Great Team to work with in a very high stress work environment
Designated coordinator/Behavioral Analyst/Manager (Current Employee) – Hayfield, MN – January 1, 2018
A typical work day involved reading/corresponding emails among each individual teams representatives. Also had a lot of involvement with the House Impress/Account, paying bills, ordering supplies, and medications. Various Policy updates with staff, staff observations, planning staff meetings, and making schedules in accordance to Union Regulations. Making sure staff are understanding updated policy, scheduling trainings for improving behavioral intervention techniques along with individual appointments, and Annual/Semi Annual individual meetings. The workplace culture was very reliant on the other staff at the house and knowing the individuals to ensure we are able to maintain safety. Lots of communication and preparation. Last did a lot of work with individual Self Management Assessments, Community Service Support Plan Addendums, individual support plans, and collection and compilation of behavior target symptom data. The hardest part of the job was the keeping up with the constant policy updates that seem to happen monthly. The management was very straight forward and direct with the tasks/requirements they expected from me as the manager of the house. I really enjoyed improving the quality of life for the individuals we served and enhancing community inclusion for all individuals in the home.
