The Path to Professional Leadership:
The 5-Step Process to Becoming a Better Leader

You can’t learn ‘skill x’ one day and expect to be a better leader the next. True leadership growth requires ongoing development and feedback.

Professional Leadership is a 5-step, personalized, leadership development program based on an individual’s innate qualities and strengths. It is designed as a continually improving process to help leaders develop a personalized leadership vision and philosophy for utilization in their daily leadership routine.

Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare:
Curing the Challenges Facing Today’s Healthcare Leaders

Available April 2017

The rate of change in healthcare is staggering. Now, more than ever, we need leaders who are well-versed in all aspects of leadership. Unfortunately, the skills that made healthcare leaders successful in the past may not be enough to be successful in the future. Managing change requires a very special set of skills. Project management, lean six sigma and other change processes all identify leadership as a key critical success factor.

More alarming was the fact that those in leadership positions did not recognize their role in the change management process.

Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare includes the results of interviews with healthcare executives, business executives and sports champions. The book is based on the proprietary 5-step Professional Leadership Program which personalizes leadership development based on an individual’s innate qualities and strengths. It is designed as a continually improving process to help leaders develop and adapt a personalized leadership vision and philosophy for utilization in their daily leadership routine. The program creates better leaders by incorporating the most often overlooked steps that research indicates are essential to better leadership development.

To access this knowledge, organizations are turning to analytics. Unfortunately, many organizations are rushing to implement any type of healthcare analytics program without consideration of the steps that must take place to build an effective, long-term analytics solution.

Competing on Healthcare Analytics is a practical guide to implementing population health analytics.
