Effective sponsorship is one of the most important ingredients for a high-performing unit-based team. Sponsors are the go-to people for UBT co-leads, providing resources, guidance and oversight for teams—and they’re the ones who sign off on a team’s rating as it moves through the five Path to Performance levels.
Sponsors may be managers, physicians or union members. They are chosen for their leadership skills and the ability to help others develop those skills.
Whether you are a new sponsor or a seasoned pro, this section offers tips and tools you can use with your teams as well as peer advice and on-the-ground examples of stellar sponsorship. You can download the Sponsor and Leader Resource Guide for UBTs, or look through this section and the Working with your sponsor page (in the UBT section of the site) for information and many of the tools from the guide.
