In order to improve communication with co-workers and managers management can organize team and casual meeting to improve interaction.

By following the personal and professional development plan I have discover new skills of time management, leadership and accepting changes according to situation (Miller, 2014).

Personal and professional development has helped me to enhance self-confidence, understanding, knowledgeable and judgment skills according to work.

These skills have been consider by the management of Southern HSC for appointing me in organization for managing work and improve the human resource power (Ahgren, 2010).
In my working I have experienced many leadership approaches which has influenced my work and skills.

For example by following that approach manager evaluation of performance of department or individual and make decision accordingly which influence the work of organization and craft improvement in performance of department and individual (Bezboruah, Paulson and Smith, 2014). This has influenced me to work with positive frame of mind and maintain effective relation peers.

In addition to that my new manager at Southern HSC is following democratic leader approach to make balance in departments and individual relation, improve trust and developing effective communication which helps to create positive environment for working and overcome the issues in function of organization. This style of leadership influenced me to interact with employees and present my thoughts to contribute in development of effective services for patients as well as encourage my self for better working (Bryans, 2007).
Monitoring strategy and different techniques for promoting development in employees for health and social care
For monitoring the performance of employee, management of Southern Health care organization can use six steps approach. By following this approach management will effectively monitor the performance of individual and department. In that approach manager will collect the data about the task and functions performed by the individual and department, for that management can ask manager and supervises to gather the information about the performance of individual. In addition to that management also collect the information from patients and visitors to analyze the contribution of health and social care workers. In the next step management will baseline the collected data with standard sated for services and determining the quality of services (BELBIN TEAM ROLES, 2014). To monitor the performance organization will match the individual act with baseline and evaluate the performance. In the next step management will alert for performance according to baseline and develop matrix to determine the position of employees in organization. After alert management of Southern HSC will develop report about health care worker and supporting staff according to collected data and baseline. In report management will discuses positive and negative aspects of employees to effectively analyze the performance. After making the report management and head of the organization will analyze the performance and give their suggestion to improve the skills as well as personal and professional development of employees. In the last step manager will share the report of performance with direction to motivate and encourage the employee to improve performance (Hossain, 2012). in addition to that, to promote health and safety at work place management will conduct the meetings with the teams to analyze the issues regarding the skills and needs of employees. By the analysis of issues and suggestion of staff members management will able to take the decision for development of training plan for crafting the improvement in the skills of care workers. By using the Maslow hierarchy of needs management will also evaluate the expectation of employees that will help to development of individual according to needs of organization. This strategy will more effective for the development of skills as per the requirements of health and social care organization. Through this strategy, management will also can motivate the employees according to their needs and encourage for the improvement in the skills and qualities that required for delivering the health and social care services in professional efficient manners.
In order to develop skills of employees and health care workers management can use techniques in which HR administrator will have to perform relationship management in the organization. It means that he will have to build and maintain strong relation with employees. In addition to development techniques manger of Southern Health care organization can use the motivation technique from that will influence nature of individual and encourage them to work with positive frame of mind to satisfied the needs of patients.
Critical evaluation of training and development needs in health and social care
It is observed that training and development is required at health and social care centers in order to enhance the working of company (Mousumy, 2014). The quality of services need to be improved but they may sometimes impact adversely to the company. While providing training to employees, the real time patients often becomes dummy for the practitioners. Under such circumstances, the real clients suffer by getting the experimental treatment which may generate harmful results. In order to identify the needs of training organization can use the observation and complaint methods which will help to develop the plan for improvement in skills by including the issues identified. This activity will be performed by the manager and supervisors of departments at health and social care organization. Other than such issues, the cost of experiments for training and development is borne by the actual clients in the form of increased royalty paid over fee. They cannot avoid such amount because of its mandatory payment included under the receipt of payment for the treatment. This has influenced me to work with positive frame of mind and maintain effective relation peers. From my leader I have learned to communicate problems and issues to improve the quality of health care services which develop my professional skills.
