#226: Encore Episode: The Importance of Creating Margin for Leaders

In this episode, we talk about creating a margin in your life and why it’s important for Thriving, Resilient and Unstoppable (TRU) leaders. We know leaders continue to experience numerous Covid surges, staffing shortages, increasing demands on their work, and other challenges that have kept the work intensity high that causes fatigue leading to exhaustion and burnout. In fact, most healthcare leaders continue to experience pain from the stress and work overload they deal with every day and trying to balance everything on their plates. In this podcast, we introduce the concept of “margin” in four areas in our lives to achieve balance and some of the underlying polarities. We also talk about some tips on creating margin in your life and some of the negative consequences of not having  margin in your life.

#225: Encore Episode: Reduce Negative Tension in Your Life and Leverage the Predictability of Polarities

Tension exists in all aspects of our life.  Many of the tensions we experience are perpetual, in other words, they never go away. When the tension isn’t managed or leveraged, it can feel heavy or negative. You may or may not already be realizing, if the tension isn’t going away, your best chance for a positive outcome is to learn to manage or leverage the tension. In this podcast, we have fun combining two of our passions (Polarity Intelligence™ and the game of golf) to show you how to leverage chronic tensions.

#224: Encore Episode: How to Become the CEO of your Life

Today’s episode is all about “How to become the CEO of your life”. We believe that if you're not taking full responsibility for your life and you're blaming circumstances and making an excuse not to do the things that serve your purpose, then you're not the CEO of your life. Maybe you have a limiting belief that you don't have a choice, or you’re not in control of your own life. But if you're the CEO of your life, you can give yourself the agency to realign your purpose, you have the choice to take control and create empowering beliefs for better outcomes of your life. In this podcast, we talk about how every leader has the agency to be the CEO of their own life. We also discuss three characteristics of being a CEO and what it takes to live those characteristics and own your life.

#223: Encore Episode: Is Problem Solving the Most Valuable Skill a Leader Can Have?

One of the core characteristics of a strong leader is they are an excellent problem solver. As clinicians, you are also trained to solve problems for the patients/clients you serve. But what we’ve come to learn is not all problems are solvable, and problem-solving skills don’t work on all the challenges that leaders face. So, then what do you do?  Today, we are going to tell you what you do.  We are going to talk about an essential competency every leader must have to overcome unsolvable problems and achieve sustainable outcomes.

#222: Encore Episode: How to Create a Vision for Your Professional and Personal Life

Do you have a vision for your life personally and professionally? In the work we do with leaders we often find they don’t have a clear vision for their life. Without a clear vision it’s difficult to feel personally aligned, to make mindful choices, or to know what actions to take. As Yogi Berra says, “You got to be careful, if you don’t know where you are going, ‘cause you might not get there”.  You end up feeling frustrated, full of regret, and wondering “how did I get here?” In today’s episode, we are sharing with you how to create a clear vision for your personal and professional life, so you can be a TRU (Thriving, Resilient, Unstoppable) leader.

#221: Encore Episode: TRU Series Polarity Intelligence™

In this episode, we focus on leveraging Polarity Intelligence™, which is Pillar #2 of our Dynamic Balance EffectTM (DBE) Framework. Polarity Intelligence applies the “missinglogic” to leverage the unavoidable tensions and challenges impacting your daily life. The thing is, most leaders feel these tensions are problems to solve because it’s the only lens they’ve ever known. If you treat them as problems and you don’t realize that you’re experiencing unmanaged polarities, you will realize your greatest fears and end up failing. In this podcast, we talk about the numerous tensions that act on you and how to identify and leverage them to establish a balanced life. We also talk about four crux personal polarities and their early warning signs, and negative outcomes if you over-focus on one over the other.

#220: Encore Episode: Attention Leaders! Busy is a Badge of Burnout

How many times do you say, “I’m fine, I’m just really busy” when people ask you how you are? Being busy becomes a status symbol as a leader. In fact, the more you can do, the more you’re asked to do, and the more you feel you’re bringing value to your team and your organization. In this podcast episode, we talk about why being busy is a badge of burnout, not honor. We also discuss the importance of setting boundaries for leaders and some warning signs of wearing a badge of burnout.

