Idaho Healthcare Association Annual Meeting

What a great, warm, friendly group!  I love the providers in Idaho.  This was my second time I got to speak to this group.  Last year I spoke on creating a unique culture within your facility/company.  This time it was about the ‘Leading Cause of Death’ of new leaders … monkeys.  It was a fun 60 minutes.  I really enjoy sharing the {monkey business} time management philosophy that completely saved my career.  And, I’m happy to speak to individual companies too.

I’m on my way home from Iowa & Nebraska.  I was there for a couple weeks to assist with the cultural integration of our organization with the acquisition of 9 facilities.  Our approach is not to come in and say ‘you will all be like us and do things the same way.’  Rather, we empower facility leaders to create their own goals, strategy, and vision.  It was a blast to see lights turn on in their faces as the realization hit them that they are more empowered than they have ever been in their careers.

We talk in terms of the three-legged stool: quality product or service, happy customers & employees, and financial stewardship.  Instead of ‘corporate’ people pulling puppet strings, we empower all of our local leaders to totally own their operation.  These guys will do great!

What I wasn’t prepared for was the staggering amount of corn!  Amazing.  Plus, the flooding of the Missouri River.  Crazy.  Some other great discoveries.  I truly loved the heartland.  Looking forward to coming back soon.  Great people.
