General Session: The Infinite Game: Leadership for Long-Term Success

Speaker: Simon Sinek, optimist and best-selling author
NOTE: Introductions, 3:30–4:00 pm. The session starts at 4:00 pm.

Duration: 60 minutes

Games like chess or baseball are finite: The rules are clear, as are the winners and losers. Most organizations and leaders are focused on winning, but how do you win a game that never ends. In business, there often is no "winning," much less staying ahead in a game that doesn't end. For medical practices, there's always a fresh set of challenges -- the leaders who understand this infinite game and ignore the short-term mindset can innovate out of problem areas to build stronger organizations and outlast the competition. Great leaders play the infinite game, and this session will help you understand how they do it. Following the main presentation, attendees will be able to engage with the best-selling author of Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last in a 30-minute Q&A session.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

o    Identify the different approaches between short-term/finite and long-term/infinite goal-setting
o    Indicate where strategies and tactics may be misaligned
o    Recognize opportunities to shift away from a finite mindset within your organization

Specific examples and case studies will show how to establish aligned compensation models for performance metrics that support optimized payment and clinical/business outcomes.
