The 2018 Executive Leadership program includes an event or self‐study project once a month, including:
1. Leading Yourself: Personal Development
Before you can effectively lead others, you need to be able to lead, and know, yourself. To help you stand out in your organization and in your industry as a leader, the program will begin with a
discussion on individual leadership skills and goals for the program, and strategic career planning led by Jimmy Lewis. The class will also come together during the summer for a Leadership Retreat for additional education in personal strengths and weaknesses, personality profiles, goal setting, and CEO qualifications.

2. Leading The Business: Healthcare Industry Training
Participation in various live HomeTown workshops, often outside of the primary area of current positions, to help participants gain cross‐departmental knowledge of the many facets of healthcare. This includes workshops held for groups such as Human Resources, Nursing Leaders, Health IT, CEO Day at the Capitol, or Revenue Cycle. It also includes participation and special leadership class breakouts at both Spring and Fall Conference, including closed leadership class discussions led by Jimmy Lewis to learn about key issues affecting hospital transformation, as well as personal
skills and strategic planning. Two additional leadership class sessions will be held throughout the year.

3. Leading Others: Management Skills Development through the HarvardManageMentor Program
Ongoing online self‐paced course material made available through the Harvard ManageMentor program, Harvard Business Publishing’s on‐demand leadership development resource. 6 areas of focus will be included in either Leading Others or Leading Your Business.
