Staff Development

What you settle for stays with you. Why settle for average when you can be phenomenal? Why live in a chicken coop when you can fly like an eagle? You are the gatekeeper of your destiny. Shut the door to ordinary and open your life to extraordinary.

Components of Eagle Excellence

Eagle Excellence seeks to engage CommWell Health colleagues at every level in the organization. The initiative is designed to engage colleagues at all levels within the organization by participating in structured team-based collaborative work, committing to a quality ethic in all aspects of one’s work, utilizing performance data to monitor and improve patient satisfaction and service quality, developing and enhancing interpersonal and professional skills and fostering the truth that everyone has the ability, as a leader, to influence others in a productive and positive manner.
