Lean Leadership Series Announced for San Francisco: Transforming Habits and Behaviors of Healthcare Leaders

Posted on by CATALYSIS

The ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value is hosting its second Lean Leadership Series at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital on April 5-7. The series is a multi-day, multi-workshop event designed to teach leaders how to practice new behaviors and create new habits. The workshops cover a broad range of topics, including coaching skills, the scientific method of problem solving and the key components of enterprise excellence. CE credits are available.

The series is designed to transform healthcare professionals into leaders who drive higher value in their organizations. “Management in a lean organization is built on leaders who coach, ask effective questions and solve problems,” said Marta Karlov, the Center’s director of education. “Fostering this new kind of leadership is the first step on healthcare’s Transformation Roadmap.”

The Lean Leadership Series allows participants to develop their own learning tracks by registering for up to three of the following sessions:

  • Defining and Deploying Strategy
  • Moving Beyond Budgeting in Healthcare
  • Implementing Rolling Forecasts in Healthcare
  • The Building Blocks of Enterprise Excellence
  • Creating a Lean Management System
  • A gemba visit to tour the host site, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital

The series blends classroom learning, gemba tours, and networking to offer a relevant, hands-on mix of experiences for leaders.

“The content is critical for any leader who aspires to become a lean leader,” said Luke Poppish, senior lean advisor of South Shore Hospital in Massachusetts. “This is a ‘just do it’ for all organizations struggling to find their way on their lean journey.”

Leah Mitchell of Salem Health stated, “[Coaching for Improvement] was the most valuable workshop I’ve ever attended. As an executive healthcare leader, it caused me to reflect on how I lead and how to develop others.”
