Health care HR professionals must attend this pre-conference workshop to ensure that you are asking the right questions during interviews. There is no bigger waste of time than hiring an individual that doesn’t fit within the organization’s culture. This session will assist you in finding the right candidate by dissecting the most common interview questions and strategies.
What should you be asking in interviews? Leadership IQ's research discovered that attitude, not skills, causes 89% of mishires. Issues like coachability, emotional intelligence, and temperament determine whether new hires will succeed or fail. So you need interview questions that will reveal those characteristics (and differentiate high and low performers).
- Six words that ruin behavioral interview questions when you're trying to hire for attitude
- Two quick tests to discover the attitudinal characteristics that your organization MUST include in interviews
- Why you should never ask “tell me about yourself” or “what are your strengths/weaknesses”
- Four-part interview question that reveals if people are "coachable" and what their last boss really thought about them
- Learn why most hiring managers ask way too many questions, forcing candidates to give very fast and superficial answers (and learn how many questions you should ask)
- One sentence to say when you think the candidate is lying to you
- How to assess attitude when you’re conducting team interviews
- Get a structured form for assessing and evaluating all of your candidates
- One question that reveals if somebody goes "above and beyond" in their role

As health systems across the nation strive to increase operating margins to fund future growth, they must increasingly rely on decisions made by frontline and mid-level managers. In order to make informed, productive decisions, a solid understanding of finance is required. Yet, these managers express unease with their competence in financial matters.
This pre-conference learning track teaches managers core concepts about the financial management of their areas. This is designed to be relevant to a broad base of managers as it is targeted to those who have had some experience with basic financial concepts but have not yet become experts in the day-to-day management of financial issues in their areas.
Understand hospital finances as a whole and how their unit’s finances align themselves with their larger department as well as the entire institution
Differentiate between the three financial statements—balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows
Expose participants to financial health system economics and the ways in which their decisions impact performance—how cash flows and why
Understand how hospitals fund growth and the role interest plays in bond pay back
This pre-conference learning track incorporates classroom presentation, multimedia presentation, interactive exercises, and group discussion. The following topics are among those included in this course:
The Revenue Element of Margin
The Cost Element of Margin

Health reform is here to stay - - or is it? While many pieces are relatively certain, other aspects of this comprehensive change are fluid and uncertain. What is known is that health care reform will affect virtually every aspect of hospital operations. HR leaders who understand these changes and can develop strategies to leverage health reform to the advantage of their hospitals will be critically important. This workshop will provide a real-time update on health reform’s impact following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decisions regarding health care reform (cite case) on labor, employee benefits, health law issues as they affect health care HR matters, as well as what is happening on Capitol Hill on health reform.
- Understand the current and projected initiatives of health care reform and provide guidance that will enable participants to develop your own strategies to maximize HR opportunities
- Identify the HR implications, changes, and challenges that health care reform presents, including benefit plans, welfare plans, and executive compensation
- Educate participants about the key health care system structural changes that will affect HR the most, such as the acquisition and integration of physician practices and physician groups
