Leadership Academies

"TLD Group’s customized Academy provided a fast-paced, executive-level development forum which guided our leaders through key management and leadership principles. The lessons helped strengthen dyads and triads into high-performing teams. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to participate in such a great program and will continue to apply the skills and concepts acquired during our Academy."

"The APLA program opened my eyes to who I am and what direction I wanted to take in my professional life. Yes, the lectures were fantastic and the TLD team was superb -- but the action learning projects with my core team of six physicians brought me together with people like and unlike me. The opportunity to meet with executive leaders from across the organization granted me access to some of the thought leaders in modern healthcare... APLA also kept me grounded -- I had a better perspective on my work, my mission, and through the help of one-on-one coaching I was able to better identify my strengths and weaknesses. I got to see firsthand a transformation and a "spark" in the eyes and hearts of seasoned, late-career physicians just the same as new attending physicians just getting their feet wet in clinical and administrative work. I know that I will be a better leader for having taken part in this program and I would recommend it to anyone interested in developing a future generation of leaders."

"As a result of working with TLD Group, our overall Press Ganey physician ratings increased from the 30th to the 66th percentile. In reflection, the group work and team projects were brilliant in that they embedded the leadership skills into small groups which helped move the culture of the organization much faster than “just attending class.” As a physician, we often have ideas, but we don’t have the tools to integrate and participate in the organization. This experience was very eye-opening and impactful to our physicians.
