Course Begins Fall 2018 in Lewiston, ME

Enrollment Limited to 20 APPs

We are delighted to announce that enrollment is now underway for the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership's inaugural Provider Executive Leadership Institute (PELI) specifically for Advanced Practice Professionals.

The role of Advanced Practice Professionals in the delivery of healthcare services has never been more important.  APPs are a vital and precious resource in every corner of our state and their integral inclusion in care teams requires them to pull upon leadership and management skills often not covered in their training.

The Hanley Center has heard loud and clear the desire and need for a leadership development course specifically for APPs across Maine.  We have tailored our well-respected physician PELI Foundational Course to suit the leadership development challenges that Advanced Practice Professionals face. Participants will gain knowledge, skills, and tools in the following core competency areas, empowering them to lead and transform our healthcare delivery system.

  • Systems awareness
  • Strategic focus
  • Management/business skills
  • Self-awareness
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Healthcare trends
  • Teamwork and collaboration

The Course consists of six two-evening sessions and four 90-minute intersessions taking place over one year. The two-evening sessions take place on consecutive evenings once every other month, with the intersessions scheduled on the off-months.

  • Do you need to bring new and innovative ideas and strategies to your leadership?
  • Do you want to revitalize your ability to lead transformative change?
  • Are you looking for a way to build and rekindle your Hanley Center network of colleagues?

In collaboration with Jon Chilingerian, Professor at Brandeis University and key academic partner in the Hanley Center’s Physician Executive Leadership Institute Advanced Course, the Hanley Center is offering a three-day seminar series that explores innovation-based strategies as a source of competitive advantage in an industry with strict regulation and limited financial resources. Innovation is a vast subject that requires strategic thinking, reflective practice, experimentation, parallel organization, and organizational learning. We examine how to design and build organizations and teams that excel at innovation.

Participants will analyze the principles of leadership that they can apply both within and outside of established organizations, as well as develop an appreciation of the complex issues related to founding, launching, and financing new service ideas, process improvements, and entrepreneurial ventures.

Planned Series Includes:

The Courage to Listen. Keynote Address by Rev. Jeffrey Brown. Rev. Brown is the man behind the “Boston Miracle,” the dramatic drop in youth homicide rate from 76 to zero in the 1990s. A dynamic and inspirational speaker, Rev Brown shares the thinking and out-of-the-box strategies behind this ‘miracle’ that transformed the culture in youth gangs in Boston. We will hear how he accomplished his goals and how he brought innovative thinking and action to this challenge in this inspirational session.

Developing a Strategic Service Vision, Design Thinking & Leading Innovative and Transformative Culture Change in Complex Health Care Organizations. Every organization needs to change quickly as its customer needs, work processes and technology changes. To keep from falling behind leaders should focus attention on process innovation. Through case studies and a computer-based simulation, we will focus on ideas for a strategic service vision: targeted market segments, well-defined service concepts, focused operating strategy and an effective delivery system. We will also talk about the elements of design thinking and prototyping ideas as well as exploring how leadership behavior can influence health system performance across a region. Professor Chilingerian, lead faculty in the PELI Advanced Course and ranked as one of the top 20 teachers of health management in the world, will lead this seminar. He has lectured across the globe including, Armenia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Denmark, England, Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa, and Spain. He is founding director of the MD-MBA Program in Health Management with Tufts Medical School (1995-present), which today is the largest MD-MBA program in the United States with over 200 graduates.

Stakeholder Alignment and Innovation Systems: Professor Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld leads research on agile institutions and teaches classes on strategy and operations at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. An award-winning author of books and journal articles on high performance work systems, transformation in labor-management relations, negotiations and conflict resolution, economic development, and engineering systems, Professor Gershenfeld shares concepts and tools to build capacity in multi-stakeholder collaboration and stakeholder engagement and advanced methods, visualizations, and analytics for continuous stakeholder alignment. He will also dive deeply into concepts of innovation systems including education and approaches used by serial innovators, the challenges of uncertainty and power dynamics associated with innovation in organizations, using innovation in a market context, and anticipating future innovation in the context of platform multipliers. Professor Gershenfeld uses simulations, case studies, and other engaging teaching methodologies to bring these concepts to life.

Entrepreneurial Leadership and Innovation: Entrepreneurial leaders are not only those with innate talents—these skills can be learned! Professor Carole Carlson shares key concepts in entrepreneurship and business models that foster new business and service line development. Using a case study approach, Professor Carlson introduces the class to frameworks, techniques, and business models to build health leaders’ capacity to develop and test new ideas. At Brandeis, Professor Carlson teaches courses in Strategic Management, Social Entrepreneurship, and Team Consulting. She is the Concentration Chair for the Social Entrepreneurship and Impact Management concentration in the Heller MBA program. She was the 2013 recipient of the Heller Teaching Award and a 2014 recipient of the Davis Teaching and Learning Fellowship. She has a significant business consulting and coaching practice and works with the Harvard Business school in delivering online and in-person courses with business executives. She also advises the Christensen Center for Teaching and Learning at the Harvard Business School on teaching effectiveness.

Each learning sessions will enable participants to analyze principles of strategic thinking to innovative ideas in healthcare management; analyze how to move innovative ideas from concept to implementation; and develop skills for leading change.         

