“Scott brings the fundamentals of service excellence to life. He is a person who lived a nightmare and emerged with life lessons that inspire us all. He speaks eloquently and passionately about family who supported and motivated him; and healthcare professionals who looked at him as a case and those who looked at what he could accomplish with appropriate challenges and optimism. I have never seen managers lines up for 30 minutes during a break just so they would have a chance to speak with him personally. Truly remarkable.”   Marna P. Borgstron, President and CEO, Yale-New Haven Hospital/Yale New Haven Health System

In today’s rapidly changing Healthcare Market, many organizations are trying to maintain an optimistic culture as they deal with an array of business challenges and those challenges that revolve around patient-centered care. Perhaps today you are trying to improve patient satisfactory scores and engagement as you grapple with a decreasing labor pool, lower reimbursements and everyday stresses. Maybe you are looking for ways to deliver better care and outcomes as you attempt to secure and grow market share. Perhaps you are trying to develop alternate revenue streams, contain core operating costs or change your existing business model to reflect ongoing changes. Or maybe you are feeling paralyzed by new rules, increased regulation and compliance as well as advancing technologies, new reporting requirements and your competition.

Whatever your healthcare challenges are, the true measure of success is how well you respond to adversity, change, setbacks and fear. Whatever belief system you employ must be powerful enough to conquer these obstacles and any other impediments to your personal and professional growth, or you—and your organization—will be left behind.
