Practical Leadership Strategies in an Age of Change, October 7-8, 2015

The Hawaii Pacific Chapter of ACHE held an educational conference located at the Queen's Conferencing Center on October 7 and 8. The program was entitled "Practical Leadership Strategies in an Age of Change" and presented by Carson Dye, CEO of Exceptional Leadership, author of nine books, executive recruiter, and former health systems leader with over 42 years of total experience.   

Carson spoke on the rapid changes occurring in the healthcare workplace today and focused on providing strategies for dealing with a changing workforce and provided suggestions on transformational leadership that can enhance quality and outcomes. Mr. Dye is a dynamic speaker and fully engaged the audience with practical examples and tools for leading change. The interactive format of the educational sessions provided attending ACHE members with 12 face to face educational credits towards their credentialing goals.

There were over 35 individuals in attendance at the event, taking advantage of the highly discounted rate of the conference. The overall feedback was very positive and we look forward to working to provide you a similar opportunity in 2016! 


Diversity Panel Discussion Event, October 7, 2015

The Diversity Panel Discussion at the end of the first day of the educational conference was an example of a free networking and educational event offered to the entire chapter. This opportunity provided a bonus for 1.5 face to face credits and a great opportunity to network and participate on a leadership issue deserving attention in today's landscape: Diversity. Kathleen Kozak,M.D., Radio Host and Internal Medicine Physician served as moderator and directed the discussion and provided comedy relief after a long day of learning. Heavy Pupus were provided.
