Management Development Program
Management Building Blocks Series includes five courses required for all newly promoted and hired people managers and supervisors. These course are designed to provide our staff who supervise employees with a more structured developmental experience.

New Leader Assimilation
Session for new hires with more than four direct reports to support quicker and stronger leader and team assimilation. The objectives of this session are to support the team in gaining new insight about the leader as a person, and as a leader, to enable the team to share needs, questions and/or concerns in a safe, confidential way so that the new leader can address and support the team’s success going forward, and to expedite the time it takes for the team to establish itself as a performing team.
Personal Leadership Study Groups
These 90-minute discussions focus on a leadership topic and a selected book or set of articles. Participants are provided with a copy of the readings ahead of time and are invited to a lively discussion and application session.
Our performance management process ensures that performance contributes to individual, team, and department success. This ongoing process offers an opportunity for employees and supervisors to provide each other with feedback about performance, goals, and development plans for the coming year. What makes up Performance Management at VNSNY?
Regardless of your clinical specialty, you'll participate in an orientation program that will help prepare you for your role. You will receive the foundation of a strong orientation to VNSNY and ongoing professional development, whether in a classroom, online, or under the guidance of your manager. And our generous tuition reimbursement policy provides financial support for undergraduate, graduate, and professional certification studies pursued outside of the organization.
To help all employees succeed, VNSNY provides the right tools: a solid orientation and VNSNY's special Onboarding process to get you grounded; continual support and resources to address immediate questions; and training and development opportunities that prepare you for today’s demands and tomorrow’s rewards.
