why

The luxury of time is over...

The recent crisis has made one thing clear. The age of personalization is in full force. At the moment we're in a world of chaos. but it didn't start in 2020. It just accelerated the inevitable; the fall of outdated standards and leadership.

This pandemic has given us a front row seat to the real tensions that exist between the age of standardization and today’s age of personalization. We’re witnessing the end of an ideology that believed that transparency, authenticity and vulnerability were weaknesses while secrecy, playing the part and pretending to know the answers were strengths.

The #BlackLivesMatter movement has awakened people the world over whose individuality has been taken away from them. With yet another flawed outdated system that was created by old-school, efficiency-based, standardized thinking leaders – George Floyd’s murder reveals not only the dangers and injustices of outdated systems, but also the failed leadership and lack of human dignity in society.

Standardization has finally lost because personalization has revealed its limitations.

how

We can’t just ditch standards – they are important. Standardization creates efficiency, and that was a fine goal in a world where things were predictable. Tomorrow will not bring more efficiency, but rather more chaos.

Organizations that survive are the ones who can navigate chaos with resilience. But efficiency does not guarantee resilience. Resilience requires adaptability, and adaptability requires us to embrace agility, experimentation and empathy.

We must honor today’s age of personalization. We can’t expect people to change their mindset, attitude and behavior if the outdated systems and policies remain the same.

When we turn diversity into inclusion, we stop being tribal and start seeing each other as human.

Inclusion is not about only acknowledging and respecting differences. Inclusion happens when we stop judging people for how they look, think and act and start taking the time to see and know who people are as humans. Inclusion is a system for making sure the organization is welcoming at every level to every individual.

When we shift focus from brand identity to individual identities, we invigorate our shared missions by elevating individual contribution.

There’s nothing less dignified than putting the interests of a brand or an institution over the interests of the individuals whose blood, sweat and tears make that institution great. What is most meaningful to people is to know they have a chance to contribute their unique skills and strengths – no matter the mission.

When we loosen our grip on results and activate methods for leading in a way that honors our Age of Personalization, we become healthy.

When you let people break free from the standards of the past and attack challenges in their own way, you open up new possibilities. You give people their dignity back. You restore and honor their identities.

The Virtual Summit Experience

Hosted by Fairfield University College of Arts and Sciences and Powered by LightSpeedVT ™, this virtual summit will provide a unique learning experience that will combine thought provoking discussions with artistic storytelling by the QuickCenter for the Arts at Fairfield University – all that in a seamless, safe and interactive online environment to all attendees and speakers.

Our discussion will be centered on the intersection between the Healthcare Industry, Corporate America and Higher Education that must seek more interconnectedness and interdependence than ever before:

  • October 28 - Healthcare Industry: Day 1 will explore how today’s crises have accelerated what a “person-centered” approach to care delivery means, and equally how healthcare leadership has an opportunity to evolve its mindset to best serve the business of health. Everyone’s experience with healthcare has changed overnight: all people have been affected by COVID-19 either directly or through the fear of it, while all industry professionals (clinical and non-clinical) have experienced degrees of chaos within the workplace and uncertainty about the future.

  • October 29- Corporate America: Day 2 will explore how today’s crises has accelerated the collapse of traditional corporate standards in today’s more personalized world and how the balance between standardization and personalization can exist.

  • October 30 - Higher Education: Higher Education: Day 3 will explore how today’s crises has accelerated what a “student-centered” approach means to curriculum, teaching, research and the forging of corporate partnerships to enrich the student experience and their readiness for the future. Everyone’s experience with higher education has changed overnight for an unpredictable amount of time. How can we meet the challenge, and how can we use the opportunity to shape a better future?

Topics for Discussion

1. Telehealth Digital Therapeutics and Virtual Realities.jpg

01|

Telehealth, Digital Therapeutics and Virtual Realities

Digital transformation is happening, ready or not. COVID-19 has placed various remote care technologies at the forefront of care delivery. The rapid adoption of telehealth by patients and new reimbursement models are driving physician support that just a year ago were met with tremendous resistance. This session will address lessons learned from healthcare providers who are adopting personalized care in today’s digital world, and how large employers are adopting digital therapeutics to help their employees become more self-directed with their adherence and prevention.

