GCC HIMSS Webinar: How to Create a Life-Giving Culture in Your Healthcare Organization

January 5, 12:00pm, CST - 1:00pm, CST


Non-member Price: 

The best culture in a health care organization is a "connection culture." Connection is defined as a bond based on shared identity, empathy and understanding that moves individuals toward group-centered membership. One prominent neuroscientist describes connection as a superpower because it makes people more productive, healthier and happier. Patients and their families benefit from connection cultures, too, as the feeling of connection among the healthcare professionals extends to them and helps reduce the stress and anxiety that accompany illness.

The webscast is based on Michael's best-selling book, Connection Culture: The Competitive Advantage of Shared Identity, Empathy and Understanding at Work. The Financial Times of London praised Connection Culture as having "practical suggestions for employers who want to change their organizational culture.” The Los Angeles Times added, “[Stories] about the companies who have got it right…are memorable.” Small Business Practices wrote, “A wonderful book…Connection Culture isn’t a very long or wordy book, but it’s loaded with lessons.”   Connection Culture has been honored or recognized as one of the best business books of 2015 by organizations included The Institute for Management Studies, getAbstract and 800-CEO-READ.
