Training Series for Healthcare Managers Starts May 16

The main driver for employee retention is having a great boss. In fact, according to Gallup Management Research, 70% of an employee’s engagement is determined by the employee’s relationship with their direct supervisor.  Most managers have been promoted from staff positions but have never received management training.  When you train managers, everyone wins!

Beginning May 16, Del Gilbert, founder of Accelerating Excellence, will provide clear, practical and engaging content, including exercises and demonstrations for the purpose of skill-building.  This training is available for all SDAHO members and is intended for emerging, new, or experienced managers and leaders.