2.Healthcare Leadership of the Future.jpg

02|

Healthcare Leadership of the Future

Healthcare can no longer operate in a silo because it’s no longer a vertical, but a horizontal industry – it’s interconnected with every industry and with every community institution. Leaders must adopt circular vision as the ecosystem for care delivery expands beyond the boundaries of healthcare to more integrated partnerships with large employers, academic institutions and a variety of community partners. In this session, we will unpack the new mindset, skills and strategies necessary for navigating these seismic changes. We’ll explore the performance metrics and methods required for leaders who need to engage increasingly diverse populations of people to pursue clinical and non- clinical careers, and to become advocates for their own health and for the health of their families and communities.

3. Unpacking the New Dimensions of Personalized Care.jpg

03|

Unpacking the New Dimensions of Personalized Care

The long and wide-ranging list of COVID-19 symptoms is a first-hand demonstration of how individualized our health is and how personalized healthcare must become. No two patients experience the disease in the same way. Caregivers face the ultimate paradox of needing to follow rigid standards of care to maintain highest levels of health and safety, while personalizing their approach to the patient in front of them. Embracing the humanity of a person-centered approach is not easy, but it’s the most critical challenge we will tackle as personalization is at the core of how we must change the ways we think about patient experience. This session will examine lessons learned from COVID-19 and the rapid evolution of personalized care at a time when patients want to be seen, known and treated as individuals.

4. Healthcare Transformation Has Reached Its Tipping Point.jpg

04|

Healthcare’s Transformation Has Reached Its Tipping Point

Healthcare leaders are experiencing massive disruption and financial losses due to the pandemic. Lost revenue, interrupted and unpredictable cash flow, pay cuts, unprecedented levels of stress for clinical and non-clinical employees alike – these are just a few of the many challenges facing healthcare organizations. Every level of operations has been affected. We need massive transformation, renewal and reinvention across the board – for everything from patient experience, workforce safety and productivity, consumerism, supply chain stabilization, talent management, financial strategies and board composition that must be reimagined quickly. In this session, we’ll discuss what transformation looks like and what resources are needed to make it happen.

5. Inclusion as a Growth Strategy.jpg

05|

Inclusion as a Growth Strategy

Inclusion is not just about who gets hired and who doesn’t. It’s about how associates are allowed to grow or not, within their organization. Inclusion is about how people are allowed to collaborate or not, across the boundaries of departments and functions in an organization. It’s about how people are allowed to experiment or not, within their own jobs. Inclusion also relates to the marketplace and how we engage with patients, supply chain partners and the communities we serve. Inclusion is about how people are allowed to contribute to the health of our communities on a large scale. It’s about a mindset of constructively interrupting our auto-pilot thoughts about who belongs where, doing what. This session will challenge the current cost center approach to inclusion and why it must become a growth strategy. We will examine the strategic implications of the Cultural Demographic Shift that has reached its tipping point on the heels of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

1. Technology or People.jpg

01|

What’s Driving Today’s Transformation: Technology or People?

Which of the two is more important in today’s age of personalization? Where should the strategic focus be during these uncertain times? Personalization almost automatically means technology. That’s because many of the ways to achieve personalization involves tech innovations. So, who should be driving this transformation – someone who knows technology? Or someone who knows the customer? This session will showcase two case studies from two entirely different industries to show how organizations can use both technology and people to address crisis and achieve transformation.

2. Leadership After the Coronavirus Pandemic.jpg

02|

Leadership After the Coronavirus Pandemic and Social Unrest

We’ve been inundated with statements from leaders and brands declaring that Black Lives Matter. Do you believe they mean it? There’s reason to be skeptical that these statements will lead to real change. We’ve heard promises before. And either they didn’t actually mean it, or they didn’t realize how complicated it is to change an entrenched system. Each organization, each department, each function, each team: these are systems designed to produce the exact results they’re getting. In this session, we will discuss how to examine what it is about your current system that has been making it exclusive for so long, and what you can do to achieve genuine inclusion.

