Leading Healthcare Teams in Turbulent Times

COVID-19 has been a game-changer in healthcare. The current environment has been described as VUCA: characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. Nurses are stressed and worried about personal safety. Perioperative and interprofessional teamwork is more challenging.  

Bring your department leaders and join us for this highly interactive, half-day, virtual workshop, where we will examine leadership challenges during this time of turbulence and present strategies to promote more effective teamwork and build team resilience.
