On-Demand Webinar: Building a Culture of Continuous Growth

By Amanda Ferenczy

As a leader, you’ve likely faced the stress of ever-expanding goals and targets. Every year brings new opportunities to set the bar higher and higher. This leaves some leaders in a constant cycle of asking themselves:

  • Why are my profits down?
  • Why are we missing deadlines/quality standards?
  • Why is morale down and/or turnover high?
  • Why can’t I find good people?
  • When will I get my life back?


However, these questions fail to address the heart of the problem. Often, the problem starts with company culture. The organization isn’t set up to learn and adapt quickly, and knowledge about new learnings isn’t easily shared company-wide.

In this webinar, George Brockman of Radiant Professional Services shares how to solve this problem.

You will learn:

  • How to create a learning-oriented culture in your organization
  • Why learning-oriented organizations are more successful
  • How a few answers to basic questions can lead to better decisions across the board
  • Why a learning culture promotes better teamwork
  • Strategies to solve organizational knowledge-sharing and communications challenges

On-Demand Webinar | 4 Keys to Success: Pacing the Healthcare Transition from Volume to Value

By Amanda Shelley

In this webcast, Scott Clay, Healthcare Consulting Principal at PYA, introduces a strategic framework to establish and communicate a pace of change that fits your organization and your market.

The transition from volume to value-based payments is arguably the most significant strategic issue facing healthcare providers today. However, the rate at which this transition is occurring is different across markets and providers. Determining the pace of change is unique to each organization and is a critical factor for financial success for all healthcare providers. Move too quickly and healthcare providers risk “leaving money on the table” in fee-for-service contracts. Move too slowly and they risk losing value-based payments. Timing, therefore, is everything and varies in each market.

You will learn:

  • How government policies “set the floor” on the degree of change required.
  • How to determine your market’s pace.
  • How to identify your current position and culture related to value-based payments.
  • How to set and communicate the pace of transition consistent with your market and your organization’s culture.
  • How to bring these components together into an executable plan that all healthcare providers can use and then monitor ongoing market changes.
