    Leadership teams from Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC), U.S. Air Force 86th Medical Squadron (86th MDS) and Dental Health Activity Rhineland-Pfalz (DENTAC-RP) engaged in a Command Team forum strategic assembly at Ramstein Air Base from Oct. 18-20, 2022.

    The event provided leadership development, team-building activities, and networking opportunities for the region’s top medical leaders including four Army Health Clinics in Germany, Italy, and Belgium. During the forum, participants exercised essential coaching skills in adaptive communication and motivation, while discussing constructive practices toward establishing and building trust.

    “This event is about learning how to become better leaders and using those tools and ideas to mentor future leaders,” said U.S. Army Col. Andrew L. Landers, commander of LRMC.

    U.S. Army Master Sgt. Arturo Duron, noncommissioned officer in charge (NCOIC) for Dental Command Europe, said this training will help leaders focus on strengths of the Force while improving performance and creating more diverse teams.

    “As leaders we are always focused on the mental health of our Soldiers and Airmen, and often times we forget to look out for our own mental health,” he said. “This offsite gives us all a moment to step back with our counterparts across the region to establish measures to work on ways to improve moral which in turn improves productivity.”

    Master Sgt. Christian Cuyno, NCOIC for SHAPE Healthcare Facility, said training like this “gives (leaders) great information on how to solve issues instead of recreating solutions”

    “We have subject-matter experts and other leaders that have possibly gone through the same situation,” he said.

    LRMC faces with units spread across three countries, working in a joint environment comprised of over 1,000 Soldiers, nearly 300 Airmen, 900 Civilians and 300 Local Nationals and also recently transforming from a Department of the Army Medical Treatment Facility to a Defense Health Agency MTF, which is why it’s important to evolve these leadership skills for the continuously changing environment.
