RBMA Advanced Leadership Workshop

Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? This new program is designed for leaders who are seeking a higher-level program with strategic thinking, decision making, effective execution and healthcare finance management tools.

Effective leadership means influencing the growth of those around you, and a crucial step toward maximizing others’ potential is learning ways to maximize yours. Decision-making makes a huge impact on an organization. A leader’s operational decisions can either boost success or cumulatively cost organizations profits and value. Having a clear understanding of the revenue cycle management is crucial. Understanding and managing finances can have a major impact on the success of a practice.  

This day-long program of advanced learning will debut at 2020 Paradigm on Sunday, April 5 from 8:00 am – 3:30. At the conclusion of the full-day workshop, each participant receives a certificate of attendance.

Leading with Strong Decision Making and Execution

Leo Hopf, the University of St. Thomas 

Decisions can make or break an organization. High-level strategic choices and daily operational decisions influence our work landscapes and our professional outcomes. Often, our decisions are made without enough information and with the added complexity of human agendas and preferences. It is no wonder than many of us struggle to confidently make quality decisions and are often paralyzed or pressured into pathways of least resistance. This hands-on, three-hour morning workshop will give tools and concepts for approaching decisions. The techniques and tools shared in this workshop are useful for individuals at any level of an organization but most useful for individuals who are seeking to advance their careers. Managers and individual contributors can apply these frameworks, no matter what functional area they are in or their core responsibilities.

At the conclusion of the morning session, you can:

  • Identify how your industry is changing and determine how well you are prepared by using tools provided during the workshop
  • Determine where to place your bets for excellence, even if other things must slip
  • Define and commit to next steps that drive your strategy forward

12:30-3:30 p.m.
