Announcing New Joint Partnership Forming the Next Level Institute


Announcing New Joint Partnership Forming the Next Level Institute

Dallas, Texas - 4/3/2012:

What does it take to become a leader of case managers in 2011? Nursing and social work skills in depth, a knack for finance and systems, interpersonal skills, and a rare combination of sensitivity to patient needs and the thick skin sometimes required to advocate for the protection of those patients. And, now more than ever, managers of case managers must possess a finely honed ability to balance the ethical imperative to provide top-quality care with the financial imperatives of hospitals undergoing rapid change.
Given the financial strains wrought by macroeconomic malaise and health-care reform, there’s no way around it: To move up in a hospital case-management department, “a clinical case manager needs to understand business aspects of delivering services,” says Cheri Lattimer, RN, BSN, executive director of the Case Management Society of America.
Still, leaders in case management must remain deeply involved in their clinical calling. “Hospital executives don’t want someone who will sit at her desk all day,” says John Fulcher, director of health-care recruiting for Bauer Consulting Group in El Paso, Texas. “One of my clients who’s a director of case management has to go on rounds every day.”
There is no certain path to promotion in a case-management department, but there are diverse possibilities. “There are a few different routes to management,” says Brad Ellis, health-care division leader for recruiter Kaye/Bassman International in Plano, Texas. “It can be long tenure and superior performance in case management, or becoming an expert in a particular health-care IT system, or certifications in different areas. But you need a nursing background; social work alone doesn’t cut it anymore.”
Due to the explosive growth of the Next Level Exchange, a collaborative portal that brings together the best practices of recruitment training from around the globe, NLE is proud to announce a joint partnership with the newly formed Next Level Institute led by founding Chairman Tony Dickel. The success of theNext Level Exchange is predicated on visionary thinking backed by the support of dozens of renowned industry trainers, hundreds of executive search firm owners, and thousands of recruiters hailing from around the globe. 


“With clients in over forty countries around the world, we realized the incredible need throughout Asia for recruitment training specific to the Asian market. When evaluating who was best suited to lead our drive into Asia, there was no question that Tony Dickel, who we have known for many years, has a unique track record of success as a leader in the recruiting industry which makes this a natural partnership,” said Jeff Kaye, Chief Executive Officer of Next Level Exchange. 

Dickel founded the MRI China Group in 1998 in Hong Kong and proceeded to build a multi-site multinational search organization employing nearly 300 people working out of 11 offices in 6 countries around Asia.   In the last several years he also moved into the leadership development, training and coaching world, developing and mentoring leaders inside and outside the recruitment industry, prior to founding the Next Level Institute.  

Dickel stated, “The partnership between Next Level Exchange and Next Level Institute achieves a new industry standard for search firm owners and executive recruiters in the region desiring the latest in sophisticated approaches, fresh perspectives, and innovative methodologies. We are thrilled to be able to offer throughout Asia numerous programs designed to captivate and educate both the new and tenured recruiter, varying from streaming videos on-demand, live workshops, and distance-based mastery courses, all designed, tailored for or relevant to the region.”
