"Leaders must work collaboratively, across boundaries, while fostering creativity and innovation to truly transform our health industry. It is with this North Star vision that we have created the Institute for leaders interested in mastering the mindset and skillset of TLD Group's Health Ecosystem Leadership Model (HELM™) to positively impact results within their own organizations and across sectors and industries," said Tracy Duberman, PhD, President and CEO of TLD Group.

The Institute will be facilitated by Tracy Duberman, PhD and Bob Sachs, PhD, TLD Group Board Chair and former vice president of national learning and development at Kaiser Permanente. Bob and Tracy co-authored From Competition to Collaboration: How Leaders Cultivate Partnerships to Drive Value and Transform Health which explores how health ecosystem leaders can navigate the difficult issues that arise when multiple organizations from different sectors and with different operating models, objectives, and cultures work together toward a shared purpose. By embracing HELM, the leadership philosophy explored in the Institute, participants will learn how to engage with others toward a broad purpose of enhancing health and wellness.

"We know that good leaders impact their individual organizations. Great health ecosystem leader's influence goes beyond that and makes a huge impact on population health overall," said Bob Sachs. "It is our goal, through the Institute, to help leaders focus beyond narrow organizational interests, quick results, and efficiency and to elevate their focus to enhancing health in their communities by creating a shared future, aligning stakeholders, confronting conflict, acting under uncertainty, and learning what works and what does not."

Each week of the Institute, Tracy and Bob will offer on-demand learning modules focused on a particular leadership behavior embedded in the HELM™ model along with interviews with industry luminaries. The modules will be followed by live interactive peer learning sessions and 1:1 individual coaching to help the participants work through their own HELM™ challenge as an experiential learning project. Skill and mindset development will focus on understanding others' perspectives, envisioning a new future and how to build it through partnerships, identifying stakeholders and effectively engaging them, addressing challenges and creating opportunities to solve them, and discovering which actions must be taken to drive value and transform health.

Participants from across all sectors of healthcare who participate in this 12-week course will learn from the shared experiences of industry leaders such as Rod Hochman, MD, President & CEO of Providence St. Joseph's Health; Craig Samitt, MD, MBA, Managing Director of ITO Advisors, formerly CEO, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, MN and EVP, Chief Clinical Officer, and President of Anthem's Diversified Business Group; and Joshua Ofman, MD, MSHS, President and Chief Medical Officer at GRAIL, Inc.; as well as others.

"Our health ecosystem needs many more people with the ability to foster cross-sector collaboration. This is a skill set that can be developed and I am a strong proponent of TLD Group and the HELM leadership model whether applied within an organization across departments or as a model to enhance cross-sector collaborations as we saw during the pandemic," said Institute faculty David Carmouche, MD, SVP Omnichannel Care Offerings, Walmart Health and formerly President, Ochsner Health Network and Senior Vice President, Community Care at Ochsner Health. "I have seen first-hand how an ecosystem leadership approach creates understanding and accurate perceptions and can thwart resistance barriers quickly in an effort to solve some of the most pressing issues facing our industry."
