LINCOLN, Nebraska -- In its commitment to strengthen and promote the leadership skills of Nebraska hospital employees, the Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) is pleased to announce Class X of the NHA Leadership Institute. This exclusive 10-month program will enhance a participant's ability to lead in the rapidly changing and diverse health care industry by providing professional education that enhances the skills needed to facilitate positive change and innovation in Nebraska hospitals. This year's theme, "Strategic Leadership," will offer participants the opportunity to learn the strategic and tactics needed to position themselves as leaders to achieve victory and success in a challenging and ever-changing health care landscape.

Sponsored by LaMair-Mulock-Condon, the Institute provides current and up--and-coming leaders within their organizations with the necessary skills to become exceptional leaders. Class X's 26 participants will improve their leadership skills and enhance their effectiveness in the health care field, while preserving the care and compassion critical to quality health care delivery -- ultimately augmenting their contributions to their organizations. This initiative includes a comprehensive curriculum, combining core leadership competency working sessions with multiple layers of applied practice in health care. The curriculum is designed to be highly interactive with flexible online and teleconference accessibility -- perfect for busy health care personnel.

Facilitated by faculty from Bellevue University, the NHA Leadership Institute delivers focused curriculum that explores human motivation, leadership styles and personality traits, team dynamics, coaching, conflict resolution and succession management, as well as many other contemporary leadership issues. The format provides the flexibility and opportunity to interact with other Nebraska health care professionals.

"The health care industry clearly faces increased regulation and shortages in skilled workforce positions," said NHA vice president of educational Services Jon Borton. "The next generation of leaders must possess the sophisticated skills needed to match the industry's challenges and opportunities."
