  • When FN walked into the Scutari Barrack Hospital: There was no clean water, the floors were filthy and the air was foul, rats ran wild and the place was infested with vermin.Soldiers were bedded on blood-soiled straw, most still wearing what they wore on the battlefield.There was no nutritious food and virtually no medicines or supplies, and no money to get any.Orderlies cared only for officers, refused to empty chamber pots, and spent more time chasing nurses than caring for patients.Amputations were performed out in the open in full view of other patients. Surgeons refused to wash their hands and most of their victims died of infection.The first thing the medical director said to her was that he wanted nothing to do with Florence and her do-gooder ladies.He relented only when several boatloads of casualties appeared on the horizon and the hospital was already beyond a state of crisis.

  • Question #1When did thehealthcare crisisbegin?
  • Question #2When will thehealthcare crisisend?
  • This story… 17
  • Has a happyending! 18
  • Companies that study employeeengagement* consistently find: ~ 25% fully engaged ~ 60% not engaged ~ 15% aggressively disengaged* e.g. Gallup, HR Solutions, Press Ganey

  • What patients see…
  • Memo to Doug…With all due respect, Iwould like to clarify twokey numbers: 36 and 10.
  • Shifting the Attitude Bell Curve
  • Genesis is generally 10-15points below best-in-classhealthcare scores foremployee engagement.What will it take to closethat gap?
  • The significant outlier – ata 23 point gap – is “Seniormanagement is concernedabout employees.”What’s this all about?
  • Is the midpoint of the curve inthe same for middle managers?
  • Remind me to tell youabout Jim Kilts and theturnaround at Gillette.
  • Disengagementnegatively effects…
  • Clinical quality
  • Patientsatisfaction
  • Patient safety
  • Productivity
  • Marketingimage
  • Turnover (goodand bad)
  • Job security

  • RecruitingandRetention … is not just one word! 62
  • You recruit with the “honey”of left-brain features such aspay and benefits… 64
  • You retain with the “glue”of right-brain qualitiesreflected in values, culture,and attitude. 65
  • One more thing – if“lean” is all left brain,you are just speedingup the assembly line.
  • It’s not accountability(left brain) ORownership (rightbrain).
  • It’s how we interrelatethe two to create awhole brain culture.
  • The journey from mereAccountability to a culture of Ownership
  • Ac count able
  • AccountabilityDoing what you are supposedto do because someone elseexpects it of you. It springsfrom the extrinsic motivationof reward and punishment.
  • You cannot hold people“accountable” for thethings that really matter.
  • Nobody ever changesthe oil in a rentalcar!
  • OwnershipDoing what needs to be donebecause you expect it ofyourself. Ownership springsfrom the intrinsic motivationof personal pride.
