The HealthcareSource Blog — Best of 2016

Posted by

Over the past 12 months, we’ve offered advice to healthcare recruiters and HR teams, heard from clinical educators and OD professionals, shared customer success stories, commented on the latest industry trends, and hopefully made you smile a time or two. Before we move forward into a new year of blogging about all things healthcare talent management, let’s take a look back at the best of 2016. Visit the HealthcareSource Blog for a recap of this year’s top 10 most popular blog posts based on view count. Enjoy!

Unable to make it to Talent Symposium 2016? No worries, here’s a recap of this year’s HealthcareSource User Conference. If you’re still feeling like you missed out on something big? Fear not: registration is currently open for Talent Symposium 2017 in Chandler, Arizona. Be sure to take advantage of our early-bird attendee discount ($650 if you register before December 31, 2016), so you can be a part of all of the learning, fun, and growth in 2017!

One week from today, Kathy B. Dempsey, President of Keep Shedding! Inc. will take the keynote stage at Talent Symposium 2016 — the annual HealthcareSource User Conference. As a former hospital executive, she strategically led Memorial Health Care System’s organizational development efforts to become one of top 100 hospitals in the country. The fun, interactive session is packed with practical strategies for immediate implementation both on the job and at home.

I believe the only way to address a challenge at work or in life, is to learn everything about the problem, as well as the potential solutions at hand. It takes effort, determination, and commitment to move from a place of stagnation into a position of a continuous learner actively engaged in creating solutions. But while this work shouldn’t be underestimated, often I find that, when it comes down to it, we are only hindered by our own ability to change personal and team habits.

A structured, proactive approach to leadership development in healthcare is an essential hallmark of many organizations across the care continuum. However, many healthcare organizations don’t have a defined process for identifying potential leaders and preparing them to succeed in their new role.
