Episode 27: Project Management Gone Awry

Project Management Gone Awry is the focus of this podcast with Scott Leavell, Managing Partner of Healthcare Program Advisors.  The podcast explores which challenges in project management are more manageable to bounce back from, and the reasons projects get derailed in the first place.  Project derailment can occur from delays, exceeding budgets, unmet client/user expectations, and financial or operational difficulties. We explore the various factors that cause projects to veer off course, discuss when courageous leaders should “call the question,” and review the essential steps to getting a project back on track.

Episode 26 : From Quiet Quitting to Showing Up Loudly: Cultivating the Practice of Connecting to Your Purpose

Let’s move from “quiet quitting” to “showing up loudly and boldly” at work. A discipline of contemplative practice provides self-awareness and can center you in your work.  A dedication to contemplative practice ensures that you remain present, insightful, and concentrated on your purpose and your people. In this conversation with Nicole Eull, PsyD, we will explore the reasons reconnecting to your purpose can improve your professional and overall well-being.

Episode 23: Working Parents: Michelle Yu

During this month’s podcast, we’re departing from our usual discussions of healthcare leadership and industry issues to talk about a topic that impacts healthcare personnel. The experience of being a working parent. This topic matters to healthcare because workforce availability, employee focus and staff wellbeing are all impacted by whether we feel our children are cared for and safe, and by how working parents are supported as they re-engage in their work following the birth or adoption of a child.  Michelle Yu, CEO and Co-Founder of Josie a company dedicated to transforming the working parent experience, will help us explore this topic.
