The Next Generation of Senior Living Executive Directors and Leaders: Who are they?
The number one challenge expressed at the most recent ARGENTUM Conference was people. In particular community managers and operational leadership.
Think about it. There are just not enough high impact leaders to go around. As a result, communities underperform and returns on investments lag. Now in a more competitive market, with demand not projected to crank-up for between 3 to 5 years, simply “having” a community no longer is a path to success.
The solution is obvious. We have to better understand what causes a high impact leader to be one. The alternative is to wait and hope for an experienced, high performing manager to come our way. And will you even recognize one? Few management hires produce the positive impact you need. The other option is to keep the underperforming managers in place. There are lots of those to go around.
So what causes a person to be highly successful in an operational role from Executive Director to COO?
We really would enjoy your input. We have our answers and would like to hear yours. Once we have them we can then help identify the success characteristics we should all be on the look-out for, regardless of background and experience. And alleviate the shortage of high impact talent.

U.S. hospitals help drive economic growth, report finds
The healthcare industry and more specifically, hospitals, are continuing to support economic growth and stability across the country.
An annual review from the American Hospital Association found that in 2015, hospitals provided 1 in 9 U.S. jobs, reported Fierce Healthcare. Directly, there were 5.7 million people working in hospitals that year, however, an additional 10.3 million positions were also filled as a result of the “ripple effect.”
Reporting on data from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Fierce Healthcare noted that hiring trends are continuing this year. In January 2017, hospitals added 4,000 jobs and ambulatory care services created 11,000 new positions.
Those figures brought the total numbers of employees in the healthcare industry to over 15 million.
In addition to supporting employment, hospitals also help to drive the economy. According to a blog post by the AHA STAT staff that accompanied the annual review of the association, in 2015 hospitals supported over $2.8 trillion in economic activity. The review found that hospitals shelled out close to $852 billion on services and goods from other industries and businesses.
“Hospitals provide vital high-quality health care services to millions of people each year and support a healthy, productive workforce,” wrote the AHA STAT staff. “But what’s not well enough known is how all that quality healthcare acts as an engine driving trillions of dollars of economic activity in communities across the nation.”
