Thanks for your interest in Beacon Academy!
Whether you’re just beginning your career, or you’re an experienced leader, Beacon Academy’s curriculum will help you achieve your fullest potential while also aligning to our Great Workplace strategy. Investing in yourself provides practical takeaways that apply directly to your day-to-day life at work and at home.
The healthcare environment continues to change at a rapid pace that requires our response to be flexible and ready. Not only must we continue to evolve our own skills, we must ensure that we are developing them with purpose.
In 2020, Beacon Academy offers a mix of new and enhanced curriculum that supports this purpose by aligning to the following content areas:
Everybody Matters – ensuring we feel valued at all levels of the organization
Hiring Successfully – building great teams that last
Great Beacon Leader – defining the key attributes of a “Great Beacon Leader”
Accountability – developing and sustaining a culture of accountability
Communication – creating successful interactions through all circumstances
Leading Change – moving efficiently and effectively through the reality of change
Specific courses for these content areas will be developed aligned to Beacon’s development framework:
- Lead Yourself – courses that focus specifically on individual development
- Lead Others – courses that build the skills to lead a team or multiple teams
- Lead the Organization – courses that develop skills that have an impact on an organizational (Beacon) level
Making Beacon a Career Destination and a Great Workplace
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.
Leadership development isn’t just refining “soft skills”, changing leadership mindsets, and focusing on being a Great Workplace. Nor is it as simple as enhancing associate engagement and managerial effectiveness. Granted, these are things we focus our curriculum around, however, it’s the application of key learnings, utilization of tools, and new skills that translate into your day-to-day role as a leader.
Whether your core areas of focus involve one or several of Beacon’s strategic initiatives of Clinical Excellence, Great Workplace, Customer Driven Culture, Smart Growth, and Financial Stability– our curriculum has been developed specifically to help you lead through and achieve your most significant objectives.
Balancing the needs of your job can sometimes make attendance at classroom-based training difficult. We understand. Beacon Academy Online provides self-directed, on-demand, online learning modules that have been selected to meet the most common topics requested by Beacon leaders.
We are excited to introduce our new facilitator-led Beacon Academy Webinar Series training sessions for select courses- providing the opportunity to engage live with Beacon Academy facilitators and other leaders across the system without leaving your office.
