Seniors Care – This month in the academy


This Month in the Academy

Being the Inspiring Leader you know you can be in Seniors Care.

If you didn’t know it already–as a manager in Seniors Care, you have a big impact on whether direct care staff stayYour attitude significantly influences your employee’s levels of engagement and commitment to you as an employer. 

Leaders who coach more than they tell or do-it-myself-because-it’s-faster-and-I-know-it’s-done-right make that positive difference. 

This isn’t Mary Ellen’s opinion, this comes from tons of studies done specifically in the Seniors Care sector. And the notion of making your residents into real people for your staff may sound weird. But with the heavy workload and long to-do lists it’s understandable to slip into a task-focus vs people-focus. When you make your residents real, instead of a body to be washed, a real human connection can be made.

And it starts with you … seeing your staff as naturally creative, resourceful and wise.

Seem like too much of a stretch when you’re running at mach-5 with your hair on fire? Absolutely. And when you coach more consistently, you may catch yourself moving a little slower, getting more done, and leading staff who have compassion for residents and each other. Seem like a dream? Doesn’t have to be.
