What does it take to be a successful leader in a complex market?

Today’s health and human service executives are facing a market focused on value and collaboration. They need to be adept at planning for and managing a continuum of services within integrated financing and service delivery models. They need to integrate health and human service organization business operations. They need to blend possibly divergent corporate cultures. They need to coordinate and develop a system of high quality and financially viable mutually dependent services.

To master these challenges, executive teams will need meta-leadership skills to thrive. Meta-leaders reach across organizations and sectors to build cross-cutting strategies. They exchange information, share resources, and coordinate systems and personnel. They use their influence and connections to guide a cooperative course of action. Being a meta-leader requires a unique mindset and skill set, and it requires building strong alliances with a diverse array of leaders.

The 2017 OPEN MINDS Executive Leadership Retreat is focused on developing the meta-leadership skills executives need to build sustainable organizations in a time of transformation and collaboration. This three-day retreat is an immersive leadership experience that will concentrate on strengthening transformational leadership and business management tools and developing the meta-leadership skills executive teams need to thrive.
