  • Increase Capacity Using Your Existing Beds and Staff

    Managing inpatient capacity is one of the
    most critical challenges for health systems. It
    requires a daily balancing act of coordinating

    staffing needs in unison to ensure optimal
    patient care and collaboration across care
    teams to ensure timely discharges and make
    room for new patient admissions.

  • Building Your Executive Presence

    What is Executive Presence?
    Executive presence is a crucial aspect of career advancement, as it reflects a leader's ability to communicate effectively, inspire confidence, and project a professional image.

  • Career Action Plan

    What is a Career Action Plan?
    A career action plan is a roadmap for advancing your career. The most important part of your
    plan should be to keep track of your professional accomplishments. This record of your work success is essential for many reasons including your performance reviews, asking for a raise, updating your resume, speaking about the work you do, and for personal validation. Consider it accumulating key data that you can deploy when you encounter an unfavorable review, when you ask for a raise, or when you are looking for a new job. It is easy to let your accomplishments get lost in the day-to-day grind. Most people check things off their to-do list and then move on to the next item. Months can go by like this making it feel like nothing important has been accomplished. If instead, you actively keep track of your successes, you will see that you have achieved more than you thought.
