Leadership academy graduates first-ever class at Georgia hospital

The first-ever class at Albany, Ga.-based Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital's Leadership Development Program graduated Tuesday, according to WALB 10.

Over 120 hospital employees participated in the program, which partnered with the Leadership Institute at Columbus (Ga.) State University, to provide staff with leadership skills.

"It certainly lends to team building," said Jennifer Heleski, BSN, RN, nurse navigator of Women's and Children Services at Phoebe Putney, according to WALB 10. "Having to work together.  Having to learn how perspectives can be different than your own. So being able to adapt to those changes. Different situations, different types of people."
