Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The development of a viable business plan: Health-Hardiness Training Institute
by Edes, Rebecca, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 53; 1598636
Abstract (Summary)

With a fast paced hectic environment, extensive work loads and decisions to make that affect countless lives, health administrators often experience high levels of stress. High stress levels can lead to burn out, negative work environment, poor inter-office relationships, reduced productivity and probable mental and emotional unease which can result in dismissal or quitting.

As employers are becoming increasingly aware that their businesses depend on the quality, efficiency and happiness of their employees, considerable efforts have been put into aiding them in reducing their stress and improving their well-being. Health-Hardiness Training Institute aims to utilize an all-encompassing approach that combines cognitive, behavioral and biophysical processes and change management training. With the tools taught by the Health-Hardiness Training Institute, healthcare managers will be better equipped to turn stressful circumstances into opportunities to thrive in.
