How to Create a Culture of Excellence from the Top Down
Dec 13 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

More information

Changing organizational culture happens slowly.  It begins with creating new experiences and routines that are vital to improved performance and new attitudes.  This ultimately leads to a better culture that affects all aspects of an organization’s business.  Leadership plays a crucial role in the change process because they create the vision for cultural change, establish the rules and structure, model the attitudes and behaviors, and build the support systems.  This webinar will provide various models, tools, and innovative insights to enact this change.  Creating a culture of excellence will improve employee morale and retention, patient experience, star ratings, financial bottom-line, and the community’s experience.
