Aged Care

Aged Care is a complex and demanding work environment, with many changes constantly flushing through the system. In the past the rules said you must work this way; Now the rules say the resident is absolutely at the centre of everything you do, this signifies a huge change in philosophy and a mind shift you will need to undertake to make things work.

Working in Aged Care is not easy and there is a belief amongst hospital staff that if you manage in residential aged care, you have taken an easy option. Nothing could be further from the truth.

There is a public lens on aged care, and quite rightly so, and this makes leading and managing in aged care all the more complex. Most managers want to do their best, they care about their residents and employees, yet at times feel overwhelmed with the demands in aged care and feel that managing people consumes them, and from time to time, in reality it will. Specialist leadership training and coaching is essential for leaders and manager to discover from an expert how to engage your people and deliver great results, why wait to figure it out for yourself?


Healthcare is a dynamic and fast paced environment that requires leadership and management skills to match. Not only are you required to have advanced clinical decision making and reasoning skills, you are also expected to possess the leadership nous to manage a team, work closely with medical and allied health staff and provide context and answers for the consumer and their representatives.

Change is ever present to keep pace with technological advancements and consumer demands. The flexibility offered to staff often stops when you are promoted and become a leader manager, as does the structure support you need to do your job well. As leader manager you must guide your staff to bring about great outcomes for patients/consumers however this can only be realised when staff understand their core purpose. It is your job to bring that clarity to their purpose. Learn how to direct your energy and manage your time more effectively.

You can’t be all things to all people, but you can be the best leader manager in the area you work.

Specialist leadership training and coaching is essential for leaders and manager to discover from an expert how to engage people and deliver great results by implementing simple and proven strategies.

Enhance the Things that Matter

I have attended many conferences, but there was one presentation that stood out; not only for content but how it was dealt with it.  It was the presentation on the Royal commission.  I thought it would be a dry, boring rendition on proceedings.  But Allison told the story and shared the experiences of the couple whose tragedy triggered the investigation, it really brought out the genuine desire to bring heart and soul into our profession.
