Advice Needed

Recommended Posts

First of all...thanks to everyone responsible for putting together this website. There's a lot to it, but it is very helpful!


I was recently pushed out of an AD position and luckily, will be starting a new job soon doing the same thing. The only difference is that before I had no assistance from any staff and now I will have 2 part time assistants. My question is how do I go in and "make a good impression" on these 2? I don't want to come across as being too overwhelming or like I know everything. They have been there awhile now and I am very hopeful that we will make a great team. Any advice on how I should approach my first few days would be helpful. Are there any good seminars out there on Managing?

Hya Lea,

In my experiences in supervising I have learned that its better to get to know your employees and really get to know them. I have had employees of mine who were 3 times older than me and I would really get to know them, of course they knew I ment business and I never hesitated to write them up if they messed up, Its really good to be very open and communicate with your employees. If they know your truthful about working as a team you should not have any problem. If you have employees who are not in the "team" you really need to weed them out, they need to understand that you have your position and they have theirs and there is no reason as to why you all 3 cannot communicate properly and reach the goal of providing excellent services to your residents. I do understand that tiffs do arise, as the manager you need to resolve them 8-)~

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
