Excellence in SIU Leadership

NHCAA is hosting its 2nd Annual Excellence in SIU Leadership Program on June 7-8, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This highly interactive program is ideal for the rising stars in the special investigations unit (SIU). 

Attendance is limited to employees of health insurance plans or an employee of a law enforcement liaison member. Tuition-Free rate is not available for this program.

Participants should be prepared for group discussions, self analysis, and hands-on learning. Dynamic sessions enable you to engage in meaningful conversations and share experiences with peers from across the country. Training and development professionals and SIU leadership will guide participants through this 1 ½ day program that maximizes your limited time out of the office. Faculty will share best practices and personal insights throughout the program to provide the optimal learning experience for new leaders.

Topics Addressed

  • Unique challenges of an SIU leader
  • Transitioning from manager to leader
  • Leading teams with remote employees
  • Establishing constructive performance metrics
  • Determining strategies for communicating and adjusting your message based on your audience
  • Analyzing and translating data for big picture decisions
  • Understanding the legal and regulatory environment in which the SIU operates

Program Benefits

Participants will:

  1. Broaden their understanding of the unique challenges for managing and leading an SIU.
  2. Learn best practices in applying data analytics across the SIU and business.
  3. Recognize personal leadership weakness and strengths for ongoing growth.
  4. Acquire a new mindset to integrate a macro organizational strategy with SIU department objectives.

This program is ideal for high-potential middle-managers and directors interested in improving their ability to lead and manage teams and enhance the success of the SIU. Attendees should be on the path to supervisory or leadership roles and aspiring to the next level in their career.

This program is a repeat of the highly successful inaugural program held in 2017. Individuals who attended in 2017 in Baltimore, MD should not attend in 2018.

This is a Level III Program Designed to meet the needs of senior investigators and managers, with a focus on synthesizing ideas and exploring strategies, concepts and information needed to direct a health care fraud investigative unit.