COST:  $1600 for the SERIES. 

To enable a true cohort experience, enrollment must be for the full seminar series.  Thus, enrollment in individual sessions is not an option.

Last Thursday, August 4, the Hanley Team visited Peak's Island for dinner and an afternoon together. Resilience is a part of our Leadership Development Courses and the Maine Islands are a fantastic place to practice. After visiting both of the beaches on the island, the Inn at Peak's Island hosted our dinner and we got to know each other better outside of our work together. We returned refreshed and looking forward to a busy September.

    [content] => 

Judiann Ferretti Smith has been named Executive Director of the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership.

A resident of Yarmouth, Smith is a highly experienced healthcare executive and attorney who has held key leadership roles at Spurwink for the past 18 years. She succeeds James Harnar, who was a key figure in the founding of the Hanley Center in 2002 and who has served as its Executive Director since 2005. Harnar will retire in May following a 30-year career in Maine’s health sector.

Smith currently serves as Vice President of Strategy and Government Relations at Spurwink, a large behavioral health organization with more than 800 employees serving children, families & adults from most of Maine’s counties. She previously held senior management positions as Director of Human Resources and Director of Regulatory and Legislative Analysis. Smith’s key focus over much of the past decade has involved building trusting collaborative relationships aimed at positive changes in healthcare across organizations, governmental entities and industry silos, important work that will transfer well into Hanley Center’s mission and future.

A graduate of the Hanley Center’s statewide Health Leadership Development program, Smith currently serves on the boards of the Maine Health Management Coalition and the Southern Maine Midcoast Chamber. She also serves on the MaineCare Advisory Committee, as the Vice President of the Child & Family Provider Network, and co-chairs the Children’s Coalition of the Maine Association of Community Service Providers.

Smith’s experience also includes six years on the Yarmouth School Committee as well as participation on various advisory groups and committees impacting healthcare, education and non-profits including the Maine Quality Counts Behavioral Health Committee and the Portland Regional Chamber Advocacy Committee. A native of New Jersey, she holds a Bachelor of Science degree from St. Bonaventure University and a law degree from Suffolk University School of Law. Smith resides in Yarmouth with her husband and three children.

“Judiann Smith is a highly respected leader who is known throughout Maine for her intelligence, integrity, energy and passion,” said the chair of the Hanley Center Board of Directors, Dr. Sean Hanley. “We believe Judiann is the right person to lead our organization toward further growth and greater impact in the years ahead.”

Over the past dozen years, the Hanley Center has established a presence as Maine’s leading health leadership organization. It is believed to be one of the nation’s only independent, statewide organizations focused on the goal of building a culture of greater trust and collaboration as the health sector undergoes a period of unprecedented transformation.

Nearly 600 healthcare leaders and clinicians have enrolled in Hanley Center programs including its 16-day Health Leadership Development program and the Physician Executive Leadership Institute. The Physician Executive Leadership Institute is a large and unique initiative aimed at preparing a substantial percentage of Maine’s practicing physicians to take on roles of greater influence and authority in efforts to improve care and moderate the growth of healthcare costs. Many other leaders have participated in Hanley Leadership Forums and other events and projects that have brought together diverse stakeholders to address complex issues that require a high degree of collaboration.

The Hanley Center is named for the late Dr. Daniel Hanley, a nationally-known leader who headed the Maine Medical Association for a quarter century and served as Bowdoin College’s physician for 34 years.

Through its professional development programs and its growing work across Maine and in other states, the Hanley Center carries forward Dr. Hanley’s leadership legacy.

The Center’s retiring Executive Director, James Harnar of Portland, was Vice President of Public Affairs at the Maine Hospital Association beginning in the mid-1980’s, later served as President of the Maine Health Information Center and was a key member of the team that built HealthInfoNet, Maine’s statewide electronic health information exchange.

    [title] => Want to Host a Talented Maine Undergraduate as a Summer Intern?
    [content] => 

 

Over the past three years the Hanley Center has matched a growing number of smart, motivated and hardworking college undergraduates with meaningful summer jobs at health and healthcare organizations across Maine. 

 

They've worked at Maine Medical Center and Mercy Hospital, at Sweetser and Maine CDC, and atInterMed, Maine Ortho, Maine Veterans’ Home, Penobscot Community Health Care and here at the Hanley Center.

 

The Hanley Center developed its Summer Internship program as a partnership with over a dozen Maine colleges and universities.  Our goal is to help talented students pursue health and healthcare careers here in Maine once they have finished their college education.  The goal of the program is to help the Intern learn about career opportunities and develop contacts that will put them on the path toward a successful career---without leaving Maine.  These are highly motivated, hard-working students at the top of their class who are selected and matched to host organizations through a highly competitive application process.  Sites find that students are available to come on board and make valuable, positive contributions to the organization over the course of the summer.

 

The Hanley Center is currently looking for organizations to host a summer intern this year. These are paid, full-time positions typically lasting 8-10 weeks. If you are interested in being a host, click here to learn more.  We will be holding two informational calls for prospective sites Tuesday, January 27th at noon and Wednesday, February 11th at 7:30am.  To dial in to the informational call please use 1-866-740-1260 access code 5231501.
