Sexuality in Long Term Care: Open Your Mind (And Close the Door, Please) Webinar  
Thursday, July 12, 2018 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

What is sexuality and why is it so seldom spoken of when talking about older adults, particularly those in LTC?  This session explores perspectives of residents, staff, and family members related to sexuality and intimacy.  Through group discussion/short case studies, it helps staff consider their views, identify barriers, and facilitate solutions and strategies when sexual expression becomes problematic.  Strategies for meeting resident sexuality needs without intercourse are explored.  Sexuality and intimacy as these relate to dementia, issues with consent, problematic behaviors, and the dilemma of “adultery” are addressed.  Finally, concepts important for guiding policy and procedure development are reviewed.

Energized Employees: Thank Goodness It's Monday! E-Series Webinar  
Thursday, October 25, 2018 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Organizational culture is the glue that holds teams together. It’s what motivates employees to overcome challenges or succumb to them. It’s the reason why employees want to, or don’t want to, get out of bed to go to work in the morning. When an organization purposefully creates a culture that focuses on its greatest asset, its employees, the result can be a deeply engaged, hardworking, workforce that is passionate about the work that they do each day.  Imagine employees exclaiming at the beginning of the week, “Thank Goodness it’s Monday!” as they excitedly show up to contribute their gifts to the organization’s goals.

Exceeding Employee Expectations: Building a Coaching Relationships E-Series Webinar  
Tuesday, May 14, 2019 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Leaders must recognize the importance of developing deeper relationships with their team members, including ongoing, regularly scheduled coaching conversations.  Coaching is an effective way to set expectations, discuss goals, create plans that drive results, as well as, overcome challenges.  Coaching conversations are for focusing on strengths and are as important for your “A” players as they are for your struggling team members.  When you develop a coaching relationship with each person, honest feedback is easier and praise is shared more freely.
