When you hear the word “inspiration” what do you think? Can you think of someone who has inspired you? How did they make you feel? What did they make you want to do? Is inspiration something you can use to improve the environment of care and ultimately the patient experience? Ground breaking research from Performance Inspired, Inc. has clearly shown that inspiration is far from fluff or accidental in nature. In fact, inspiration is set of seven well-defined drivers that can be leveraged to proactively tackle the unique challenges facing healthcare institutions today. How to engage and retain staff, improve quality and service, increase communication and collaboration, and navigate an uncertain reform environment are all top of mind issues for health care leaders. Validated work place studies have shown that activating inspiration addresses these challenges in a foundational and sustainable fashion that leads to higher levels of engagement, retention, productivity, and customer service. In this executive conversation “Inspiration: The Birth of a Discipline”, expert guests Larry Mohl and Terry Barber from Performance Inspired Inc. will discuss the science of inspiration and how you can put the drivers into practice in a way that equips your leaders and staff with the skills and tools they need to build a patient-centered, highly connected and resilient organization. You are one of only 12 leaders being invited to participate in this dialogue. So join us, and you’ll leave inspired, and fired up to inspire others in your organization. I will be following up with you over the next few days in hopes of having you as one of our 12 guests.