#219: Encore Episode: Calling all Leaders! Work-Life Balance is Possible

You've probably heard that work-life balance doesn't exist. Or maybe you've tried to balance your personal and professional life, especially during these challenging times, but you feel like it's impossible to achieve. As leaders, we're taught to look at challenges and issues as problems to solve and we think that problem-solving is the logic we apply to all challenges we face. Are we right? The thing is, not every problem is solvable, and if you can't recognize that the challenge isn't a problem to solve, then you're going to fail over time. In this episode, we reveal that Work-Life Balance is possible and why you can achieve it as a leader. We also discuss why some problems are not solvable, what a polarity is, how they work, and how you can take a different approach to manage them.

#212: Breaking the Myths about Work-Life Integration

In this podcast episode, we’re going to break some myths about the concept of work-life integration and how work-life balance is possible with a polarity mindset and a strategy. There are some false assumptions that achieving work-life balance is not possible, and work-life integration is the best option for finding a way out of burnout into a more balanced life. While both of these approaches are trying to get the same outcome, people don’t realize it isn’t a problem to solve but a polarity to manage. In this episode, we talk about the false beliefs in work-life balance, how it leads you to false choices, and the two main factors that influence work-life balance. We also talk about the importance of knowing your ‘why’ in creating work-life balance and some positive outcomes when looking at your professional and personal life.

#203: Being Your Future Self Now in Becoming a Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable Healthcare Leader

In this podcast, we talk about the importance of being your future self now in becoming a Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable (TRU) healthcare leader. You may or may not know that stepping into the identity of the person who has achieved the desired outcome is something we have been living with for quite some time. But there were a few years where the results we desired weren't coming to fruition, and it was when we learned that we were using backward thinking that things began to change for us. In fact, this concept is not new to us, and we’ve done this in our business, so we want to reinforce and emphasize its importance in this episode. In this podcast, we talk about the concept of being your future self now and how healthcare leaders can apply it to survive and thrive.

#202: The Importance of Leveraging Planning and Executing as Healthcare Leaders

In this podcast, we talk about the importance of leveraging Planning and Executing as healthcare leaders. We know that effective organizational change requires a partnership between leaders and managers. They are both essential in planning a vision for change and executing the necessary actions to bring that vision into reality. In fact, when Planning and Executing polarity is not leveraged, it creates greater tension and can lead to ineffective organizational change, wasted resources, and unsustainable outcomes. In this episode, we talk about the benefits of Planning and Executing and some of the negative consequences if you over-focus on one to the neglect of the other. We also talk about the different early warning signs when you are overemphasizing planning or executing and some actions you can take to ensure that the plan is in place and properly executed.

#187: Finding Balance Between Holding On and Letting Go as a Healthcare Leader

In this podcast, we talk about the importance of finding balance between Holding On and Letting Go as healthcare leaders. We know these are incredibly challenging times and that you are facing things you’ve never faced before or no one has taught you how to deal with them as an emerging or evolving leader. As a result, you rely on what you have learned and experienced in the past about being a leader since there is no blueprint or manual on how to lead during these times. Are we right? That’s why it’s important to have a delicate balance of letting go of the past that is not serving you, so you can move into the future that will serve you best as a leader. In this podcast, we talk about the negative consequences of not letting go of the past and how that is not serving you, as well as some of the benefits of practicing reflection as a leader. We also talk about the ‘stepping-stone’ approach to reflect on milestones in your leadership journey and some of our stepping-stone milestones, and what you can learn from them.

#176: Seven Reasons to Claim and Share Power for Healthcare Leaders

In this episode, we talk about the seven reasons to Claim and Share Power and why it's essential for healthcare leaders. We know most emerging and evolving leaders have been in a time of uncertainty, and they don't know what the "new normal" is as everything seems to be in a constant state of change. As a result, they go with the flow, waiting for someone to provide direction because they don't feel worthy of their power or feel that exerting their personal power is a career-ending move. The thing is, no one can give you power because it doesn't come from an external source, and even if there is a power associated with your role or position, it will dissipate over time if you don't claim your own power. In this podcast, we talk about why it's important to leverage the Claiming and Sharing Power polarity and some of the negative consequences of not leveraging the tools to claim and share power. We also talk about how your personal and shared power can show up and some of the positive outcomes of leveraging this tension.

