Healthcare & Public HealthLeading in Health Systems: Creating Unity of Effort for Improved Outcomes. Few environments are as complex as modern healthcare with its multiplicity of stakeholders, evolving business models, changing technology, and ever-expanding knowledge base.

The building blocks of effective leadership help you create a highly functioning team and organization that delivers sustainable high performance.
Leadership, Communication & MotivationalYou’re It! How to Lead When it Matters Most: Based on his recent book, You’re It: Crisis Change, and How to Lead When it Matters Most. Leadership moments come for all of us–some planned and some utterly unexpected. Will you be ready to set direction, make decisions, and inspire action when it is needed most? Eric uses the dimensions of meta-leadership developed through work with hundreds of leaders in high stakes situations to help participants develop both their leadership capacity and capability.
ARTful Leadership: Adaptive Capacity, Resilience, and Trust: In the age of networks, the ability to adapt and transform is paramount. Drawing up his extensive research on the extraordinary collaboration and cooperation in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings as well as the latest research on swarm intelligence, psychological safety, teaming, and trust building, Eric presents a powerful and pragmatic framework for building highly adaptive, resilient, and trustworthy organizations.
ResilienceResilience: Keeping Your, and Your Team, Stronger, Longer: In this session, Eric reveals a systems perspective on resilience by unpacking the interdependencies between personal, team, and organizational relationships that enable teams to be stronger, longer.

This requires both a developmental mindset and specific leader behaviors. Participants will learn how a “resilience manifesto” translates intent into tangible action to foster team resilience.
