Healthcare therapists may often see the rehab department director position as a great opportunity for advancing their career, but the full expectations of the job could also be overwhelming.
This course offers research based evidence and practical applications to equip therapists with effective leadership tools to help optimize their success in the rehab director role. The resources shared may assist therapists in a variety of leadership department positions, from the director over a large interdisciplinary team to a champion who has been asked to lead a new clinical program. It is important that the therapist be equipped with information and strategies useful to grow and develop in the roles and opportunities which may be presented. Participants in this course are offered working tools to range from keys to team member engagement to the Tuckman’s sequence of storming and forming for team building.
