Patient engagement is a critical element of today's quality healthcare delivery.

As wearable devices, health and patient portals, apps and social media become more commonplace, both patients and providers now have access to more health data than ever before. With the proliferation of health data, stakeholders use data analytics to support and improve patient engagement. In this webinar, you learn about the 21st-century healthcare landscape, assess how tech-enabled consumers are reordering the healthcare landscape, review opportunities and challenges for sustaining patients engagement and health analytics. This webinar will include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UCI DCE’s fully online Healthcare Analytics Specialized Studies Program.

00419 Gen Z: Counseling and Educating a Different Generation
Wednesday, February 5, 2020
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

Entitled. Lazy. Addicted to screens. Overstressed. High-maintenance. Underprepared. No matter what label is slapped on Generation Z, it never seems to be particularly flattering; sometimes it even implies downright de-evolution of the species. Yet few generations have had higher expectations for success as people look for the Mark Zuckerberg in each and every one of them. They have been introduced to financial crisis, fake news, parental paranoia, and digital revolution very early, often with little-to-no third party guidance until it is too late, even at the most elite of schools.

Through the lens of his 15 years as an independent educational consultant and 22 years in education, including time working in college admissions at Harvard and Yale, leading the guidance program at two New York private high schools, teaching in the inner-city and working at a policy think tank, Keith Berman attempts to find some truth and balance in the discussion of who Gen Z is, how to work with them, and, perhaps, why he continues to do so (joyfully!) each day. This session is intended for an audience of people who are working, or intending to work, with high school students, but parents and students may enjoy it as well. This webinar will include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UCI DCE’s fully online Independent Educational Consultant Certificate Program.

00407 Scaling "agiLE”: Agile in the Large Enterprise
Thursday, February 6, 2020
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

As more large enterprises are adopting agile practices organization-wide, they face unique challenges when compared to smaller organizations or individual projects. While most agile approaches work well at the team level, many of those same preferred practices just don’t work when scaled beyond a single team. In this webinar, Cadase Hokanson, Business Architect at Seilevel, will explore the primary motivations for large global organizations to adopt agile practices, and give an overview of different scaled approaches and their limitations when scaling. We will also discuss the most common challenges our customers’ teams are up against, and suggestions to overcome those challenges. Candase is a Business Architect at Seilevel and a PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner who trains and coaches product owners, scrum masters and business analysts on agile approaches as well as championing products in those roles for clients.

The webinar will also include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UCI DCE’s Business Analysis certificate program.

00420 Energy Leadership: How to Create and Sustain an Anabolic Spa Culture
Monday, February 24, 2020
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

Leadership is a topic of great interest in the spa industry because it is considered a central factor in a spa’s potential to succeed. While there are conflicting opinions on whether a leader is made (through experience) or born (having natural talent), research suggests that effective leadership requires a foundation of skills and capabilities that are non-negotiable. These include emotional intelligence, influence, clear communication, conflict management, problem solving, productivity, and engagement. Interestingly, many spa leaders possess these skills, but few understand how to access them efficiently. What do these leaders have that give them an advantage? The answer is anabolic energy.

When you hear the word energy, you may be thinking about a place on the “feeling tired” to “feeling inspired” spectrum – and you’re absolutely right! As spa leaders become consciously aware of the level of their energy and what affects it, they can develop better control over their thoughts, emotions, behavior, raise their overall energy, and increase their ability to achieve the results they ultimately desire from a given situation. The influence of energy on leadership is a growing area of research and studies have revealed the significant and positive relationship between a leader’s ability to tap into anabolic energy and their personal level of life satisfaction (at work and at home).

Join Shawn Hallum as he discusses how energy and your awareness of it can help you to transform your spa’s team dynamics. Attendees of the webinar will receive a discount on the Energy Leadership Index Assessment (measuring your level of current leadership energy) and a personalized debrief (explaining your results and highlighting opportunities for growth). The webinar will also include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in the UCI Division of Continuing Education fully online Spa and Wellness Management Certificate Program.
