Program Description:

As healthcare leaders, our plates are full! Yet there are times we leave our work feeling empty, hungry for something different. We need sustenance to fill our own void, while gaining the energy needed to effectively fill the cups of others. Join us each month to rediscover the ingredients for success one bite at a time. In just 45 minutes, you will feast on leadership knowledge nibbles, network with others over lunch, and juice up on facilitated coaching…leaving each session with something to chew on and renewed vigor for your important work. Each subscription gives you a twelve-month banquet of rejuvenation!

Target Audience:

Healthcare Supervisors and Managers, both experienced and new in their role

Food for Thought: Do Any of These Sound Familiar?
  • You pour so much of yourself into your work that you feel depleted.
  • You struggle to proactively lead the culture of your team.
  • There is struggle to make changes and try something new. (It’s the same “meal” day after day.)
  • Staff surveys suggest they want their input considered more but when you ask for their feedback, you hear crickets chirping (No one tells you what they want for supper but then complain about what’s served)
  • You know you need a plan but who has time to create one? (Going to the grocery store without getting what you need.)
  • The mix keeps separating. Your team cohesiveness just won’t congeal.
  • The work just isn’t fun anymore. (You need more yeast to rise.)
  • Work and life commitments feel out of balance. (Too much flour, not enough egg…)
  • If so, you’re not alone in your hunger. Join our Grub Club each month for recipes of success through learning practical tools and techniques, networking with colleagues with similar needs, and participating in facilitated coaching
