Transform Work Relationships Right Now!
A Leadership Practice

The highest financial, quality, and safety results depend on a team culture which fosters empowerment and learning. But, even for the most experienced leaders, such a culture is very difficult to shape and sustain in the midst of the stress of health care. No matter our level of relational skills, our brains are hard-wired in a way that leads to blind spots and reactivity under stress. This workshop led by Neil Baker, MD, offers evidence-informed strategies to enhance self-awareness and tap into everyone’s highest skills and values when you most need them—right now! Detailed workshop description.

Designed primarily for physician, administrative, nursing, and quality leaders, but open to all health care professionals. Learn more about Dr. Baker.

This workshop is open to all, even if you aren't able to attend the Colloquium. Only $200 for members/sponsors! Get the details on the registration page

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Massari, Morris-Singer

Transforming Lives: The Art of Person-Centered Care

Allison Massari will kick off the conference by taking us on a journey, offering tools to rise above any obstacle, and find peace, purpose, and happiness despite turbulent times. As the survivor of two life-threatening car accidents, Massari shares her story of absolute loss, to forgiveness and understanding. She illuminates how compassionate, patient-centered care can build an expansive, life-changing foundation for healing, for both patient and provider.

With sensitivity and compassion born from her experiences, Massari shines light on the provider’s immense value to a patient who is suffering, reinvigorating employees and helping heal health care burnout in the workplace. As an advocate for both patient and health care provider, Massari’s powerful understanding of the essential nature of patient-centered care fortifies audience members, offering applicable tools for managing change, adversity, and the everyday challenges of being human.

Revitalizing Primary Care through Relational Leadership

On the second day, Dr. Andrew Morris-Singer, a primary care physician, advocate and founder of the nonprofit Primary Care Progress, will discuss strategies for achieving the true interdependent and high performing care teams that are increasingly necessary in our rapidly evolving health systems. Drawing on insights from both health care and grassroots organizing, Dr. Morris-Singer will highlight some of the key relational leadership practices essential to achieving both success of teams and satisfaction of team members, and how they can act as a powerful complement to the more structural and process interventions increasingly being utilized in contemporary quality improvement efforts.

Audience members will walk away inspired with a new set of ideas for how to transform care and revitalize themselves and colleagues at the same time. Learn more about Dr. Morris-Singer.
