6 Ways to Optimize Performance Through Openness & Accountability

By: TSC Team

When organizations harness the power of The Human Element, the results speak for themselves. We’re honored to share a success story from a top Cancer Center that, along with Master Licensed Human Element Practitioner™ Ethan Schutz, used our methodology as the basis for a successful executive development program.

Organization – Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City

Issue – The organization identified a need for executive level position training in order to retain high-potential staff members. More specifically, it was imperative that Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center increase ability of high-potential staff to take on executive positions in 5-10 years and decrease the amount of high-potential staff leaving the organization.

Outcome – Of the executive development program members, 65% received promotions after participating in the program. The program also resulted in savings of several million dollars in probable lawsuits and a $4.6 million growth in revenue. Ultimately, there were distinguishable increases in internal or lateral promotions, improvements in inter-departmental camaraderie and staff initiative, and increases in employee longevity.

Process – The Human Element was used as the core methodology in a year-long interdepartmental leadership and executive development program for high-potential employees. The program included nurses, physicians, and administrative staff. It focused on mentoring, coaching, training, and action learning for these high-potential staff members.
