General Session: The 5 Levels of Home care & Hospice Leadership

Session Description:

Great leaders constantly ask, ‘Who could do what I am doing now?’” Every home care and hospice leader and manager is on one of these levels with their organization and the individuals on their team. And the good news is that every leader can move up to a higher level and raise the influence of the organization. While you raise your own level, you can develop a plan to raise and equip your people to take on many responsibilities and authority you have… and allow yourself to both move higher and create a lasting leadership footprint.
Everything rises and falls on leadership; nothing more, nothing less.
