Title: Leading Change in Healthcare: How We Built Individual and Collective Change Capability to Survive and Thrive through the COVID-19 Crisis, and Beyond

Presenters: Barbara Trautlein and Mitzi Vázquez-Long


As Warren Buffet said, “it’s only when the tide goes out that you learn who’s been swimming naked!” By proactively building an enabling foundation and common language to lead change up, down, and across the system, University Hospitals of Ohio set itself up for success in weathering the COVID-19 crisis far more effectively than many healthcare systems, emerging stronger than before. Join us to learn how UH built change leadership (not merely “change management”) capabilities. We’ll explore how we trained over 1,500 leaders-at-all-levels, helped the leaders leverage their learnings on-the-job, and are reinforcing for sustainment. We will share results, which range from leading through the COVID-19 crisis, to measurable progress on specific change initiatives, to furthering the mission of the organization by improvements in patient satisfaction, to fostering a more agile and collaborative culture. Attendees will learn how to complement and extend their current focus on “managing change” and “developing leaders” by adding the missing ingredient – that is, concerted focus on “leading change” and “developing change-capable leaders.” Moreover, they will discover how “learning to lead change” promotes not only more effective change outcomes, but also facilitates the achievement of bottom-line business goals and organizational mission/values. Actions taken and lessons learned are broadly applicable across industries.

Skill Level: Advanced (5+ years of Change Management Experience)

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore a “Change Intelligent®” methodology to proactively build individual and collective “change leadership” capabilities.
  • Discover how engaging the Heart (focusing on people – communicating and collaborating), enlightening the Head (focusing on purpose – mission and strategy), and equipping the Hands (focusing on process – tactics and tools) propels positive and meaningful change by fostering a common language that facilitates alignment and teamwork up, down, across, and even outside the organization.
  • Gain insight into simple, powerful, relevant, and actionable strategies to help those they serve become more competent and confident - and less stressed and frustrated - leaders of change.
