This case-based MasterClass explores the challenges of management, including resistance to change and lack of trust as root causes for why initiatives fail. Discuss the power of connecting people with purpose and other critical success factors that transform professionals into more effective leaders, who in turn distinguish their organizations as industry frontrunners. A unique highlight of the workshop is a case discussion, “The Bridge”, which illustrates lessons about launching, leading, and realizing value from change initiatives with implications for addressing SDoH-affected populations.

  • Explore how to remove barriers and overcome engagement issues in a format that challenges participants’ decision-making process in moving from a current to a future desired state
  • Discuss how to leverage a strong sense of purpose in leadership to help your organization and team overcome unanticipated obstacles as well as cultural and social barriers
  • Create a higher-performing organization with a unique competitive advantage
