AMDA's 2019 Annual Conference

TH5 - Understanding Nursing Home Organizational Behavior for Effective Leadership as a Medical Director

Mar 7, 2019 8:00am ‐ Mar 7, 2019 11:30am


In 1905, Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” A true leader understands his team and his processes and isn’t afraid of “out-of-the-box thinking.” Understanding organizational behavior helps medical directors understand their own core beliefs and values, and use their political and social capital to transform an ordinary organization into a highly efficient and successful one. During these 3.5 hours we will use interactive, lecture, small group case-based problem solving, and role-play methods to help attendees improve their management and leadership skills.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe organizational behavior and why it's important for effective medical directorship.
  • Explain how individual values, attitudes, and emotions effect leadership performance.
  • Discuss groups and teams and how working with others can increase everybody’s performance.
  • Describe organizational culture, socialization, and mentoring and how to use these concepts for a competitive edge.
