Working together

Understanding & Leveraging

Work Styles

People differ in how they process thoughts, communicate with others, organize their work, prioritize goals and approach problems. Fortunately, this diversity has the potential to be an organization’s greatest strengths. In this session, we will use the DiSC© profile to enhance self-awareness and learn strategies to enable better communication, motivation and influence across diverse styles.

Friday Night at the ER

This activity simulates the flow of people or goods through parts of an organization. The gameplay is engaging and teams are motivated to perform well. Following gameplay, the program leader guides participants through an interactive debrief that includes huddles, exercises and rich discussion. In this session, you will gain and understanding of systems thinking, collaborating across boundaries, making data-driven decisions, designing a structure for desired behavior, and understanding challenges through simulation.

Peer Review

In this session, participants will learn strategies for building a culture that fosters and supports effective peer review and learn the skills needed to give meaningful feedback and recognize and reduce bias. As a result, participants will be able to redefine peer review: OPPE, FPPE and physician core competencies, create a performance improvement culture (moving from punitive to positive) in your peer review process, and reduce peer review bias and conduct a multi-specialty peer review.

Collaborative Leadership:

Building Relationships that

Get Results (Equine Session)

In this session, you will gain important insights about what it takes to motivate, engage, influence, and earn the trust of those you lead – all with the help of uniquely qualified teaching assistants, horses. Horses are highly sensitive to emotional cues and respond primarily to body language, demeanor, mood and tone. Because of this, they provide unedited feedback about how you show up as a leader, and what it may take from you to earn trust and effectively influence change.


Strategy Mapping

Leading successful organizational improvement initiatives requires strategic thinking, planning, and action.  During this session, Terrain-Based Strategy™ (TBS) mapping will be introduced as an effective planning system that enables individuals, teams, and organizations to explore extraordinary opportunities.
