"We introduce you to management, leadership, and business tools in five healthcare-relevant management areas.
The lessons are immediately applicable in the daily clinical routine explicitly considering the workload and time constraints of physicians, nurses, and hospital managers."

Why professional management improves not only your medical and financial results but also your personal life

Better medical and economic outcomes through professional hospital management

McKinsey and the London School of Economics and Political Science assessed the correlation between hospitals` management and their economic and medical results*.

The authors developed a management score and measured parameters like return on investment, patient satisfaction, EBITDA, income per bed and the like. The study revealed that hospitals with a superior management score excelled in all quality dimensions.

There was even a significant 6% advantage in the mortality rate of patients after a heart attack in hospitals with better management.

Reducing stress and yielding a better work-life-balance

Besides, our personal experience indicates, that the all-time demanding clinical workload in a hospital can be better mastered with an efficient arsenal of professional management tools.

Less stress in the clinical routine leads to a better work-life-balance.

Consequently, a better work-life-balance should yield a better overall performance of the staff.

Healthcare relevant management areas

The architecture of all our lessons aims to provide content that you can use immediately after the event. As healthcare professionals we know exactly that you need to spend your time wisely. Education is meant to have a significant and measurable impact.

Don`t worry: neither will we use complicated economic language nor will we challenge you with abstract busines theories. In fact, we will break down all business principles and terminology to make you feel very comfortable with using your new skills in your daily work.

Our goal is to get you some real value out of each minute spent in the class.
Tools for strategy development and execution.
Development of an effective leadership style that fits your character.
Focus on improvements that add value. Interprofessional team integration.
Accounting and balancing in hospitals. Business terms translated for healthcare professionals.

Architecture of the executive Coaching

Preparation

Don`t worry: we will not leave you alone with this task, but equip you with tools to run an effective detection of relevant change projects.

Coaching #1

In the first coaching session we will plan, draft, and initiate the measurements introduced in the webinars.

The goal is to create a “ready-to-go” management or leadership project with you.

Implementation

You are now equipped to implement the plan in your hospital.

We recommend initiating a pre-test to gain experience with your new tools and see how everything plays out. First results often indicate helpful adjustments. Only then you go for the main race, which we will assess in our second coaching.

Eventually, we jointly create an evaluation system and look out for measures to ascertain sustainability.
