Developing internal talent is often easier said than done, especially with limited resources and when starting a program from scratch. In this Circle Elite Executive Roundtable, Melissa Fox, Chief Operating Officer of Acenda Health, will provide an overview of their innovative new leadership development program, which is designed to engage key staff as well as develop their competencies in business management. The format is flexible and designed for management staff who may not otherwise receive this level of development and is also a strategically important tool to support employee retention. This program also seeks to bring internal development tools to smaller organizations that are normally only found at large organizations.

Executive attendees will learn:

  • The basics of the Acenda ADVANCE Leadership Development Program
  • Success stories from the program
  • How to start developing their own training program

The resurgence of the COVID Delta variant has certainly created new challenges for the country and for our families. Fortunately, the available COVID vaccinations have been very successful in preventing symptomatic infections and illness. But I did want to let you know that our team at OPEN MINDS is committed to making our executive events as safe as possible and have an active risk management plan in place. I wanted to share with you the key elements of our plan:

We will continue to monitor any changes in the CDC recommendations for the continued safety of the public.
