Empowering New Leaders

The Safety Learning System® (SLS) paired with the SLS Collaborative will guide you in a new leadership role throughout the process of improvement. Our Leadership Development coaching goes beyond the implementation of SLS to helping you access hidden talents & to tap into your natural leadership skills.

Leadership Responsibilities

Adopt Systems-Thinking

Systems-thinking is recognizing that the hospital is a system in which everyone is accountable for its failures. We aim to fix system issues and not provider issues.

Encourage a Safety Culture

Creating a culture is what separates a leader from a manager. Leaders should foster a culture of safety in which providers protect not only patients but each other.

Change with Grace

GRAC3E™ is our change methodology that aims to maintain momentum, enhance the experience, & relieve burnout among reviewers.

Facilitate MultiLens Discussion

Leaders are responsible for arranging & facilitating regular multi-disciplinary & -specialty case discussions where providers come to consensus over issues identified.

Practice 'Tough Love'

Leaders should practice 'tough love' for their organization because we all know it could be better for patients & providers. Honest & vigorous advocacy is key.

Select Patient Cohorts

The Safety Learning System® can be used to review any cohort of interest. Many of our Collaborative members start with mortality review to identify pervasive issues.

Lead with Spirit

We feel that the ideal leader embraces the values SPIR4IT™. Our leadership values aim to foster confidence, competency, & calmness in spearheading something new.
