If you're like most leaders in healthcare, you've noticed...

  • Disruptive behaviors are on the rise
  • There’s infighting among teams
  • Your time and energy are being wasted dealing with unprofessional conduct

When teams don’t treat each other with respect as professionals, good employees leave, and the disruptive ones stay.

If you’ve ever said, why can’t my employees behave like adult professionals, it’s because there is a fundamental mistake you’ve been making.

You’re assuming professionals know how to behave.

Here’s the deal - You can’t assume professionals know how to treat each other. You have to teach them.  

If you want to create and sustain a professional and respectful workforce culture, you must engage in ongoing skill development as a team. The good news is that just by including ongoing skill development into your existing meetings, in-services, or huddles, you can finally experience what other successful leaders experience – leading a high performing, respectful, and cohesive team.

We know what it’s like to spend too much time and energy dealing with unprofessional conduct. 

As a leader, you have more important work to do. 

Hi. My name is Dr. Renee Thompson. I’m the CEO & Founder of the HWI. We’re on a mission to create a world where disruptive behaviors are immediately rejected and kindness, respect, and professionalism become the new norm.

My team and I have been helping healthcare teams across the country cultivate and sustain a professional, respectful, and supportive workforce culture. One of our best strategies is to hardwire ongoing continuous professional development as a team by incorporating healthy workforce topics into monthly meetings or educational sessions.

But…what do you include? How do you deliver content in a way that helps them improve, especially if you’re not an educator?

Well, you don’t have to worry about that because we’ve done the hard work for you!

Welcome to our Skill Development for Healthcare Teams. In this eProduct, you’ll receive everything you need to hardwire ongoing professional development so that your teams learn how to treat each other with respect, hold each other accountable, stop the gossip, infighting, he-said/she-said shenanigans, etc…and show up like professionals.

We’ve made it ridiculously easy for you to teach your teams how to treat each other!

Why this matters...

I’ve been sharing monthly themed content with my consulting clients who LOVE how easy we make it for them to include content related to healthy workforce into their staff meetings. So, we decided to make it available to every leader who wants to create a PROFESSIONAL and RESPECTFUL workforce culture.

In each packet, you’ll find…

  • Instructions
  • An easy-to-read article
  • A tip sheet or resource
  • An activity you can use as a self-reflection or during a team meeting
  • Memes you can post as reminders
  • And finally, an extra video tips with a few goodies on how to best utilize the content for maximum impact!

• • •

Our 12 Month Package is perfectly put together to give you the content you need to help your team develop the skills they need to become strong, cohesive, respectful, and professional.

Remember, cultivating a professional and respectful workforce culture is possible WHEN you develop your teams.

"We are absolutely thrilled with the Monthly Education Subscription and “How To” activities to share with staff. What is always so unique about the education and management strategies is that while grounded in theory- they are hands-on and easy to implement. This is critical in a very time-sensitive and fiscally challenged industry such as healthcare."

- Katherine Mansfield, RN, CGN, MN | Manager of Trauma | St. Michaels Hospital

  • Do I have to deliver the content in the order listed?

    No. You can pick and choose which topic is the priority for your team. However, we recommend that you always start with #1 – Developing Assertive Communication Skills. Then you can pick and choose which topics are most needed. For example, you may be having an issue with conflict (#11). So, you may want to start with Assertive Communication your first month and then Conflict the second month. Because you have all 12 months’ worth of content, you can pick and choose what works best for you!

  • How long do I have access to this product?

    1 Year

  • Do I have to finish a topic in a month, or can I take longer?

    Look, we get it. Everyone is busy and because there is a lot of content in each month’s package, you may not get through it all in one month. It’s okay!! Just start with one topic - go through the articles, activities, etc. until you’re finished. Then start the next topic. As long as you are continuously engaging your teams in this powerful skill development, it’s okay to take your time!

  • I’m an educator and not the leader of a department, how will this product benefit me?

    I worked as an educator too (actually, I still consider myself an educator) and a lot of my time and energy was spent creating content for in-services, residency programs, orientation, preceptor programs, etc. I WISH I would have had 12-months’ worth of content I could pick and choose from! If I were you, I would incorporate this content into any existing programs you have.

  • I’m the manager of a large department. How can I be expected to “teach” this content to my team if I’m not an educator?

    Great question! We actually designed this product with YOU in mind! Well, someone who isn’t an educator. The instructions are so simple to follow that you don’t need a master’s degree in education to deliver the content. All you need is a willingness to read and follow instructions.
