51_Dealing with Disruptive Behaviors: Cultivating a Culture That Allows People to Fall Back in Love with Their Job Sonia Rhodes and Dr. Renee Thompson

Hosted by Quint Studer with special guests Sonia Rhodes and Dr. Renee Thompson

There has been an uptick of bad behavior in the workplace. While bullying, lack of civility and respect, and conflict have always been there, a global pandemic has just exacerbated it.

Sonia Rhodes and Dr. Renee Thompson share strategies for how to build a strong culture that creates a great experience for patients, employees, and coworkers. They say culture and employee experience will not only allow us to attract and keep the best and brightest, it will allow us to provide the best clinical outcomes, as well as achieve our financial and operational goals.

You’ll learn:

  • How to build a culture by design, not by default
  • Why getting intentional about the kind of workplace you want is the key
  • Why a high performer who behaves badly is really a low performer
  • Why leaders might ignore bad behavior and why that’s so dangerous
  • Why naming bad behaviors is key to helping the team confront them
  • How to create a self-regulating culture where every single colleague understands what right looks like and becomes an ambassador for how to make things better
  • How culture and experience drive all other success
  • Practical strategies for approaching employees who are having a difficult time complying with the rules