3. Reinventing Talent Management.jpg

03|

Reinventing Talent Management

The pandemic has thrown organizations into panic when it comes to talent management – from furloughing, to reallocations to moving people to work from their homes. Further, the injustices expressed through the #BlackLivesMatter movement have added another layer of complexity for leaders trying to assess and address systems that traditionally have supported exclusion rather than inclusion. There’s an urgent need to reexamine the old, outdated mechanics and metrics of talent management. We need to evolve the way we manage and evaluate an individual’s growth and development. This session will dive deep into the way organizations must shift their approach from one that values efficiency to one that elevates individual capacity. This will demand an immediate overhaul of an organization’s talent competency models, evaluation of skills forecasting, the role of people analytics, and new methods by which talent is recruited, developed, and retained based on the specific needs of the business.

4. Reimagining Corporate Strategy.jpg

04|

Reimagining Corporate Strategy Where Predictability is Unknown

Without strategy, change is merely substitution not evolution. But how do you create a strategy for your organization’s future, when the future is so unpredictable? The strategies that successfully helped you get where you are – they are no longer relevant for a future in which entire industries are shifting from being verticals to horizontals. In this session, we’ll discuss what that means for your organization’s future, how these new horizontals will help us move from the extremes to the center, and how to determine strategy when consumer and consumption behaviors are now defined by your consumers.

5. Overhaul and Restoration of Corporate.jpg

05|

The Overhaul and Restoration of Corporate America

It’s hard to let go of the old, comfortable, and usual ways of doing things, isn’t it? During today’s crises, corporations are still trying to standardize everyone – their people, their customers, their partners – and those standards usually result in extremes. After a day exploring how standardization traps hold us back, we’ll dedicate a session to identifying our steps toward overhaul and restoration. We’ll investigate how and why we’ve been holding onto standardization, and learn to let go of the extremes that fail leadership in the age of personalization. We will explore the renewal and reinvention of Corporate America and the five necessary shifts to drive more organic and sustainable growth in today’s more personalized world.

1. How Must Colleges and Universities Reinvent.jpg

01|

How Must Colleges and Universities Reinvent Themselves?

We’re in the process of reinvention whether we like it or not. Post-COVID will not look like pre-COVID. What should you be using as a guide for the decisions you’ll be making over the next year? In this session we’ll explore opportunities and metrics for defining and igniting your institution’s reinvention. Are student measures like GPAs and course evaluations still relevant? What about ratings based on job placement rates or alumni giving? Do accreditation processes and university rankings inspire transformation or hold you back from taking chances?

2. Leadership in HigherEducation.jpg

02|

Leadership in Higher-Education

During a time of multiple crises that are threatening both fiscal and cultural survival of academic institutions – what kinds of leadership skills are needed most? How can administrators support faculty who have to teach in new ways and students who have to learn in new ways? In this session we’ll talk with leaders who are developing their abilities to be more agile, more experimental and more empathetic during this time of uncertainty. We’ll explore the shifts necessary for leading in a way that honors today’s more personalized world.

3. Enriching the Student Experience .jpg

03|

Enriching the Student Experience and Their Readiness for the Future

The in-person, on-campus experience has always been central to the vitality of college life. A university becomes part of a student’s identity in unique ways, and much of that happens as a result of the life they live while attending classes and living on campus. In this session we will discuss student engagement opportunities that foster interconnectivity, personalized inquiry, and resilience as a way to prepare soon-to-be graduates for the ambiguous challenges and opportunities of the future. We’ll also look beyond the pandemic to explore what the student journey will look like in the age of personalization.

4. Forging of Corporate Community Partnerships .jpg

04|

Forging of Corporate & Community Partnerships to Close Workforce Knowledge & Skill Gaps

Nearly two-thirds of employers say they struggle to hire the talent they need. There are several reasons: technology changes so fast it’s hard to keep up, the most experienced and skilled workers are retiring, there’s a shortage of qualified candidates in the pipeline. For colleges and universities, this is both a wake-up call and an opportunity. With such shortages, employers are less strict about college degree requirements and are motivated, potential partners for universities for co-designing courses and experiential learning programs that prepare students for highly valued roles. In this session, we will explore the value of partnerships with employers and community organizations to help prepare students for thriving careers, with expertise and skills that are in demand.

