Be Assertive, Not Aggressive: Creating Professional and Realistic Boundaries in the Workplace
Learn how to create boundaries and resolve conflict in the workplace while maintaining a professional manner.  If you are a success-minded individual, assertiveness is a must-have skill. Every workplace has extroverted and introverted personalities. Assertiveness gives you the skills to deal with both types in a confident, calm, self-assured manner. If you lack assertiveness, extroverted, dominant individuals may make you their doormat. Have you experienced this? Avoid it by learning assertiveness skills and how to set boundaries. Conflict is inherent to working together. Conflict ranges from huge decisions such as where to build a new manufacturing plant or what software to buy to simple decisions like where we should go for lunch and what hotel we want to book for the holiday party. When you express your preferences assertively, people listen. Assertiveness skills also help you resolve the conflict between team members. If you, as a manager, fail to resolve conflicts, bad attitudes fester and a toxic environment is created. Morale slips in the organization and the best workers end up leaving for greener pastures on the other side of the fence. As we progress through this information, you'll gain communication, confrontation, and assertiveness skills that will give you confidence in your abilities to set boundaries, interface with and lead a variety of people. Assertive language and thought processes take practice. Work on the skills and you'll be amazed at the results.

Supporting Employee Growth & Professional Development
Learn how to integrate vertical development into employee development efforts and gain clarity on what to focus on. If 2020 taught us anything, it is that we need leaders and employees that are more capable of effectively navigating change, uncertainty and complexity. Unfortunately, typical leader and employee development techniques are not very effective at meeting these dynamic needs. The primary purpose of this topic is to introduce a relatively unknown form of employee development that is designed to help enhance leaders' and employees' agility and dynamism: vertical development. Vertical development differs from traditional horizontal development efforts in that it primarily focuses on elevating the level of one's mental development, instead of just focusing on knowledge transfer or skill development. To help integrate vertical development into leader and employee development efforts, this material will help you gain clarity on what to focus on (the mind) and the best way to help leaders and employees attain higher levels of mental development. This material is critical for employers who want to ensure that their organizations and workforce are agile and ready to take on an uncertain and complex future.

Working With Passive-Aggressive Personalities
Learn how best to leverage the energy and passion of passive-aggressive personalities to produce win-win results. Working with people can be like diffusing an explosive device. Everyone has the potential to blow if mishandled. When the natural tendency to be passive meets a strong desire for fairness or equity or the need to win or be right, the conditions become ripe for potential disaster. Handling passive-aggressive situations passively leads to enabling undesirable behavior. Confronting passive-aggressive people may set off a powder keg of emotion and resistance. This material will help you uncover the roots of passive-aggressive behavior, disarm the aggressor, open up the passivist, and move the conversation into the assertive zone - even creating a long-term culture where communication is safe and productive.

Medical Records 101: Responding to Requests for Patient Information
Gain a comprehensive look at the rules on access and prepare for the process of incorporating any necessary changes into how you do business. Individual access of health information is a top issue at the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), as a focal point for enforcement under HIPAA, and in the fight to eliminate information blocking under the 21st Century Cures Act. New rules are proposed to require the sharing of Protected Health Information (PHI) among providers and with patients, and the most recent HIPAA enforcement action is directly focused on ensuring patients are provided the records they request promptly. Improving individual access to medical records is an idea whose time has definitely arrived, and providers that do not follow the rules and guidance from HHS are risking significant penalties. HHS is serious about information blocking, and is using HIPAA to advance goals for better patient access of medical records. In addition, HHS has proposed changes to the HIPAA rules to improve the response of healthcare providers to requests to access or transfer PHI, especially electronic information. This topic will help health information professionals understand what they have to do in regard to requests for patient information, and when, and what to keep in mind as they move forward, in order to be in compliance with the regulations. It will provide a comprehensive look at the emphasis on the rules on access and prepare attendees for the process of incorporating any necessary changes into how they do business in their facilities. The new information blocking regulations and proposed changes to the HIPAA regulations will be reviewed and their effects on usual practices will be discussed, as will what policies need to be changed and how. We will show what policies and evidence you may need to produce if your compliance is reviewed by the HHS Office of Civil Rights, which has already indicated that compliance with the rules on patient access of records is a significant problem, with more than a dozen-and-a-half enforcement settlements announced in recent months.
