Visionary Health Solutions Offers Team Building Group Coaching for Hospitals and Non-Medical Companies

September 14, 2010 15:00 by Ann Pace

(From PRWEB) -- Visionary Health Solutions, a New York wellness training and coaching company, announces its newest service of Team Building Group Coaching sessions for leadership, management and employees of hospitals and healthcare organizations, and non-medical small and large businesses. These sessions help large or small groups to improve morale and change their culture to one of cooperation and genuine interest in working together to improve team performance and productivity. This is achieved through building trust, clarifying problems, improving communication, setting goals, and effective problem solving. These sessions are for all personnel and fall under the general service of Visionary Leadership Coaching.

Susan Eisner, MPH, CASAC, President, explains, “We’ve been called in to help groups with problems common in healthcare and other business environments, either by departments directly, or through Human Resources. In one Staten Island hospital, we greatly transformed a group of resident physicians of varying ages and cultures who were not helping each other or appropriately following supervisors’ directions, risking putting patients in danger. In a Brooklyn hospital, we supported the entire Human Resources staff themselves to help them manage particularly stressful work conditions, communicate frustrations with each other, be more effective in handling employee complaints, and increasing cooperation between the different divisions in their department.”

Team building coaching sessions can be scheduled for homogeneous groups such as equal level leadership personnel, managers, or staff employees. Combining all members of a department of different status levels is also particularly beneficial. Strategies here may include groups meeting first without leadership present to allow honest sharing of team members and completion of written surveys soliciting their feedback of what it’s like to work in that department, which is anonymously provided to leadership for review. Subsequent group meetings include all members who then together address the issues raised and work to resolve them.
