change management. Leading, supporting, engaging in, championing and driving change is what health care leaders are faced with daily. A formal approach to change management and training is often times missing.
Health care professionals are faced with complex and challenging situations every day, which can create a barrier to change. In fact, as many as 1.98 million people say they don’t have the tools and training to help their organizations achieve zero harm, and 21 percent say their role is too small to have an impact that big. So what steps can health care leaders take to create effective change within their organizations?
Facilitating Change® is The Center for Transforming Healthcare’s model to performance improvement in patient safety and healthcare quality for healthcare organizations. In this two-day workshop, you will learn how incorporating formal change management processes can provide your leadership team with important tools needed to achieve strategic and operational goals and tackle complex, multifactorial issues in today’s changing health care environment.
In addition to the two-day workshop, we will also provide two (2) complimentary one-hour follow-up webinars.
During these follow up webinars, participants will be able to share how they have used the tools post training and discuss opportunities to incorporate additional change management tools in their current change initiatives with the Master Change Leader trainer.

“The course offered by The Center for Transforming Healthcare proved to be an excellent starting point for our senior leaders to learn how they can use tools and techniques in their daily work to build buy-in and engagement, overcome resistance, and sustain gains needed for successful change. Two days of participatory learning and training kept a diverse cross section of our leaders engaged and The Center facilitators for the training maximized the benefit for our leaders. Highly recommended.”
