danDaniel Pink

Motivation expert and author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

Leadership and the New Principles of Influence
Healthcare leaders at every level today confront two stark realities. First, in these fiercely competitive and endlessly turbulent times, they must do more with less. Second, the old-school management techniques we’ve long relied on to produce results frequently fail. Daniel Pink, best-selling author of Drive, A Whole New Mind and his most recent book, To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others offers a fresh look at how all leaders must enhance their skills in persuading, influencing and motivating others. He will offer three specific personal traits and identify specific skills that will improve your professional effectiveness.

Physician leader and author of Better: A Surgeon’s Notes on Performance

Leading the Change: Healthcare in Transition
Clinical transformation in an era of healthcare reform is that delicate balance between improving quality, managing risk, measuring performance and managing cost. Dr. Gawande brings an eloquence and an intellect to these questions that allow him to offer deeply considered and beautifully expressed solutions with implications for healthcare. His three books, Complications, Better, and The Checklist Manifesto, have won national acclaim and he is recognized by TIME magazine as among the world’s 100 most influential thinkers. He is a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship winner, a New Yorker columnist, an author — but, most of all, a physician, with a practitioner’s grasp of the everyday challenges of healthcare delivery. He offers unique perspective about the shift from independent practices to team based delivery in highly integrated systems of care.

lizLiz Wiseman

Leadership expert and author of Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter

Genius or Genius Maker? Engaging Talent Effectiveness
In today’s complex healthcare environment, healthcare professionals are being asked to work collaboratively in teams that focus on innovation with scarce resources to drive organizational change. Some teams are highly engaged and productive while others are not. Liz Wiseman, author of Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, illustrates how some leaders drain the intelligence and capability out of their teams while other leaders foster a culture of intelligence and passion in their organizations. Leaders and team members alike will benefit from learning the five disciplines of multipliers and how to fully engage the talent around and within us.
