    "Creating Personal & Team Accountability"   

    This session takes a fun and practical look at what mindset leaders can and should take in improving their own personal accountability and that of their teams and staff. 
    We'll look at our own behaviors that may be negatively influencing our team's accountability without even realizing it. 

    We will spend time understand who are owners are and who may just be renting while struggling to be models of something beyond fashion and we'll use some role playing to be better equipped to share the real reasons for the way we do things instead of simply emphasizing the rules or having nothing better to say than "that's the way we've always done it", which always gets support of course.

    "Leadership & Emotions
    Through Turbulent Times"

    Speaker:  Kylie Livingston, aPHR       

         Director of Talent Management, Rally House

    Leaders have emotions too. Whether you’re going through something personal at home, an ongoing challenge at work, or the environment is creating turbulent times, the best leaders tune into their emotions and know how to effectively lead with them. Leaders can avoid becoming disoriented and caught up in the minutia of these times through practical behaviors, and the opportunity to influence others to do the same. Explore how leaders can leverage emotions to transcend to their team using practical steps for communication.

    Some learning points helpful for attendees are: 

    • Emotional Intelligence (EQ) during times of challenge
    • Steps to transcend your team through turbulent times
    • How leaders can stay grounded and set an example

    BIO: For the last thirty years, I have led family practice and specialty clinics, an ambulatory surgery center and an infusion center. My experience has ranged from starting new practices to adding services to large practices and sustaining financial viability. Managing the variability in healthcare has provided me the insights necessary for physicians to stay independent and profitable. As a Healthcare Consultant, I recognize that while regulations and reimbursement influence the practice, every organization has their unique strategies and challenges. My job as an advisor, is to listen to the independent needs of an organization and develop a customized program that contributes to the success of the business.

    "Benchmarking for Practice Success"       Edwards Deming said many decades ago, “you can’t manage what you can’t measure”.

    The purpose of benchmarking in healthcare is to improve efficiency, quality of care, patient safety, and patient satisfaction.  The process involves looking at standards, best practices, and evidence-based practices and then identifying potential areas of improvement.

    This session will focus on Organizational, Financial, and Quality benchmarking using case studies to demonstrate how to create new thinking in your healthcare organizations.  The process of benchmarking charts your own practice against a benchmark for an actual comparison and uses the information to drive change in the organization.
