Breaking The Old Rules of Leadership: Employee Expectations Have Changed!

These days, it seems like employee behavior isn’t as predictable as it used to be. It wasn’t long ago that a leader could count on employees to hunker down to work in exchange for a paycheck. But many employees don’t even want to come back to the office. If only the old-school rules of leadership still worked.

Workers expect far more than they ever have before. The pandemic has brought mental health conversations to the forefront, ready or not. People at work are no longer tolerating the 24/7 demands, the subtle and not so subtle bullying, and the expectation that work overrides life. What’s a leader to do?

The senior living landscape was already undergoing significant transformations before COVID-19, including telehealth, nursing challenges, and staffing concerns. However, the pandemic accelerated these changes by around five years, causing unprecedented disruption. Addressing staff burnout, isolation costs, and adapting to the aging population remains crucial. This session highlights the sector's post-pandemic outlook, covering technology, competition, home care, partnerships, workforce, and healthcare dynamics. Despite shifts, the aging population and workforce challenges persist, making strategic responses essential.
