Integrate leadership development with high performance team development and organization development an realize positive organizational change and results.

Balance today’s drive for results with a leadership style that supports people and a healthier work culture, leaders today invest in developing their Emotional and Social Intelligence competencies, the so-called “star competencies” of highly effective leaders and professionals.

Team building retreats are perfect for custom-designed “key issue / opportunity” Break-Out Team exercises, where small teams produce powerful ideas, recommendations, and “take-away” action plans for positive change after the retreat is over.

“Take away” action plans and action teams are assigned during and / or after the retreat for results-based implementation. This also creates an ROI and ROO (return-on-objectives) for your executive retreat investment.

Large group facilitation is intended to build a more positive organizational climate and morale. Maria Todd facilitates innovative Town Halls or “All Hands” Meetings, and transform the groupthink through powerful two-way communication & open engagement sessions between leaders and managers or staff or defined work groups. 

Alternatively, to effect positive change in contracted reimbursement, contract analysis and negotiation and align with a strategy, for example, the team (contract analysts, negotiators, revenue management line managers, denials and appeals technicians, refund clerks and C-Suite representatives with authority over brand, message and financial goals) works together to decide strategy and develop the script or action plan to execute on it.

These sessions can also leverage “all the right people in the room” for idea brainstorming and recommendations for positive change or strategic “war games ” to “kick start” action steps and rehearse action steps during and after the meeting.

Appreciative Inquiry methods engage groups in a positive thinking, “strength finding” planning process to build a desired outcome or Future state based on what is working well in an organizational system or team.

Teams focus their action plans based on expanding and building out on “strengths” and positive behaviors that bring energy and life to a complex situation.

Open Space is an active group engagement method that helps a group address key issues, opportunities, and important topics.

  • The group “self organizes” around the high priority issues into small teams, based on where there is the most passion, energy, high priority complex issues and develops an initial framework solution to the issue.
  • Small self-organized teams report back to the full group for open dialogue, and action teams / plans are made to resolve the issues and to implement solutions after the retreat.

Decide the personality of your brand, identify the gaps, and set goals for work environment, mission, values, ethics, brand touchpoints, customer expectations, and incremental goals. Patients, employers and insurers demand this from you.

Sales training for healthcare organizations tends to focus on marketing to third-party payors and group health plans that may not realize your innovative value proposition that can help them realize cost containment goals and objectives through high-quality, high-value provider contracts. Training your team how to articulate your best competitive and comparative advantage to prospects to gain more referrals, more revenue and raise brand awareness and value reputation.
