Healthcare Solutions

Healthcare is one of the most demanding cultures to work in. Professionals are expected to provide compassionate care in a hectic, constantly changing environment. Not to mention being plagued with long hours, working short-staffed, and high turnover.

In a field where people often feel overworked, under-appreciated, and are longing for a sense of pride in their work, Inspiring Solutions has brought a refreshing focus to hundreds of healthcare organizations over the past 30 years.

We achieve this through strategic planning, intentional leadership development, dynamic keynote presentations, engaging learning opportunities, individual and team assessments, motivational webinars and practical coaching and consulting.

Since 2005, Michele Matt, CSP has been the lead healthcare consultant for implementing and hardwiring a 3-year Service Excellence Initiative™ with 46 hospital clients. She also designed and delivered a customized leadership development series for the Hospital Corporation of America.

Resolving Difficult Situations in the Workplace

Are you working with, serving, or even living with someone who has a bad attitude? Like the cliché “One bad apple spoils the whole bunch”, one person with a bad attitude can have a negative impact on the entire team! Just being around someone who complains, whines, or just doesn’t do or say anything can cause people to feel frustrated, angry, or even helpless. In fact, studies show that 68% of people (employees and patients) quit or leave a company because of one employee’s bad attitude. Bad attitudes in the workplace can deteriorate morale, lower productivity, and increase costs. It doesn’t take much for a co-worker, manager, or patient to feel the negative effects from someone with a bad attitude.

To manage conflict more effectively and create a quality environment, people have to be willing to understand why conflict occurs and demonstrate a variety of strategies for dealing with different people.

Emotional Intelligence
Why It Matters in Healthcare

Thriving in today’s healthcare setting requires professionals to have strong emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills.

A recent Gallup Poll survey sited U.S. executives consistently spend 39% of their time strategic thinking and planning.

To help with the successful implementation of the plan, quarterly reviews are held to discuss progress and results made on achieving the organization’s goals.
