Target Audience: Healthcare managers, leaders and supervisors, both experienced and new in their role
In a world that can value task performance over relationship building, it is vital to slow down and invest in the staff that we work with on a daily basis. How you approach inquiry affects your relationships, your ability to get work completed, and ultimately your success as a leader. By asking the right questions, at the right time, you can empower your staff to make appropriate choices independently while building trust and allowing your employees to feel valued and respected.
Participants will learn to:
- Identify and explain the core principles of Humble Inquiry
- Recognize the value of vulnerability and why it is important in relationship building
- Establish trust with those they work with
- Identify ways to improve active listening
- Describe the difference between behaviors and judgments
- Explain the use of open ended questions and reflective listening
Consider taking this workshop if the following are mostly true for you:
- As a manager you feel that your employees “dump” their problems on you
- You don’t feel like your leadership is really making a difference
- You crave true connections with those you work with and/or supervise
- You are flat out tired of telling your staff exactly what to do, and when to do it
