For 2019 we are focusing on Reality. The Reality-Based Philosophy, developed by Cy Wakeman, is an excellent asset for all those individuals who struggle to get the best out of themselves. It helps you focus on those things you can improve.
After decades of consulting to leaders around the world, speaking to hundreds of thousands of frustrated leaders, Cy Wakeman has developed a philosophy to ditch the drama, restore sanity to the workplace, and turn excuses into results. Reality-thinking is also a great way to relieve stress, coach others, and be creative. Most of us are no more than a few courageous decisions away from extraordinary success, and the first is the decision to stop holding on to strategies that are no longer producing results for you.
Whether you’re just beginning your career, or you’re an experienced leader, join the Beacon Academy classes and start your journey of self-growth. As always, you’ll leave our courses with practical takeaways to directly apply in your day to day life at work and at home. We look forward to learning and growing with you!
Beacon Academy developed out of our vision to make Beacon Health System a Career Destination and to serve our 7,000+ associates across the region. Our development curriculum helps to ensure that we have the Right Talent with the Right Skills ready at the Right Time. In addition, our curriculum expands beyond leadership development and into culture development to support our Great Workplace initiatives. We are proud to be recognized as one of the most progressive development- focused organizations in the region.
Our curriculum is developed to be “nimble and flexible”. We release our courses on a quarterly basis to allow us the ability to develop and deliver what is most important to our associates and leaders and ensure we deliver the Right Learning at the Right Time, aligned to the strategic imperatives and activities that are most critical during the “next 90 days”.
All of our course participants benefit from our infusion of Innovation into everything we do at Beacon. The ability to generate and implement new ideas and processes differentiates organizations that are leaders in their respective industries; thus, we have integrated Innovation methods into many of our courses. Do you have a performance improvement need that could benefit from new ideas? Contact us to determine how we can be a resource for you.
We understand that balancing the needs of one’s job can sometimes make attendance at classroom-based training difficult. Beacon Academy Online provides self-directed, on-demand, online learning modules. The courses align to the HealthcareSource Staff and Leadership Assessment competencies and are a perfect complement and “next step” in aligning assessment results with targeted competency development. These online courses provide the opportunity for you to focus on targeted development activities at your own convenience.
