The Great Rethink: Challenging Our Assumptions About the Future

A report from the 2022 Thought Leader Forum

Thought Leader Forum

The new skill required of health care leaders today is the ability to drive transformational change optimizing our core businesses while positioning our organizations for big, future-oriented moves. But where do we begin?

The 2022 Thought Leader Forum, “The Great Rethink: Challenging Our Assumptions About the Future,” hosted at the SHSMD Connections 2022, addressed transformational change and how senior leaders are testing assumptions on some core questions to push their organizations forward:

  • What does our service portfolio need to be?
  • What does our community actually need?
  • How do we truly differentiate our position in the marketplace?
  • How can our brand better communicate our strategic intent?
  • What is the culture we have today compared to what we want to create?
  • How do we get our talent excited about the future as we manage the present as best we can?
