"Building a Culture of Success"

Do you want to take steps to improve patient and donor care while building a culture of success in your facility? Do you want to ensure that you and your staff have the resources to maintain high-levels of care even in our industry’s shifting landscape?

Shawn Achor is a New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage and Big Potential, noted speaker and one of the world’s leading experts on the connection between happiness and success. In 2014, Oprah Winfrey did a two-hour interview with Shawn on the science of happiness and meaning. His research on happiness made the cover of Harvard Business Review, his TED talk is one of the most popular of all time and his lecture airing on PBS has been seen by millions.

Shawn’s research of top performers at Harvard, the world’s largest banks, and Fortune 500 companies shows that success at work is overwhelmingly determined by optimism, social support network and the ability to manage energy and stress in a positive way. This is especially true for health care professionals, who must maintain incredibly high-standards in exhausting and stressful roles and health care executives that are charged with building a culture for success.

Shawn has worked with over a third of the Fortune 100 companies, and given talks to many healthcare organizations, including the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE).
