Supervisor's Business Concepts Course


In our rapidly changing, expanding and often fiscally vulnerable behavioral health landscape, the Supervisor's Business Concepts Course brings business knowledge and practice directly to the behavioral health manager and supervisor through a specially designed curriculum consisting of training, workshops and expert panelists.

Each year, MCTAC and the Coalition for Behavioral Health team up with Yves Ades, Ph.D., Principal at Ades Integrated Health Strategies deliver this comprehensive course to select supervisors and managers from across New York State. Through interactive and didactic sessions, participants learn essential business constructs and explore how to apply them into their day-to-day program and workforce management activities. With these new skills and knowledge, behavioral health managers and supervisors are better equipped to improve their organizations and the health of their communities. 

What Participants Learn:

  • Foundational business constructs
  • Key principles of sustainable service delivery in managed healthcare
  • Tools that promote organizational sustainability

Skills Participants Gain:

Participants will gain an array of core business management skills, including:

  • Budgeting
  • Change management
  • Data-driven decision making
  • Excel basics
  • Supervision best practices and principles
