Become a Better Leader Today

Do you know the one thing you need to do to become a better leader?

Taking endless leadership “development” classes won’t do it. Reading the latest book on the subject won’t do it. Trying to be the buzzword of the day/month/year won’t do it.

The answer is actually quite simple. You just need to be yourself.

All of the ‘one size fits all’ approaches to leadership does not consider an individual’s innate and compensatory leadership qualities. We focus on leadership improvement using our proprietary 5-step Professional Leadership Process that teaches participants a personalized, continuously-improving process designed to be learned once and adaptable to almost any situation the leader or potential leader may encounter. It’s the last leadership course you should ever need.

How Leaders Prepare for Those “Go To The Wall” Moments

Every leader will be faced with needing their team members to go over and above what is normally required or even expected of them. Depending on the company or the industry, these moments could occur more frequently than desired. It could be as simple as asking someone to redo a report or analysis – for the third time, because new information that ‘might’ impact the outcome has become available. It could also be as difficult as asking someone to stay very late or work the weekend to help meet a deadline.

I call these “go to the wall” moments based on the action of a baseball centerfielder who upon seeing a deep flyball runs to the outfield wall to make the catch for his team. He realizes that he might hurt himself (and many have), but he believes that helping his team win the game is more important than his personal safety.

3 Myths About Leadership – Your “Matrix” Moment

In the 1999 groundbreaking movie, “The Matrix”, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) offers Neo (Keanu Reeves) a choice between a blue pill and a red pill. If Neo took the blue pill, he would wake up and continue believing whatever he wanted to believe about his life. If he took the red pill, he would stay and learn the truth about the Matrix.

This is your “Matrix” moment. It’s time for you to make a choice to either continue believing what you’ve been told about leadership or continue reading to learn some myths and truths about leadership.

50 African American Leaders in Healthcare to Know

The best healthcare delivery requires leadership from diverse backgrounds and experiences. This list highlights African Americans who have taken on leadership roles across the country at hospitals and health systems as well as in national organizations. Both established and emerging leaders are featured on this list. These individuals influence how their organizations approach healthcare delivery, develop healthcare policy and advocate for the next generation of leaders.

Becker’s Hospital Review accepted recommendations and conducted internal research to develop this list. Individuals cannot pay for inclusion on this list, which appears in alphabetical order.

Bryan Bennett. Executive Director and Founder of the Healthcare Center of Excellence. Mr. Bennett is executive director and founder of the Healthcare Center of Excellence, a research and consulting organization that aims to help healthcare organizations implement and manage technology, processes and human resources. He also writes on big data and health technology transformation for the HIMSS Future Care website.

3 Questions with J. Bryan Bennett for the Becker’s 9th Annual Meeting

On April 14th, I will give a presentation on “The Personalized Leadership Journey” at Becker’s Hospital Review’s 9th Annual Meeting. Other speakers on the agenda include: Bernard Tyson (CEO of Kaiser Permanente), Teri Fontenot (CEO of Women’s Hospital), Dr. John Noseworthy (CEO of Mayo Clinic), Lloyd Dean (CEO of Dignity Health) and former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

My presentation will discuss how ‘pundits’ will use hundreds of words to describe what it takes to be a leader when the truth of the matter is that all that is really needed to be a good leader is to be them self. This personalized approach to leadership is detailed in my book Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare.

As part of an ongoing series, Becker’s is talking to healthcare leaders who plan to speak at the conference, which will take place April 11-14, 2018 in Chicago.

READ THE INTERVIEW ON BECKER’S and see why I consider Chris Van Gorder and John Couris  special leaders.

BOOK REVIEW: “…One of the Best and Most Powerful Leadership Books I Have Read”

“This is one of the best and most powerful leadership books I have read. It is a concise and practical roadmap for developing leaders. Bennett defines leadership as a process rather than a position, with leaders being both “born and made”. He relates leadership to sports and makes a strong parallel to professional athletes who must train themselves to become even better.
