#55 How to get off the Merry-Go-Round of Competing Priorities and Numerous Change Initiatives to Achieve Lasting Outcomes
Today’s episode is based on over 30 years of experience that we have had working with healthcare organizations across North America.
We’ve observed over the years that organizations have the same problems, concerns, culture, and practice issues. Within each organization these challenges appear to be unique to the organization but when you have a more global perspective you can see these challenges are pretty much the same in other healthcare organizations.
Healthcare leaders enter what we call the “fix-it” mode and end up caught on the merry-go-round of competing priorities and numerous change initiatives. Before one project ends, another begins.
If you are like most of these leaders, you are juggling projects, revisiting the same issues over and over and unable to determine which of the many priorities are the priority!
You may or may not realize you lack a sense of the big picture, how each initiative impacts the other, how essential voices are missing from the process, and why the positive outcomes that are achieved are not sustained.
This is because the project or initiative driven change is not being supplemented with a systems or framework driven approach.
We hope you’ll join us for this episode to learn how healthcare leaders can implement both project/initiative and framework/system changes to achieve sustainable outcomes.

We have opened a private Resilient and Balanced Healthcare Leader Community in Facebook to provide a safe space for healthcare leaders to connect, support each other and share their experiences during this time of crisis. To join Click here.