#174: Leveraging a Creator Orientation to Focus on Current Reality and Desired Outcomes

In this episode, we talk about leveraging a creator orientation to focus on your current reality and future desired outcome as a healthcare leader. We know leaders and healthcare organizations have been facing numerous challenges on a daily basis for the past three years. In fact, the current circumstances are difficult where staffing is terrible, the volume and acuity of patients are high, and there is a lack of seasoned or experienced leaders to learn from. That’s why putting your attention and orientation on addressing the desired outcomes is critical to achieving sustainable progress and positive outcomes. The thing is, when you hold a creator orientation and focus on leveraging and learning from the current realities while moving toward future desired outcomes, you will experience more positive outcomes and sustainable progress. In this podcast, we talk about the importance of leveraging the tension between your current reality and future desired outcomes and some of the negative consequences if you over-focus on one to the neglect of the other. We also share some personal experiences about leveraging these tensions and what you can learn from them.

#172: Avoiding the Pot Holes on the Journey From Who You Are To Who You Want to

In this episode, we talk about avoiding the potholes on the journey from who you are to who you want to become as a healthcare leader. We know many emerging or evolving leaders have the intention and greater purpose of becoming the best version of themselves as a leader. But most healthcare leaders feel like they don’t have the capability or have lost their confidence when transitioning or stepping into a new role. Therefore, it’s important to leverage the tension between honoring who you are today and stepping into who you want to be, so you can be your best self as a leader and achieve your greater purpose in life. In this podcast, we talk about why it’s important to leverage both tensions and some of the negative consequences if you over-focus on one to the neglect of the other.

#170: The Importance of Leveraging Intent and Impact for Emerging Healthcare Leaders

In this episode, we talk about leveraging Intent and Impact and why it’s important for emerging healthcare leaders. We know every leader wants to have a positive impact on their team and organization, but they may have a deeper fear that they will become ineffective as a leader. In fact, most healthcare leaders have great intentions to make a greater difference but fail to act on them because no one has taught them how to balance the tension between Intent and Impact. In this podcast, we talk about why it’s essential to leverage this tension to become an effective healthcare leader and some of the negative consequences if you don’t have a dynamic balance between the two. We also talk about the positive outcome of leveraging Intent and Impact and why it requires self-awareness and vigilance to balance this tension.

#167: Leveraging Personal Change and Stability for TRU Healthcare Leaders

In this episode, we talk about leveraging personal Change and Stability and why it's important for Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable (TRU) healthcare leaders. We know leaders deal with ongoing challenges and changes daily, and their attention has been on their team and organization. In fact, many healthcare leaders have let go of their personal rituals and routines that bring Stability because of the workload and other challenges brought on by the pandemic. The thing is, without Change and Stability, you'll feel powerless and stuck, and you're at risk of change happening to you instead of you leading the change in your own life. Therefore, Change and Stability is an important personal tension or polarity to manage now with the current healthcare situation. In this podcast, we talk about the importance of recognizing Change and Stability as a polarity and why it's an important tension to manage in healthcare, not only at the organization level but at the personal level, too.

#152: A Caring Series: Caring for Each Other

In this third and final episode of our 3-part series, we talk about Caring for Each Other and how you can spend more time caring for each other in your leadership teams as fellow leaders and friends. We know that new leaders feel incredibly lonely as they have been literally "thrown in" into leadership roles with minimal management experience and have so much to navigate through the constant stress and change. In fact, it's not uncommon for most healthcare leaders these days to "feel alone." The other thing is that healthcare leaders often feel isolated because they have a fear of being seen as weak, especially when leaders have been indoctrinated to become strong, so there's a fear of saying we need to "Care for Each Other." In this podcast, we talk about some examples of Caring for Each Other and how it's different from Caring for Others. We also talk about the Gallup published article in 2018: Why We Need Best Friends at Work and some of the limiting beliefs about building relationships at work.

