Executive Leadership Development

Cultivating Exceptional Healthcare Leaders

Effective organizational transformation relies on purposeful leadership. However, achieving effective leadership does not just happen; it demands thoughtful planning and the development of leaders who can foster relationships and build structures that cultivate high-trust, high-performing teams. These teams must collaborate seamlessly to fulfill the organizational mission and achieve its vision. At ViaHCC, our team of executive coaching experts collaborates with boards, CEOs, and their leadership teams. We identify challenges hindering collaboration and trust so we can help you hone the skills necessary for leaders to steer their organizations toward success.


Strategic CEO Succession Planning for Seamless Transitions

Leadership Development From Front to Back: Ensuring Continuity

At ViaHCC, we know that a gap in effective leadership can have ruinous results for an organization. Delays in finding successors to CEOs can stymie organizational progress and halt the board’s work with leadership. CEO succession planning smooths the process for replacing existing executives and eases the transition as new leaders take up the organizational mission. Don’t let your organization be caught off guard by an executive exit. A CEO succession plan will help to ensure that your good work is carried on and progress will continue.

Executive Coaching for Optimal Leadership

Leadership Development for CEOs and Board Leaders: Nurturing Vision + Strategy

Now more than ever, high-performing organizations demand savvy and decisive leaders who can skillfully lead, collaborate, and innovate. ViaHCC’s executive coaching for CEOs and board leaders guides individuals in developing their abilities to communicate more effectively, establish trust, and more easily overcome challenges. Our coaching experts provide ongoing or as-needed executive coaching. Through a collaborative process that involves observation, empowerment, and engagement, we identify opportunities to enhance leadership skills and strengthen strategic execution.


CEO Assessment Expertise

CEO Evaluation: Comprehensive Assessment Tools

The importance of effective leadership is self evident, but assessing and providing feedback to improve a CEO’s performance is daunting for most boards. Formally evaluating the CEO’s performance annually is a cornerstone of effective governance. A comprehensive CEO evaluation will spell out the board’s expectations, strengthen the relationship between the board and CEO, and foster professional growth and development of the person who serves in this critical role. Yet, most boards follow a process that has not been well thought out to deliver on the goals. Furthermore, many use evaluation tools that are overly cumbersome and are not focused on the results the CEO needs to deliver. ViaHCC works with boards and CEOs to create an annual CEO evaluation process that is simple enough to easily carry out, while still delivering relevant, constructive, and actionable feedback.


The end result: A performance evaluation that identifies appropriate, realistic, and measurable CEO performance goals. ViaHCC’s assessment process establishes the foundation for successful CEO-board interactions and clarifies expectations of what constitutes excellence in performance.
