The Opportunity

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

A well established and influential international fraternity of physicians, who practice in the field of cardiovascular medicine, is large enough to be a business organization.  With a CEO, CFO, HR VP, Legal Counsel VP, and a VP over academics, these five executives run an organization under the supervision of a Board of Trustees of over 47,000 members.  These executives are responsible to lead 300 plus staff employees, all highly qualified in their areas of expertise.  Their oversights include dissemination of academic research, best clinical practices, development of innovative tools, code of ethics, health initiatives, conferences, educational workshops, and advocacy.

The American College of Cardiology (ACC), like any other business, must maintain a growing and successful organization with positive ROI’s and checks and balances.  In order to have a good chance of accomplishing this, a newly appointed CEO, the first without a degree in medicine, came into this organization steeped in tradition.  Having come from a highly successful business and pharmaceutical background, this CEO wanted to make sure his new environment was healthy so that they could continue to thrive.

Our Approach

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Ampelis was approached with a challenge to help this new CEO create an organizational culture where conflict was viewed as a healthy thing, conversations were open and unfettered, change was considered productive, and investment in people was encouraged.  The goal would be built on the concept of improving ACC’s organizational health.

Ampelis brought ACC’s senior leadership team out to Moab, Utah for a three-day content driven experience.  Using organizational strategy theories on peak performance and organizational health issues, these executives participated in outdoor activities such as canyoneering, mountain biking, and 4-wheel ATV excursions where these theories were interwoven and applied.

After this experiential workshop, the executives saw the benefits and worked with Ampelis to design a similar experience for ACC’s department leaders back at their headquarters in Washington, D.C.  Collaborating with Stanford University’s business professor, Dr. Peter Finkelstein, and utilizing the local outdoor opportunities that exist even in a busy metropolitan city like D.C., Ampelis designed and implemented a two-day program based on the same theories, strategies and applications the senior executives had in Moab.  They engaged in rock climbing, rappelling, mountain biking, and sea kayaking.

The Outcome

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Even with some hesitation and trepidation from the department leaders, all participated in some or all of the Ampelis experience.  Although there was encouragement to participate from the senior executives, no one was forced to.  But, as the program got underway, even the hesitant ones saw the value in the experiences and began to jump in.  Fear became excitement, doubts became interest, experiences became stories, and co-workers became friends.  In the end, the program created organizational legends and personal insights.  Everyone gained an appreciation for the new CEO’s willingness to invest in their development and the organization’s health.

As the ACC moves forward, the horizon looks positive with the attitude of adventure. The culture of the ACC is now one of excitement.  The new battle cries are “what’s next” and “bring it on!”.
