Transforming the way you live and work in the world

GISC Healthcare Group

Transforming the way you live and work in the world
The healthcare industry is in a state of unprecedented change. Long-held constants – models of care, reimbursement arrangements, affiliations and even the very roles of healthcare professionals – are transforming. Simultaneously, financial margins are shrinking while demands for clinical services must continue without interruption.

Leaders must find ways to align their stakeholders with new marketplace expectations. Managers and service providers must promote both the adaptive and technical changes required for their jobs by learning new skills and operating in an environment of greater transparency, interdependence and demand. They must hold themselves and others to greater degrees of accountability.

Utilizing a unique relational and strengths-based approach, GISC works with leaders and service providers alike to become more accountable and adaptable in this time of profound change. Clinicians, managers and leaders alike are able to mobilize energy for increased patient engagement and improved systems of care while experiencing a renewed sense of purpose, connection and community.

Coaching and Training for Healthcare Administrative and Clinical Leaders
GISC has identified the core leadership competencies that are required to succeed in this emerging new world of healthcare. Our coaching and training will help you to:

  • Effectively facilitate change
  • Foster teamwork across disciplines and functions
  • Coach and mentor others in service of organizational results and personal growth and development
  • Increase personal and professional effectiveness

Innovative Curriculum • Customized Programs
GISC has created a healthcare leadership development curriculum, incorporating a unique synthesis of medical, leadership, relational, and organizational development expertise for a specialized learning offering for healthcare leaders. GISC also offers customized programs that may be designed around the unique needs of your organization. Programs provide intensive training for those at any level of the organization and may be followed by ongoing coaching.

Experience that counts
GISC’s coaching model and training methodology has been researched and tested in healthcare settings with demonstrated effectiveness. Our immersion in healthcare includes an ongoing partnership with Southcentral Foundation, a native-run primary care system in Anchorage, Alaska. Our collaboration, which included coaching and training to promote effective and innovative team relationships and establish a mentoring culture, contributed to that organization receiving the 2011 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. The same coaching model and training methodology can elevate your practice or organization to new levels of organization-wide effectiveness and engagement, satisfaction and quality of care.