5. Higher Education New Virtual Reality.jpg

05|

Higher Education’s New Virtual Reality

What happens when our tried and true methods shift abruptly and involuntarily? Administrators and faculty have debated the merits of online learning for years, and now COVID-19 has forced the issue: every institution is online, at least partly and at least temporarily. How will we know if this recent mass migration online is working? Will the classroom ever go back to the way it was? What does this mean for the future of higher education? In this session we’ll think through some of the foundational challenges of the new ubiquity of the virtual classroom: whether or not to re-evaluate tuition, making online learning as rich as the classroom experience, bridging systemic gaps in digital skills and access to technology, and instructional inclusivity support to connect students and instructors across learning styles and personal backgrounds.

Rebekah Gee

Beyond Boundaries

Rebekah_big.jpg

Rebekah Gee

Beyond Boundaries

What is she solving for?

I always strive to see the third way. Taking the solutions that have been proposed but tweaking or combining them in such a way that it creates a new path forward.

Background

Dr. Rebekah Gee is an Obstetrician/Gynecologist and CEO of Health Care Services for LSU Health. She is the former Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health, the state’s largest agency with a budget of $14 billion. Her oversight responsibilities included public health and other direct service programs for citizens in need such as behavioral health, developmental disabilities, aging and adult services, emergency preparedness, and the Medicaid program.

Under Dr. Gee’s leadership, over 500,000 Louisianans became newly insured under Louisiana’s Medicaid expansion, and for the first time, many started receiving much needed primary and preventive health care. Her Medicaid expansion work also resulted in the launch of a dashboard to measure access to healthcare services, which has become a national model used in other states. She has been a national leader in tackling pharmaceutical pricing, including spearheading an innovative effort to eliminate hepatitis C in Louisiana by negotiating with manufacturers on a subscription model for drug access.

Dr. Gee has also led national discussions on maternal mortality and established one of the first state-run perinatal quality collaboratives focusing on maternal mortality. As a result of her efforts, complications due to heavy bleeding—the leading preventable cause of maternal death, have been reduced by 32% in the past two years. Because of her efforts, from 2016 to 2019 the state saw a 32% drop in the severe health consequences of bleeding in moms who are giving birth.

Dr. Gee is an obstetrician/gynecologist and brings a caregiver’s perspective to the people she serves. In addition, she is a trained policy expert who has served in numerous state and national policy roles. Prior to her role as Secretary, she served as the director for the Birth Outcomes Initiative. Her work on birth outcomes led the charge to decrease infant mortality and prematurity statewide – this resulted in a 25 percent reduction in infant mortality; an 85 percent drop in elective deliveries before 39 weeks; and a 10% drop in NICU admissions statewide. In 2017 Dr. Gee was elected to the National Academy of Medicine.

She is the mother of five energetic children and lives in New Orleans, where she continues to see patients.

Teri Fontenot

Intuitive Fixer

What is she solving for?

I am a 'fixer'. I dislike seeing innocent people and vulnerable animals suffer, and want to do whatever I can as quickly as possible to create solutions that improve quality of life and strengthen organizations. I also prefer to make informed, timely decisions over perfect ones that are often delayed due to the need to fully analyze or gather more information. Intuition and experience are powerful attributes.

Background

Teri Fontenot, FACHE, is CEO Emeritus of Woman’s Hospital. She was the President and CEO for 23 years until her retirement in March 2019. Teri began her career at Woman’s in 1992 as chief financial officer and became CEO in 1996.

Teri led tremendous growth and development at Woman’s, including a $340 million replacement campus that opened in August 2012 with increased capacity for service expansion. Recent notable achievements include a strategic partnership with Mary Bird Perkins-Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center to open the nation’s only specialized breast and gynecologic cancer facility in one location. The Birth Center of Baton Rouge, a midwife model of care facility, opened on Woman’s campus in late 2018 to provide a continuum to the hospital’s core obstetrical service.

Woman’s is a Magnet and Baby Friendly designated health system, and consistently performs favorably to national benchmarks on clinical outcomes, patient safety, financial performance, patient experience, culture, and workforce engagement. In 2018, Woman’s ranked in the 99th percentile for physician engagement, 94% for employee engagement, and the 95th percentile for patient experience. It is the only recipient of Modern Healthcare Best Places to Work award every year the award has been given, ranking 6th in 2018. Woman’s has a dominant market share in all women’s health service lines ranging from 75% to 95% in its primary and secondary service areas. As a tertiary health system, Woman’s provides high risk maternal and infant services statewide as well as access to breast cancer care.

