The key to any organization’s success lies in its culture. Culture plays a fundamental role in staff engagement, achievement of excellence, and navigating organizational change in the face of uncertainties and disruption. And a thriving culture starts with you.

Alumni of the SMFM Leadership Academy program are invited to participate in the 2019 Dan O’Keeffe SMFM Leadership Academy 2.0: Leading Cultures of Excellence. Reconnect with other alums, build on your previous Leadership Academy learning experiences, and engage in the most up-to-date research on leadership to create systems thinking and culture change. 

Leadership Academy alums: join us in Denver on April 6-7, 2019 for conversations, strategies and specific tools to:

  • Recognize that culture is created day by day, and how you behave as a leader builds that culture
  • Set the course for the evolutionary journey of cultural excellence
  • Infuse positivity into your organization’s DNA and fuel transformation of individuals, teams, and systems with positivity
  • Cultivate culture as a diverse ecosystem of talent and excellence – to reach full potential and create a desired future
  • Lead teams and individuals with clear direction and purpose
  • Engage in practical strategies and tools to create and sustain a cultural shift and ultimate transformation within your team and organization
  • Identify the impact drivers that help your teams be more engaged, positive and performing at their peak
  • Share specific examples of incremental and sustainable cultural change initiatives that have led to transformations in your healthcare teams, practices, and organizations
