Toxicity in the Workplace

Speaker: Melissa Tompkins

Many hospital team members work in a toxic environment. In this presentation, I talk about how to recognize a toxic environment, what type of effects a toxic environment has on team members, and what both team members and leaders can do to help change them. I also discuss what things can lead to a toxic environment and how each person can influence the toxicity and make it better.

Something to Talk About: A New Era for Workplace Wellbeing

Speaker: Jen Brandt

Awareness of distress among healthcare professionals and efforts to improve their wellbeing have evolved significantly over the last several years. This awareness has been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic and greater acknowledgement that employee wellbeing is influenced not just by individual factors, but also the workplace environment. The development of efforts to support healthcare professional mental health and wellbeing has evolved through several phases with increasing focus on employee recruitment and retention and creating workplaces that help support and maintain “lives worth living.”

Are you creating your own drama? Do you worry about things that have not happened yet?

Speaker: Melissa Tompkins

This presentation focuses on the drama that we self-create by making things up in our mind or making assumptions about why/what others are doing.  Many times, people worry about things that have not happened by reacting to them like they did.  This cause’s undue stress on team members and in many cases can cause a large amount of drama in the hospital.  This presentation helps people understand why we “make stuff up in our minds” and how we can stop doing it.

What the #$?! is my manager thinking?

Speaker: Rhonda Bell

This session will look at very common team and client experiences in the practice that often lead to conflict, miscommunication, or a negative emotional environment. We’ve all been there, you walk in the door, and you can feel the vibe in the practice, and It’s not good. Or the vibe changes when YOU walk in, and you don’t know why. It’s time for a truth bomb for you when dealing with team members
