HealthInsight was invited to facilitate a pre-conference Learning Lab to share key lessons from our Total Cost of Care (TCOC) work, a multi-year and multi-stakeholder initiative striving to increase transparency of health care costs in Oregon. Together with our Board Chair, Pam Mariea-Nason, and Vice-Chair, Katie Dobler, we presented “Regional Strategies to Collaboratively Measure Affordability,” and helped participants develop their own road maps for building meaningful cross-sector partnerships and leveraging existing resources to address affordability in their communities.
It was exciting to bring Oregon’s TCOC work to a larger audience and engage in thought-provoking discussions about the role of relationships and collaboration in system transformation. Throughout the forum, from the poignant keynote addresses to the engaging workshops, I noticed a common theme on the power of our “humanness” – how tapping into our humanity and employing relational strategies to connect with others is essential for building trust, enabling action and motivating real change.
While there’s no way I could fit all of my learnings from the forum into this blog post, I’d like to share a summary of the themes I heard over and over again from presenters. Below are 10 principles and behaviors that anyone can apply on their journey to becoming better leaders.
