National Silver Quality Award Application Workshop
Care Providers of Minnesota presents a full-day SILVER Quality Award workshop to help you better understand the Silver Award application criteria, scoring, and strategies for a successful 2019 application submission. Workshop registration includes three follow-up virtual events. Workshop participants are eligible for a discounted consulting rate with Paul Grizzell, if additional coaching is desired.
Over the past two years,
80% of attendees
who attended a Care Providers of Minnesota’s quality award workshop and submitted a Silver Quality Award application were awarded the Silver Quality Award!
The workshop is designed for key leaders to better understand how to accelerate their progress from the bronze level to the silver level of recognition. Suggested participants are administrators or executive directors and directors of nursing or directors of home care, along with other leadership team members—including owners. A team approach is the most effective method to develop your application in a manner that makes it your “management document,” and not just an award application.
Are you eligible?
Care Providers of Minnesota is delighted to once again partner with Paul Grizzell, President of Core Values Partners, and Baldrige Coach, to present the Silver Award workshop
