Developing an Extraordinary C-Suite Team

Health Alliance Plan’s Award-Winning Journey

When Dr. Mike Genord became the president and CEO of Health Alliance Plans (HAP), he knew that his success and his organization’s survival depended on the performance of his executive team. Faced with unprecedented market challenges and a looming global pandemic, Genord’s full-service health insurance company needed a C-suite who could do three things, all in service to organizational performance and success:

  1. create a compelling and achievable strategic plan;
  2. engage, motivate, retain, and harness the power of 1,110 employees; and
  3. learn to trust, challenge, debate, and ultimately finish each other’s sentences.

Partnering with Dion Leadership, Genord and his team embarked on a thorough and thoughtful path to build an extraordinary C-suite team. Over the last five years, Dion Leadership’s executive coach and consultant, Vicki Walker, facilitated a series of impactful events, using four different modalities: team development sessions, leadership training, individual coaching, and dyad coaching. Each element built upon itself to weave together a comprehensive program that built team alignment, clarity, commitment, and results.

This highly customized program was the recipient of a 2023 “Best Advances in Team Development” Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Bronze Award.

Informed by the understanding that every time a new team member joins, a new team emerges, the consistent application of these team development activities dramatically improved the individual and collective performance of the team.

In this webinar, Dr. Genord and Vicki Walker will share the HAP story, from the challenges in the beginning to the team they have today. Get a real-life, firsthand glimpse into C-Suite development through the open exchange and partnership created between the President and CEO and the team’s executive coach.

Featured Presenters:

  • Dr. Mike Genord, President and CEO, Health Alliance Plans
  • Vicki Walker, Executive Coach and Consultant, Dion Leadership

  • Share the five-year Brandon Hall award-winning development story of HAP’s C-suite team and how they became a high performing team
