"We are thrilled to be able to leverage our experience in the leadership field across all industries, including healthcare, and look forward to supporting similar industry changes in the future."

The series kicked off with a webinar featuring a panel Q&A session on the trials and tribulations of implementing a leadership training program in a health system setting, which is now available in an on-demand archive: "Leadership Programs in Healthcare; a Panel Q&A Session." Moderated by Patrick Veroneau, founder of Emery Leadership Group, the webinar featured a discussion between Barbara Monegan, director of talent management and organization development at Christiana Care Health Systems, and Ben Quintana, program manager for leadership development at St. Luke's Health System, on success and program measurement as well as business impact goals related to leadership training.

This week's event, which is part of Skillsoft's popular Conversations in Leadership series, a web-based conversation moderated by Skillsoft's leadership expert Shawn Hunter, is titled "The High Performance Healthcare Team, 7 Requirements for Excellence in Patient Care." Organizational behavior expert and author Nicole Bendaly will define what constitutes a high-performing, patient-focused team, offer guidance on common healthcare leadership challenges, and recommend ways for leaders to affect change at every level of the organization.

To follow, Patrick Veroneau will again host an August 22 webinar featuring Debra Hamilton, program manager, leadership development at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