In this second episode of our three-part series, we discuss Caring for Others and why it’s important for Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable (TRU) leaders. We know serving others is in your DNA as healthcare clinicians and leaders. We’ve been indoctrinated to become servant leaders, always focusing on the needs of our team and organization before our own needs. Servant leadership is not a bad thing. In fact, this approach to leadership is very rewarding and honorable until you “over-serve” and neglect yourself. As a result, you’ll end up feeling stressed, exhausted, and unfulfilled. In this podcast, we share a few of our tips for Caring for Others that we put into action with our team, clients, and families. We also discuss some of the benefits of Caring for Others and some of the consequences of over-serving your team and organizations.

#150: A Caring Series: Caring for Self

In this first episode of a 3-part series, we focus on Caring for SELF and why it's essential for Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable (TRU) leaders. We know most healthcare leaders have a limiting belief that self-care is selfish.  In fact, we've been indoctrinated to put ourselves last in the lists of our priorities. The thing is, if you overfocus on "Others" to the neglect of caring for "YOU", you'll experience negative consequences and end up feeling burnt out, exhausted, and your needs go unmet. In this podcast, we share WHY you need to be cared for first, what we have learned personally and professionally, and some great SELF CARE action steps to care for you. We also talk about some of the leader's limiting beliefs about self-care and why prioritizing yourself is important.

In this second episode of our three-part series, we focus on leveraging Polarity Intelligence™, which is Pillar #2 of our Dynamic Balance EffectTM (DBE) Framework. Polarity Intelligence applies the “missinglogic” to leverage the unavoidable tensions and challenges impacting your daily life.

If you treat them as problems and you don’t realize that you’re experiencing unmanaged polarities, you will realize your greatest fears and end up failing. In this podcast, we talk about the numerous tensions that act on you and how to identify and leverage them to establish a balanced life. We also talk about four crux personal polarities and their early warning signs, and negative outcomes if you over-focus on one over the other.

Every human being has masculine and feminine energy, but it’s often misunderstood that feminine energy only comes with a woman or masculine energy only comes with a man.If your masculine energy and feminine energy are unbalanced, one of those energies becomes dominant, and you will feel off-balanced in your life and experience negative consequences.Therefore, understanding how to leverage both energies will help you understand the shifts that are happening at a global level to balance this energy.In this episode, we talk about a foundational “Mother Polarity” or “Master Polarity” of Masculine and Feminine Energy and how you can leverage them.We also talk about some actions to increase your masculine and feminine energies and how these energies can contribute to burnout when there is an overemphasis on one energy over the other.For full show notes and links, visit:https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcastIf you found value in this episode, please subscribe and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!Enrollment is open to our Self-Study Program, Caring for Others Without Neglecting YOU!This self-study program is specifically designed for healthcare leaders like you, so you can find a way to care for your team without neglecting you.Click Here NOW to learn more and enroll!SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS: https://www.linkedin.com/company/missinglogic-llc https://www.facebook.com/missinglogicLLC https://twitter.com/MissingLogicLLC https://www.instagram.com/missinglogic_llc/

#132: Calling all Healthcare Leaders! Work-Life Balance is Possible

You've probably heard that work-life balance doesn't exist.Or maybe you've tried to balance your personal and professional life, especially during these challenging times, but you feel like it's impossible to achieve. As healthcare leaders, we're taught to look at challenges and issues as problems to solve and we think that problem-solving is the logic we apply to all challenges we face.Are we right?The thing is, not every problem is solvable, and if you can't recognize that the challenge isn't a problem to solve, then you're going to fail over time.In this episode, we reveal that Work-Life Balance is possible and why you can achieve it as a healthcare leader.We also discuss why some problems are not solvable, what a polarity is, how they work, and how you can take a different approach to manage them.For full show notes and links, visit:https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcastIf you found value in this episode, please subscribe and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS: https://www.linkedin.com/company/missinglogic-llc https://www.facebook.com/missinglogicLLC https://twitter.com/MissingLogicLLC https://www.instagram.com/missinglogic_llc/

#118: Can We Create New Leadership Norms in Healthcare?

