Thriving in Healthcare: Purpose-Driven Leadership

In an ever-changing and challenging industry like healthcare, leaders have to rely on a powerful constant: their passion and purpose for their work. As healthcare professionals face ongoing change, crisis, burnout and growing mental health challenges, now is the time for organizations to cultivate a culture where employees can reconnect to their passion — to their “why” for working and leading in healthcare.

At the Thriving in Healthcare: Purpose-Driven Leadership virtual forum on May 11, attendees will have the opportunity to join others from across healthcare to reconnect with their purpose. Hear from industry-leading keynote speakers as they share purpose-driven leadership tactics rooted in Evidence-Based LeadershipSM, the Nine Principles® for organizational excellence, and other leadership concepts designed to build a sustainable culture where employees can thrive now and in the future.

Designed with busy healthcare leaders in mind, this half-day virtual event is available for healthcare professionals across the industry. All attendees will receive a full library of on-demand resources that will be available for 30 days after the event.
