Team collaboration is essential to maintaining a healthy workplace and delivering high-quality patient care. How can we navigate the dynamics of managing up, across, and down? How do we build productive relationships with toxic colleagues and bosses? What collaborative approaches can we take with our colleagues in HR, finance, marketing, and other departments? We will end with reflections on Part 1 of the course and a look forward to Part 2.
At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:
- Collaborate more effectively with HR and fiscal colleagues.
- Manage reports more effectively. Be, and help others to be, more effective followers.
- Take better advantage of supervisors. Recognize and deal with toxic behavior.
