Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Learn how to build leadership skills in council representatives by developing and utilizing facilitators. A Facilitators Workshop offers both professional development and opportunities to participate in organizational performance improvement. ABSTRACT: Collaborative governance (CG) provides an excellent forum for professionals to come together to self-govern practice and raise the standard of care delivery. Yet, work groups can be either ineffective or disheartened in creating long-term sustainable change when they are not equipped with knowledge, skills, and resources. As part of our nursing department's commitment to professional autonomy and leadership, each council is chartered and resourced to have a facilitator who promotes the learning of leadership, team building, change strategy, and performance improvement. As council member skills and team development progress, there is an expectation that all members of councils are leading, teaching and contributing to the development of their colleagues, within and outside the council. To support the development of council facilitators, a Facilitators Workshop was created for those interested in being a facilitator or in developing their leadership skills. The workshop is offered as a 3 part series, designed to incorporate theory, application and innovative strategies for organizational issues. Objectives and content include project definition, building the team, meeting effectiveness, change process, performance improvement and effective interpersonal relationships. Teaching of these concepts is weaved into participants working on a real organizational issue, the ôprojectö. As a work group, real group challenges surface, are identified and are strategized by all participants. With this interactive and integrative approach, participants learn and practice facilitation skills while also contributing to organizational performance improvement - all at the same time! The Facilitators Workshop is taught by two expert nurse facilitators. Recommendations from workshop participants for improvement on organizational issues are forwarded to our CG coordinating council for implementation and evaluation. The outcomes of the workshop to promote the learning of leadership, team building, change strategy, and performance improvement have been repeatedly achieved as validated through council agenda planning, meetings, workgroup activities and succession planning. We are proud of our ability to develop leadership skills, support effective professional autonomy and decision-making and accomplish performance improvement all at the very same time and would be delighted to share our strategies with an interactive "practicum" experience at the conference.
