Rise Up, Leader Cohort — New Group Starting Soon!
Escaping the Management Conundrum

ALCA has partnered with Wide Awake Business, an ALCA Corporate Partner, to provide a series of structured group training courses, called the Rise Up, Leader Cohort specifically focusing on the management conundrum.

Who is this for? If you are a Business Owner who is relatively new or a Supervisor, Director, or Manager who leads and/or directs a group of Aging Life Care Managers this is the program for YOU!

The Cohort — Group coaching, training & support

  • 11 group sessions, a max of 2 hours each
  • Meet every 3 weeks over 11 months
  • 6-8 people per cohort

If you are managing a team, or you have a staff member managing a team, or you plan on hiring a staff member to manage the team – this program is developed with you in mind.

Cohorts meet every 3 weeks for 11 sessions to discuss team leadership, bring real HR issues to the table, hear from the experts . . . Rise Up, Management and Team Leadership. Each Cohort member will create a leadership project to be implemented within the organization or within the community.

COHORT VS MASTERMIND — What’s the difference?

  • Cohort is a group of people who have something in common and during a specific time, with a trainer or facilitator, work on one topic, for example Leadership.
  • Mastermind is a peer-to-peer mentoring group used to help business owners solve problems with input and advice from the other group members.

WAB has been Interviewing Aging Life Care Managers to create a tailored syllabus that fits YOU. 

Our number 1 job as Leaders is to Rise Up those around us!

WAB has interviewed 10 ALCM owners and 8 Supervisors so far: here is some feedback they have collected.

  • Supervisors need to be on top of their game with clinical skills.
  • Difficult conversations.
  • Completing assessments and writing Care Plans – but most importantly – how to train new Aging Life Care Managers (ALCMs) to complete these tasks.
  • ALCM supervisors need training in having Critical Conversations with ALCMs - such as discussing performance issues.
  • Managing different folks with different styles of communication and motivation.
  • Skill development for supervisors in how to write performance reviews with specific goals for performance expectations.
  • Time Management and billing for all time spent on client issues is critical.
  • Relationship building and the importance of open, positive and regular communication with referral and potential referral sources.
  • Knowledge and skills in conflict resolution.
  • Code of Ethics versus Core Competencies.
  • Differences in supervision/management.
  • Different management styles if the employee is contract, hourly, part-time, or full time.
  • How to motivate different styles of ALCMs.
