Workshop Agenda

9:00 – 10:00 am: Purpose-Drive Board Leadership | Kimberly McNally

Uncertainty isn’t new for hospitals and health systems. It has certainly become more complex and relentless navigating the pandemic response and recovery. To build organizational resilience for uncertain times, purpose-driven board leadership is required. This session will explore a way of thinking that can help boards and executive teams manage and embrace uncertainty.

10:00 – 11:00 am: Culture Matters | Kimberly McNally

Does a healthy board culture matter? In a complex and rapidly changing business environment, the ability of individual board members to take responsibility for maintaining a strong board culture that is aligned with the organization’s strategic goals is critical to overall success. A culture of inquiry and open discussion and dialogue are the hallmarks of a healthy culture. Learn how boards can lead a healthy culture by demonstrating specific behaviors and avoiding others.

11:00 am – 12:00 pm: Tone from the Top: Strengthening the Board Chair/CEO Partnership | Kimberly McNally

Hospitals will continue to be tested in 2021 and beyond as their role in community health is amplified. Board members must partner with each other and the CEO during this time of extraordinary challenge. The tone from the top matters, and Boards are in a unique position to strengthen this partnership at a time when it’s needed more than ever. This session will offer guidance on best practices for Board Chairs and CEOs.

12:00 – 1:00 pm: Build Unstoppable Teams | Alden Mills

As a young child Alden Mills was diagnosed with asthma and was told by doctors to lead a less active life. But his Mom had other ideas for him. She continually reminded him that his limits were up to him to determine.

He took that advice to heart. Ten years later, he graduated from the United States Naval Academy. He attended Navy SEAL training. And he served with distinction as a Navy SEAL platoon commander…. three times.

After leaving the SEALs, he graduated from Carnegie Mellon business school – then he became an entrepreneur, building businesses in fitness, pet food, and security. Today, he holds more than 40 patents – and he has sold more than 10 million units of his inventions.

He’s the author of the acclaimed book, Be Unstoppable: The 8 Essential Actions to Succeed at Anything and Unstoppable Teams.
