Download the Thought Leadership & Innovation Foundation’s new White Paper, “Engineering Cultural Change to Community Health Improvement”
An environment of economic uncertainty, technological advances and cultural diversity attests to the importance of shifting away from individualism toward a community-minded approach to solving complex issues. Communities increasingly recognize the need to pull together and develop new, impactful strategies, build a united front toward implementing meaningful change, pool resources and share ownership of the results.
This exemplifies the Thought Leadership & Innovation Foundation’s (TLI) approach to helping communities across the country that are struggling to come up with a coordinated, cohesive set of actions to effect change and generate social capital – a form of capital that produces positive results for a common good.
Fostering transformation and cultural changes in healthcare, education or economic empowerment begins with engaging thought leaders in academia and corporate sectors to address intractable problems that plague our communities.
As experts at identifying opportunities to improve the human condition in a significant way, TLI applies a laser focus to critical areas of society to better lives, communities and the nation as a whole, across a number of areas.
Most recently we’ve made a substantial difference in the areas of infectious determinants of chronic diseases, the opioid epidemic, technological innovation, clinical healthcare workflow, human performance measurement and outcomes metrics, using data analytics to determine the quality of medical care patients receive and economic empowerment through education.
Culturally Relevant, Globally Responsible
Organizations that share our focus will be called upon to share their knowledge, research, engagement strategies and value systems in a way that is culturally relevant and globally responsible to build stronger communities with a lasting impact. Success depends upon the collective behaviors and attitudes that exist within the community. Enlisting the help of a strategic partner, like TLI, can facilitate efficient and collaborative means to bring together multiple stakeholders.
It is an approach that is proving to be productive, connecting multiple silos that are working in specific channels and unifying them on a pathway to success. This recipe for progress minimizes unintended consequences, competition and asynchrony, enabling communities to identify factors and conditions that impact their culture and establish a sustainable framework for moving forward.
The Value of Partnerships
Solving a complex social problem and reengineering a transformation process requires seeing the world in a new light and forging the most optimal partnerships to avoid changes that are simply cosmetic or ineffective. No organization that wants to effect true change can do it alone. Even the largest and highest profile organizations, municipalities, academic institutions and other entities need help to amplify and augment existing programs, using new methods and technologies where they add value.
As a partner for change, we liken our role to that of an incubator capable of stimulating innovation and creating ways for the community to respond to a local crisis. In fact, despite the hurdles inherent in the many projects and social challenges we’ve taken on, we are proving every day that our approach effectively amplifies and accelerates the work already being done.
