Kalli Matsuhashi and Jack Militello will discuss current trends and areas of concern in dealing with abrasive leadership and what a health care organization can do to correct this issue.
This presentation will focus on helping participants understand the serious impact of abrasive leaders in healthcare through the workplace suffering and negative impact on patient care that it can cause. It will help participants understand what drives these bullying behaviors and what can be done about them. The presenter will provide an in-depth look at a research-driven and empirically-supported approach to helping the abrasive leader change his/her behaviors. She will also explain HR’s critical role in keeping the work environment respectful and why putting the burden on subordinates to “manage up” is likely to fail.
