Includes a Live Event on 01/05/2021 at 6:00 PM (PST)

January 5, 2020; 6:00 – 8:00 PM

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? We will examine how the structure and functions (and dysfunctions) of teams affect the outcomes we can accomplish. 

Learning Objectives
  • Collaborate more effectively with HR colleagues. 
  • Recognize and deal with toxic behavior.
  • Manage reports more effectively. Be more effective followers.
  • Take better advantage of supervisors.
