Area professionals among graduates

Published 9/7/2013 in Business : Business

The Kansas Hospital Association Leadership Institute graduated its 12th class of 32 students on Aug. 23 at the Critical Issues Summit in Wichita. Students, including Alan Ashinhurst of St. Catherine Hospital, Tina Pendergraft, RN Satanta District Hospital, Clinics LTCU and Teresa Clark, RN Wichita County Health Center, were nominated by their hospital's CEO to be part of this select group.

The 2013 Leadership Institute class was diverse, representing a wide geographic distribution of hospitals from St. Francis to Leavenworth and Parsons to Liberal. Students had been working in health care for as little as one year to more than 20 years. Several students have been in management positions for more than 10 years while others were brand new to management positions.

The curriculum was structured to enhance each student's leadership abilities. Course 1 focused on explaining the difference between leadership and management, identifying organizational values and creating a positive organizational climate. Course 2 focused on enhancing communication skills and examining ethics. Course 3 focused on team building, including how to lead a team and how to be part of a team. Course 4 examined conflict and how to effectively manage it. Courses 5 and 6 were at the KHA Critical Issues Summit. Students learned about governance and the challenges facing health care in the future.
