Prelude to RLConvening

Join the RLConvening Prelude Conversation, an Immersive Relational Leadership Experience

Dive into RLConvening through this optional pre-conference experience, and learn why the Relational Leadership (RL) framework is a critical first step in creating a human-centered healthcare system built on a foundation of connection and collaboration.

This practical approach to working better together will be led by healthcare professionals within the RL community. Attendees will learn tools and techniques to apply RL within their own work settings and sample the benefits of a broad spectrum of Intend Health programming, including didactic and small group activities with a focus on application.  

RLConvening Prelude attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Discuss today's healthcare leadership experience with a group of committed, healthcare professionals at varying career stages.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of Relational Leadership, its human-centric language, and its organizational benefits.
  • Learn techniques to build awareness and deepen understanding of the value of psychological safety in building successful, high performing teams.
  • Build ongoing relationships with and gain insight from a national and diverse group of like-minded, interdisciplinary healthcare professionals.

Who Should Attend

This foundational session is a great fit for:

  • Those new to the RL framework.
  • Former (> four years) Primary Care Progress (PCP) team members and faculty.
  • Individuals desiring an RL refresher.
Social / Wellness Activities
  • Welcome Reception with hors d'oeuvres
  • Organized events: group stroll to the botanical garden, soul food tour, civil rights walking tour
  • If interest: pre-breakfast wellness time (meditation, yoga, walk, etc.)

Skill-building Sessions

Focus on connection through these interactive learning opportunities. Topics may include medical storytelling, relationship mapping, psychological safety, and moral injury.

“Reverse” Panels

Three Relational Leaders present  a challenge or quandary, and the group offers suggestions and resources as solutions.

Structured 1:1s

Similar to speed networking: series of 8-minute conversation blocks, with each person serving as both an “initiator” and “recipient” of relationship-building questions.

Mini AMA — Ask Me Anything

Self-identified subject matter experts are available for ad hoc consultation and brainstorming. Topics could range from leadership development to telehealth to time management.
