Add to Calendar 09/23/2017 08:00 AM 09/23/2017 03:00 PM America/New_York FACILITATION BOOTCAMP FOR HEALTHCARE STRATEGISTS

Participate in focused learning programs designed specifically to develop key skills identified in SHSMD’s Bridging Worlds: The Future Role of the Healthcare Strategist. Those who successfully complete these programs will receive a SHSMD ADVANCE™ | Credential and official SHSMD digital badge.

In the rapidly changing landscape of healthcare—where change is omnipresent, collaboration is essential, and open dialogue is critical—your ability to facilitate important discussions has never been more crucial. Whether you are trying to lead a group in dialogue, get people to come to consensus, forge a change, problem solve, plan, brainstorm, or simply align goals and objectives—strong facilitation skills are key to success. Facilitation is the ability to engage a group of people to understand their common objectives and help them to plan how to achieve these objectives while remaining “neutral” yet supportive. Facilitation is a key skill identified in SHSMD’s Bridging Worlds: The Future Role of the Healthcare Strategist.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this one-day session you will discover how to:

  • Run effective meetings or discussion forums where goals are met and decisions are made
  • Manage difficult or challenging participants
  • Listen effectively
  • Deploy brainstorming tools
  • Incorporate decision-making criteria
  • Achieve consensus
  • Engage your audience and encourage participation
  • Resolve conflict
  • Be assertive and “control” the environment
  • Negotiate on the fly

Participants will have multiple opportunities to practice what they are learning so that they are comfortable and confident in deploying their new skill set when the next opportunity arrives.
