The Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is delighted to announce that enrollment is now underway for our Provider Executive Leadership Institute (PELI) specifically for Advanced Practice Professionals.

A First-in-the-Nation Program

Hanley’s Provider Executive Leadership Institute (PELI) is a first-in-the-nation program that develops Provider and provider leaders through intensive, national-caliber professional development coursework. Courses are available for individuals and through organizations that purchase a PELI course.

PELI is divided into two courses: Foundational and Advanced. The Foundational Course is aimed at Providers and other health professionals who are beginning to take on roles that require management and leadership skills, while the Advanced Course provides a higher level of personal and professional development.

Systems Awareness

Systems awareness is founded on community concern, sustainable productivity, and systems thinking. It recognizes that the Provider’s practice, the healthcare delivery network, and the local and statewide community welfare comprise an interrelated system in which decisions made at one level affect all other levels.

Strategic Focus

Strategic focus measures the creative use of power, effective decision-making, and the ability to influence systems and policies. Strategic focus will develop the Provider leader to be purposeful, visionary, goal-directed so that he or she may develop a track record of goal achievement, execution, and high performance.

Key Management/Business Skills

The area of Key Management/Business Skills will teach the Provider leader to understand financial statements and what they say about an organization, how to use financial ratios, and prepare an effective budget.


The Self-Awareness competency focuses on ongoing professional and personal development that is expressed through high integrity leadership.

Health Care Trends

The Health Care Trend competency teaches the emerging models of health care especially as they relate to Provider-hospital relationships.

Teamwork and Collaboration

The Teamwork and Collaboration competency will teach the Provider leader how to foster high-performance teamwork among team members under their supervision, across the organization, and within teams in which they participate.
