The How of Now: Healthcare Culture Change in Turbulent Times

April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Please RSVP for this event on the registration button below and on Zoom

Mike Eppehimer

Healthcare leaders need to start with “why” when creating ambitious mission statements, strategic plans and DEI statements. They also focus on equally ambitious efforts to measure the “what” of desired outcomes for those efforts. This presentation will center on a tongue twister troubling many healthcare leaders across the country: Why is my what not the what my why wanted?

To answer this question, leaders must look at the “how” of their daily behaviors. We will explore how the collection of thousands of daily leadership moments has a critical impact on organizational culture. Those moments may create dynamic cultures of inclusion, collaboration and trust or they may create cultures filled with fear, mistrust and anxiety.

Mike will share examples of leadership best practices from business, academia, sports, mindfulness and creative arts to demonstrate meaningful actions leaders can take to transform how they show up in the moments that matter. He will discuss the business case for the HOW of leadership being more important than ever in a highly competitive market. Mike will share specific tools and actions to recognize the role of status, create a sense of presence and engagement, create space for equitable contributions, listen effectively when under stress, and ensure the right combination of accountability and psychological safety.

Participants in this engaging and fast-paced presentation will explore the culture challenges facing healthcare organizations across the country, understand how misaligned daily leadership behaviors can negatively impact organizational culture and results, and gain skills to explore fresh ways of creating leadership moments that promote a culture of inclusion, collaboration and trust.