In healthcare one of the leadership norms is leaders sacrifice, they put everyone else first. This is especially true now, during these challenging times.You’ve been indoctrinated to be a servant leader, always focusing on the needs of the team, the organization, the patients and families, before giving attention to your own needs.Servant leadership is not a bad thing, until you “over-serve” and neglect yourself.With this unipolar approach of leadership, healthcare leaders end up burned out, exhausted, and empty.In this podcast, we discussed redefining leadership norms and taking advantage of our current situation to reset, relook, and reevaluate everything to create a new reality and leadership approach.For full show notes and links, visit:https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcastIf you found value in this episode, please subscribe and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!Enrollment is now open to our  Self-Study Program, Caring for Others Without Neglecting YOU!In this self-study program, you will learn why neglecting yourself to care for your team will always lead to failure.

And left unspoken and unaddressed, blame, shame, and guilt often permeate the organization's culture and erode its ability to thrive in the future.We discussed how trauma affects the individuals and the organization's culture, how institutions can recover from the pandemic, and how healthcare leaders create stability amid uncertainty and traumatic events to become stronger and better on the other side.At the close of the interview, Mark and Diana answered a couple of questions from our new Q&A process called the Missing Questions.For full show notes and links, visit:https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcastIf you found value in this episode, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!If you have questions for us email your questions to [email protected] is now open to our Self-Study Program, Caring for Others Without Neglecting YOU!  Click Here NOW to learn more and enroll!In this training, you will learn why neglecting yourself to take care of your team will always lead to failure.

#116: How to Create a Vision for Your Professional and Personal Life

Do you have a vision for your life personally and professionally?  In the work we do with healthcare leaders we often find they don’t have a clear vision for their life. Without a clear vision it’s difficult to feel personally aligned, to make mindful choices, or to know what actions to take.  As Yogi Berra says, “You got to be careful, if you don’t know where you are going, ‘cause you might not get there”.  You end up feeling frustrated, full of regret, and wondering “how did I get here?”  In today’s episode we are sharing with you how to create a clear vision for your personal and professional life, so you can be a TRU (Thriving, Resilient, Unstoppable) healthcare leader.For full show notes and links, visit:https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcastIf you found value in this episode, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!Other Resources You May Enjoy: Self-Study Opportunity:  Enrollment is open to our Self-Study Program, Caring for Others Without Neglecting YOU!  Click Here NOW to learn more and enroll!Click the title to download our free perspective paper:  The 3 Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Leaders Make When Trying To Achieve Work Life Balance If you have questions for us email your questions to [email protected] MEDIA LINKS: https://www.linkedin.com/company/missinglogic-llchttps://www.facebook.com/missinglogicLLChttps://twitter.com/MissingLogicLLChttps://www.instagram.com/missinglogic_llc/

#97: Overcoming the Tension Between Completing Tasks and Practicing at your full Scope of Practice

If you are like many of the clinicians and healthcare leaders we have worked with over the past 30 years, you have experienced the tension between completing routine tasks and practicing at the top of your license or delivering your full scope of practice since the beginning of your career! The tension is real. And the struggle to balance this tension is significant because safe, quality care is dependent on both.   As a leader, you probably already realize one is not more important than the other. In this episode, we talk about the habits that influence this tension between tasks and scope of practice.  Florence Nightingale recognized the importance of understanding habits more than 150 years ago when she said, “This hospital is so busy, in such a hurry that we are falling into bad habits before we are aware.” Toward the close of the episode, we share how healthcare leaders can begin to support their teams to leverage both the fulfillment of routine tasks and practice to their full scope of practice.  It’s obvious that you realize this tension isn’t going away, so listen to the episode and get a fresh perspective on how to manage it!

The past year has been challenging for everyone, but it has been especially challenging for those working in the healthcare system.   The front-line clinicians and staff have experienced extraordinary challenges and trauma, and the healthcare leaders who support them have also faced challenges they never imagined. “I think that our healthcare system and our healthcare leaders have been remarkable in their response,” says Robyn Begley. During the episode we interview Dr. Robyn Begley, the Chief Executive Officer of the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL). We have an opportunity to talk with Robyn about the longitudinal study AONL conducted in July 2020 and repeated in January and February of 2021 to examine the impact of COVID on nursing leadership.

