The Nursing Facilities Initiative Executive Leadership Development Series for Administrators
Activating Leadership at Every Level of Your Organization

Due to the content and investment related to Phase II, Leadership Development Series will be limited to Group B (original 23 homes) Administrators, Corporate Representatives and Owners, Administrators in Training within the nursing facility and NFI State Stakeholders.

Session 3
Making Progress on Staff Stability
There is no perfect answer to the persistent challenge of staff stability in nursing homes. However, there are strategies and tactics that tend to work more effectively than others. This session will intentionally tap the wisdom of the learning cohort to harvest successful strategies and examine why they worked. Participants will be encouraged to design short, PDSA projects to test the ideas surfaced in this session.
Key topics include:

Harvesting the “bright spots” (initiatives that tend to work)
Examine the systemic reasons behind successful initiatives
Designing and testing new staff stability prototypes (PDSA projects)
Peer learning group reflection

Learning Objectives
The purpose of this program is to equip the Nursing Home Administrators with skills that will enable them to improve and sustain a high level of organizational performance by creating structures of distributed leadership committed to improving quality, regulatory compliance, staff stability, resident satisfaction, and financial performance in a value-based healthcare delivery system. Participants will focus on creating and sustaining strong, cross-functional QAPI and work teams purposed towards a common goal. This program also aims to offer the administrator an opportunity to experiment with new approaches to current leadership challenges using a data-driven PDSA-cycle framework, peer coaching and the sharing of best-practices.

Program Methods
We will employ several learning technologies to create a robust learning environment.
• Experiential Learning: Participants will learn new leadership skills by having the chance to try them during the learning session. These experiences will allow leaders to gain new knowledge through hands-on practice in low-risk environments.
• Peer Learning Groups: Structured, facilitated peer learning groups will be formed to openly discuss leadership challenges common to the Nursing Home Administrator.
• Real-Time Evaluation: Participatory evaluation that is intended to provide immediate feedback during learning sessions workshops. This type of evaluation provides instant input to our program design and can help us adjust to increase the effectiveness of the training.
