Catalysis Lean Leadership Series Announced at Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center; Transforming Habits and Behaviors of Healthcare Leaders


today announced it will host a Lean Leadership Series at Richard
L. Roudebush VA Medical Center
in Indianapolis, September 26-29. The
series is a multi-day, multi-workshop event designed to teach lean
leader skills and practices. A broad range of topics are covered such as
coaching skills, the scientific method of problem solving and the key
components of enterprise excellence. CE credits are available.

The series is designed to transform healthcare professionals into
leaders who drive higher value in their organizations.

"Management in a lean organization is built on leaders who coach, ask
effective questions and solve problems," said Marta Karlov, director of
education at Catalysis. "Fostering this new kind of leadership is the
first step on healthcare's Transformation Roadmap."

The Lean Leadership Series allows participants to develop their
own learning tracks by registering for up to three of the following

  • Capturing Healthcare Value
  • Coaching for Improvement
  • Coaching for Personal Development
  • Creating a Lean Management System Overview
  • Defining and Deploying Strategy
  • Innovation in Healthcare
  • Kata: A Pattern for Continuous Improvement and Coaching
  • Principle Based Transformation
  • Go-and-See at Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center

The series blends classroom learning, gemba tours, and networking to
offer a relevant, hands-on mix of experiences.

"The content is critical for any leader who aspires to become a lean
leader," said Luke Poppish, senior lean advisor of South Shore Hospital
in Massachusetts. "This is a ‘just do it' for all organizations
struggling to find their way on their lean journey."

"Coaching for Improvement was the most valuable workshop I've ever
attended," said Leah Mitchell of Salem Health. "As an executive
healthcare leader, it caused me to reflect on how I lead and how to
develop others."