Teri’s leadership service to the healthcare field includes numerous state and national healthcare boards. She currently serves on the American College of Healthcare Executives Board of Governors. She has had numerous appointments the past twenty years with the American Hospital Association, including chair of the board of trustees in 2012.

She was honored as Businessperson of the Year in 2013 by the Baton Rouge Business Report, received the inaugural Becker’s Hospital Review Healthcare Leadership award in 2013 and again in 2016, and was a 2011 inductee of the Louisiana State University E.

I deliver consistently in areas that have an impact on direct patient care. These solutions reduce the risk of acquiring preventable conditions at an individual level and are beneficial at a population level.

Relentless Explorer

What is he solving for?

I am most energized when I'm listening and connecting with people to ensure their voices are being heard. I am a true believer that no matter your position, you control culture and that strategy doesn’t work without empathy. As such, I focus on solving problems by giving authority to others so those around me are empowered to grow and develop.

Background

As president of Banfield Pet Hospital, Brian Garish oversees the largest veterinary practice in the United States, including more than 1,000 hospitals and 18,000 associates.

Under his leadership, Banfield has pioneered associate-centered programs that include expanding available mental health resources, piloting a program that helps relieve veterinarians’ student debt burdens, and creating a culture of inclusion that empowers associates to influence company strategy and growth. He has achieved a practice-wide all-time low turnover rate for veterinarians and the support staff – quite a feat in today’s highly competitive race for veterinary talent.

Garish started working as a 16-year-old sweeping floors, stocking shelves, cashiering and unloading trucks, then advanced through management roles at Walgreens and senior leadership roles at CVS Health before joining Banfield in 2015 as chief operating officer.

That blend of experience with healthcare for both people and pets is why today one of his big goals is to advance human health through pet health. He eagerly shares his bold ideas and thought leadership in the following areas of expertise:

  • The intersection of pet health, human health and societal wellbeing
  • Strategic and operational excellence
  • Leadership and human capital
  • Change management

As a leader who connects more with Gen X, but is close enough in age with many Millennials, he is uniquely positioned as the president of Banfield who oversees an organization with a workforce that is nearly two-thirds Millennial and Gen Z. This also gives Garish a unique perspective on how to help leaders prepare their organizations for the demographic shifts underway. Believing these demographic shifts will change everything about how business runs – including how work gets done, which business models will succeed, what products and services people will want, and more – Garish feels an urgency and passion for helping leaders create cultures of inclusion that will fuel growth.

Wendy York

Endless Possibilities

What is she solving for?

I gravitate to situations that let me provide strategic vision to solve a problem or to create an entirely new opportunity. I find myself feeling most fulfilled when I can support others to see their own power to accomplish more than they thought possible. In other words, I enjoy setting a path forward while emboldening others to go to new heights.

Background

Wendy York became the 15th dean and first female to lead business education at Clemson University in July 2018, following successful leadership roles in business and academia.

Dean York oversees the academic and administrative functions of the College of Business and its more than 5,000 students, 175 faculty and 90 staff.

With her strong credentials, Dean York is charged with producing the next generation of innovative and ethical Clemson-educated business leaders. The development of those business leaders is being conducted in the college’s newly completed, state-of-art, 176,000-square-foot building.

Most recently, Dean York served as an associate dean in Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. Prior to that, she held executive-level positions in small and large non-profit and for-profit organizations, including employment with Bechtel Power Corporation and Bank of America.

Throughout her career, Dean York ran high-performance teams and successfully created cultures of accountability, transparency and collaboration. She started and/or led four early-stage technology and internet companies and accumulated more than 20 years of direct profit and loss responsibility. She spent more than five years as a venture capitalist, managing a private portfolio with a market capitalization of $100 million.

Dean York earned an undergraduate degree with High Honors and Distinction at Stanford University. She also earned an MBA with an emphasis on strategy and operations from Harvard Business School.

What is she solving for?

I enjoy solving large strategic problems that stretch the boundaries of what could be possible by amplifying solutions through collaboration. I best solve people and organization problems and tend to spend a lot of time asking what would transform our industry, who are the key stakeholders who would want to collaborate to solve this problem and what would it take to truly game change for our organization or industry.
