Healthcare is in crisis. Most of us know the intractable challenges. Cut services. Demanded productivity. Decreased accessibility. Runaway cost. Exhausted leaders. Lots more. Yet, many of us also have high hopes for healthier healthcare. We have beginnings of irrepressible dreams for a healthcare systems that thrive. For a system committed to wellness. For simplicity that doesn’t deny the complexity, yet responds well to it.
Crisis is an opportunity for change. Real change calls for a new story and practice of leadership. From all levels of people that want to help. Healthcare needs courageous, imaginative people now with skills to co-create and to live simultaneously in both the current challenged systems and the emerging systems of the future. It means learning new skills and developing new networks of colleagues that cross organizational, professional and generational boundaries.
Collaborating for healthier healthcare now.
This event is for people who feel it is actually possible to create healthier healthcare. And know that it must happen more systemically. For people who want to see and do leadership differently for the future of healthcare. For people hungry for a new conversation. That feel a responsibility for imagining and contributing what hasn’t been imagined before. For people who know that the way to take on big stuff is to turn to each other. Muck it up. Get curious. Stay focused.
Welcome individuals and teams. All of you -- doctors, nurses, administrators, senior executives, insurance leaders, community health advocates, practitioners in public health, complementary and alternative medicine practitioners, dentists, academics, policy makers, pharmacists, primary care associations, consumers.
The conversation will be held in the patter of the Art of Hosting. Participants will also be invited to a year-long community of practice with healthcare professionals and fellow participants, as well as two personal or team follow-up coaching sessions to support sustained learning and change.