Robyn talks about some of those “silver linings” with us. Robyn shares some of the greatest challenges she’s seen healthcare leaders experience over the past 14 months.  We also talk about some of the greatest challenges faced by leaders when it comes to their own well-being and work life balance.

Creating interprofessional collaborative practice environments has been a long road!

In this episode we talk about the accountabilities healthcare leaders have and the challenges they face in leveraging interprofessional collaboration to fulfill their accountabilities.

#93: (Encore Episode) Unleashing the Power of the Margin and Mission Polarity in Complex Care featuring Lauran Hardin

To say vulnerable populations have been impacted significantly by the COVID-19 pandemic is an understatement.  Yet, at the same time, communities and businesses are partnering to develop innovative solutions to address the disparities that plague this population. “The pandemic is teaching us how interdependent we are on each other, and how creative we can be to solve things locally.” says Lauran. After 2020, when it comes to managing the margin and serving the mission, everything and nothing is the same, and that’s why we thought it would be appropriate to revisit this interview with Lauran Hardin.  During the interview we discuss the over-arching polarity of Margin and Mission.   Everyone is impacted by this polarity.   Both Margin and Mission must be present for the system to be sustainable and provide the healthcare we need. In this interview with Lauran, we look at this polarity within the context of complex care and social needs. Lauran is a leader at the National Center for Complex Care and Social Needs. The center is the home for complex care and is transforming care for people with complex health and social needs.   Lauran is guiding and coaching leaders every day out in the field to manage this polarity.  Her stories and insights are enlightening and inspiring. Lauran shares with listeners why it’s important to understand the importance of the margin and mission polarity when creating programs that impact utilization and revenue. Powerful change and transformation can occur when you understand and marshal the power of both sides of the margin and mission polarity.  Lauran shares some stories that will leave you with a feeling of hope. Join us to learn from Lauran as she shares case studies and outcomes from the world of complex care and social needs. The wisdom Lauran shares is profound!  Listen now!

#92: (Encore Episode) How Leaders Can Leverage a Polarity Mindset to Develop Strong Teams and Cultivate Psychological Safety featuring Diane Hanson

Leaders have been facing one of the most difficult times in their careers.  And it’s not coming to an end any time soon. Let’s face it.  Leadership is not easy on a normal day let alone during a pandemic!  If you are feeling guilty, exhausted, frustrated, and conflicted then you are an overwhelmed healthcare leader. Overwhelmed healthcare leaders are looking for new tools and skills to enhance their effectiveness, change the conversations they’re having, and address the unprecedented challenges they face, while supporting their teams. That’s why we thought it would be appropriate to share this encore episode and interview with our dear friend and colleague Diane Hanson.   We were blessed to interview Diane Hanson.  Diane has leveraged polarities in her personal and professional life for over 20 years and has a lot of wisdom to share with us. Today we are talking about Polarity Thinking™ as an essential leadership skill because Thriving, Resilient, Unstoppable (TRU) leaders don’t need quick fixes that fail, they need new ways of thinking and approached that lead them to long-lasting outcomes. “Once you understand and believe in the logic and predictability of Polarity Thinking™ you are able to move toward sustainable outcomes” says Diane. Diane shares many stories of how she’s leveraged polarities personally, professionally and as a community leader.   Diane believes a great place to start practicing your polarity thinking skills is with personal polarities like Work & Home or Self Care & Others Care.  Look at what’s showing up in your life through a polarity lens and then examine your perspectives, preferences, and fears to gather deeper insights.   Diane notes, “We tend to take care of others before our self. The Self Care & Others Care polarity is a good one for leaders to start with to address burnout.” Join us as we discuss with Diane how leaders can leverage polarities to strengthen their leadership skills, enhance teamwork, and cultivate psychological safety in the workplace.

