GETTYSBURG, Pa. (August 8, 2021) — On August 12, 2021 at 1:00 pm EDT, OPEN MINDS will host a web forum, Making Strategy Work – Mission, Growth, & Sustainability, available free of charge courtesy of the Providers’ Resource Center for Behavioral Health and Human Services (PRC) powered by Qualifacts + Credible. This event will showcase how to create a vision for the community that is engaging, efficient, and effective.

Planned strategic change is a delicate balancing act of managing the present and the future in domains of finance, customer service, and internal efficiency and doing so without losing the commitment of board or staff. It’s no wonder that McKinsey studies have shown that as high as 70% of these change efforts fail – even pre-COVID. The pandemic has doubled the stakes and speed of the game. Margins are thinner, competitors are stronger and bigger, change is more urgent, and staff we need to lead this charge are tired.

If you are looking to assess your organization’s strengths and needs to help revise your mission, don’t miss this valuable presentation, Making Strategy Work – Mission, Growth, & Sustainability, on August 12 at 1:00 pm ET, featuring OPEN MINDS Senior Associate, Ray Wolfe, J.D. and Step by Step, Inc.’s President/Chief Executive Officer, Eric Lindey. During this session, they will discuss new day to day metrics and management habits that can help in balancing the present and future.

Raymond “Ray” Wolfe, J.D. brings over 40 years of experience in the health and human services sector to the OPEN MINDS team. His areas of expertise include managed care and value-based reimbursement models, financial analysis and management, mergers and acquisitions, CCBHC certification, integrated care, performance improvement, and strategic planning.

Eric Lindey has worked in a management capacity with county government, supports coordination, and provider organizations throughout his 30-year career in human services. He was the founder and CEO of The Hab Group before merging it with a large non-profit provider.

This webinar is available free of charge thanks to the generous sponsorship of Qualifacts + Credible. However, attendees must register in advance.

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.
