Hospitals face difficult transitions every time a leader departs; maintaining momentum, restoring trust with the board, physicians and staff, financial turnarounds, and more. The right interim leader – at the right time – can provide the expertise and guidance to steer the hospital through difficult straits, often providing the right combination of new strength and leadership for rapid financial or operational turnarounds (or even just a cultural change) when it would be tough for an incumbent to make the necessary changes. While transitions can be somewhat scary, the right interim can ease the fears of the hospital and the community just by having a “seasoned” pro ready to step in when you need expert help.
Upon completion of the webinar, participants will understand:
- What the right interim can mean for your organization
- How s/he can provide unbiased continuity and stability for the institution and its staff and do the sometimes necessary “heavy lifting”
- How to define what the right interim leader looks like – traits, skills, and fit
