Dare to Matter: Don't Just Communicate. Lead.   

Today's healthcare environment is the modern day version of the wild, wild west. Changing regulations, increasing costs, medicine advancements, and elevated uncertainty demand that today's medical hospitals and offices employ the expertise of efficient, effective and adaptive leaders.

In order to avoid a chaotic stampede, where people are running in all directions but no one really knows why, healthcare leaders need the right knowledge to be excellent communicators, effective problem solvers and possessors of a high degree of self-confidence. Of course, they need to do this while maintaining their own sense of personal and professional balance.

Healthcare professionals at every level need to maintain their own heightened level of motivation, engagement and commitment on a daily basis. But the keys to do so don't reside in a pursuit of success and happiness; rather, they exist within a relentless pursuit of significance.


What you will learn: 

  • Know three important questions that immediately elevate responsibility, accountability and performance.
  • Explore the critical role of identity and how identity drives activity and decision-making.
  • Witness the influence that fear plays in our lives and understand the keys to effectively address that fear.
