Fearless in the Face of Crisis

Over five webinars we will walk attendees through the 5 principles and the 30 behaviors that support exemplary leadership. And this is all tried and true, research-based information. 40 years of research has already shown us what makes great leaders, great. We want to make this information easy for attendees to translate into action.

We want them to take this challenging time and turn it into an opportunity to stretch their skills to be their best, most fearless and exemplary, leader possible. We believe in them and we want them to believe in themselves!

All attendees will learn simple, daily actions, that take no more than five minutes, that can impact their organization immediately and make leading through this time of crisis a bit more manageable.

Learning Objectives

  • Participate in simple, daily exercises that can be implemented immediately within their communities.
  • Recognize the importance of praise and appreciation in recruiting and retaining staff during this pandemic and afterwards.
  • Create a culture where positivity and hope is encouraged by leaders.

Collaboration Helps Attendees Act on What They Learn:

The interactive online community tool application, Basecamp, will provide learning as well as support, accountability and sustainability. We will collaborate throughout the series in this private online group.  What does collaboration look like?

  • Help you stop thinking and start you doing! Act on the goals you set.
  • Share practical, actionable tips and resources with you, every other Monday, to support retention in your organization.
  • Get you unstuck! The Drive team, and fellow participants, can answer your questions between sessions.
  • Find a helpful resource on leadership? Share it with the group! We’ll share ideas, best practices and resources on Basecamp.
  • Develop you continually as a leader and push you forward on your personal goals with self-reflective questions.

Testimonials from former webinar series participants!

“First off, this has been one of the best series I’ve been a part of participating in. We aren’t just all in agreement there’s a problem we are working together with solutions on solving those problems. We have talked about internal and external problems. Working as a team and building a team, making sure everyone is on the same sheet of music, and how to build that.” 

~ Richard from Indiana

 “The recruitment and retention of employees in healthcare has become increasingly more challenging and this helps give real life tips and the supporting tools are super easy to implement.  This program gives us HOPE and sometimes that is what we need most!  It has really sparked some conversation at our organization and I am looking forward to future sessions.”   

~ Amy from Wisconsin

“It got our entire team on the same page to make decreasing our turnover a priority, showed everyone the role they play within that, and gave us a chance to set realistic and achievable goals to address it. I think this series was definitely worth the investment. It’s great to hear what other people are doing and share ideas together, and also know that you are not alone in the issues you face.” 

~ Ann from Illinois

“You made it all sound so easy, ideas were racing in my head. I organized them, showed my boss how we could implement the customer service video and it took off! Thank you for caring about those who care so much for others, you made a difference in me, and I passed it on at our facility! I learned if I’m enthusiastic, and it comes from the heart, they will participate and stay to be part of it!”

~ Sheila from Wisconsin

 “We have used several of your ideas from the series.  The one that we have had great success with is having a family member and a resident both speak in orientation to our new employees.  It is very well received.  One new employee expressed that she could tell the staff really cared about the residents from their stories.  She stated “I have already texted my friend and told her this is a great place to work!”  She had not even left the conference room at that point!“
