Organizational communication: Temperament
Our communication program is about understanding yourself and others through the knowledge and application of temperament and interaction styles. It is based on the premise that people are different and successful working relationships are based on self-awareness, trust and perspective shifting.
Living Leadership is based on the philosophy that leadership is a learned skill and is a transformational strategy that teaches how to create an environment where people can learn, grow and behave as responsible adults.
Clinical Skills Development
We continually strive for evidence-based best practices to enhance the care of our patients. Staff are supported in developing and maintaining clinical skill sets from onboarding, to regulatory courses, to skills fairs, etc.
