Multi-Session Programs
Our Strategies

Multi-Session Programs

Healthcare is increasingly complex, requiring sophisticated skills that prioritize high levels of coordination, collaboration, and trust.

Multi-Session Programs

Drives for efficiency, value, and equity only raise the stakes and heighten the need for truly effective teams. The characteristics of high- performing teams and organizations have been known for decades. However, building such teams, or transforming poorly performing teams into them, is challenging.

The experiences we create are curated from decades of experience in healthcare and beyond. We help to make a core set of relational skills practical in healthcare. Intend Health offers a wide range of highly interactive and tailored multi-session programs to meet your organization’s specific needs. Participants gain skills and insights to help their team build trust, capacity, and community.

Our multi-session programs engage 10-70 individuals from intact teams, or cohorts of individuals from across organizations, in learning and community-building. Participants learn Relational Leadership concepts through short didactic sessions interspersed with breakout small-group activities. Whether the sessions are offered virtually or in-person, participants engage meaningfully with the content, and build lasting relationships with their peers.

Delivery Options

We offer in-person, virtual, and hybrid programs, and are happy to partner with individual organizations and/or provider networks.

Format Options

  • A workshop series
  • A more intensive, customized program for intact teams, or a cohort of individuals from multiple teams, with sessions delivered over weeks or months. The content is customized to address the needs and challenges specific to your group. Between sessions, team members will apply the techniques and reflect together on the results.

“I participated in RLI [the Relational Leadership Institute]... and my world has not been the same since. The community that I’ve gained at RLI has been extraordinary. Being part of RLI means being connected to a diverse, interdisciplinary community that breaks down the walls that are typical in academic medicine.”

"This year, there's been so much change with COVID, with work, with everything. But I feel like the PCP Student Action Network has been that constant that I could always just count on. And my favorite part is that no matter how stressful work was, no matter how stressful the year was, whenever it came time for a PCP call or any PCP anything, it's always something that I look forward to."

Student Action Network Coach

“Relational Leadership is what keeps me going. When I feel overwhelmed, stressed, down, I turn to members of the Relational Leadership community for support and resilience. We genuinely care about each other. We put ‘people first,’ truly, in our work together.”

Sarah Smithson, MD, MPH

Assistant Dean for Clinical Education University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine

“A big impact that Intend Health has on me is it makes me more humble, kinder, more intuitive, a better listener, and I’ve been able to teach the skills I’ve learned to others. All of this makes me a better team member, and I think that that's integral to what Intend Health teaches — we need high functioning teams to provide the best care.”

"Thank you for inspiring a generation of future docs to become primary care physicians. I definitely felt like I had a community during medical school."

“Relational skills are particularly important right now because they’re rooted in people, with the fundamental assumption that we are good and have common values. If I can approach with unconditional positive regard and build in psychological safety, who knows what we can accomplish, despite the chaos around us.”