#91: The Road to Well-Being: It's Personal and Requires Patience, Persistence, and Practice featuring Dr. Seena Haines

It was so inspiring to interview and dialogue with Dr. Seena Haines about well-being.  As we begin our interview, Seena shares with us her personal health professions journey, which leads to a brief discussion on how our experiences and stories inform who we are and what we do.   Seena shares her passion for well-being began with her own personal struggles and the desire to pay it forward.  She informs us that well-being is subjective and influenced by multiple factors including psychosocial resources and support. During the interview we talk about COVID and the impact it’s having on well-being.  Seena shares the most important well-being dimension is human and social connections and how we have all been missing those connections which is impacting resilience.   Seena describes the numerous benefits of yoga and what a well coach is and what they focus on and how they help individuals reach their wellness plan.   Seena also shares a fundamental principle that when it comes to health and well-being patience, persistence, and practice create permanence.  She also believes it is personal.  Focusing on our own personal accomplishments and not comparing ourselves to others is important because our progress is exponential, it just takes time. From Seena’s perspective work life integration requires attention and intention daily.  She shares she manages this by setting 2-3 priorities each day, pockets of buffer time weekly, schedules personal oasis time in the week for play, advance planning, along with numerous other strategies. Speaking to leaders and organizations, Seena describes some actions they can take such as job crafting, engaging employees in redefining responsibilities and duties, and having a firm grasp on the relationship between clinician well-being, patient care, and safety. Seena’s parting message for individual healthcare professionals is “it is not selfish or self- seeking to put your self-care in your top priorities. Just as we are told on a plane that we need to put our own oxygen mask on first before helping others, we are better positioned to sustain and overcome these potholes in life when we carve the time needed to care for ourselves mentally and physically.” We couldn’t agree more! As you probably already realize this is a delightful and informative interview, so don’t hesitate and listen now!

#90: (Encore Episode) The Healthcare Leader as a Role Model for Self-Care: Caring for Yourself and Caring for the Team featuring Dr. Jeanne Roode

One of the consistent messages we are hearing from overwhelmed leaders is they want to do more to care for their team, but they are neglecting themselves in the process.   A leader’s well-being doesn’t have to be in competition with caring for the team. You can care for you and your team. Since this is such a prominent theme in our conversations with leaders today, we thought it would be appropriate to share this encore episode and interview with our dear friend and colleague Dr. Jeanne Roode.   During our interview we discuss the crux tension or polarity of taking care of self and taking care of others.  Jeanne shares her four-year journey on the road to sustainable well-being and what she has learned along the way. Jeanne recognizes that tensions or polarities like these can significantly impact healthcare leaders, especially if they are unaware of them or do not know how to manage them.   From Jeanne’s perspective, 100% commitment to your well-being is not something you wake up one day and decide, it is an evolution.  She describes it as, “a number of moments in your life in which you learn and gain wisdom, that come together to one day be enough to push through the barriers.” Jeanne’s doctoral work focused on the health and well-being of nurses and nurse managers.  She studied the self-care practices of nurses and found their lowest scoring areas were nutrition and exercise.  In her study, nurse managers had the lowest scores in stress management as well as attending to their own stress and learning more about it.  Jeanne has learned what nurses don’t understand, and that is if they don’t attend to their own self-care, and focus on others instead, they are putting everything at risk including attending to others. Jeanne shares some of the ways she’s found to care for her team while caring for herself is to be a role model, provide appreciation and recognition of their stories, and take interest in their personal and professional success. Some recommendations for healthcare leaders engaged in day-to-day COVID-19 planning or management is to trust each other to carry the work, encourage self-care, and share stories of what you are doing to take care of yourself.   How you take care of yourself as a leader cannot be hidden.  Your valuing of self-care shows in everything you do.  You are being watched and whether you are aware of it or not, you are a role model for self-care.

#89: (Encore Episode) A Personal and Professional Story about Clinician Burnout and Resilience featuring Dr. Miguel Paniagua

When we did this initial interview with Dr. Paniagua we had no idea that within a few months we would be facing a global pandemic that would not only add to the stress and mental health challenges healthcare clinicians were already facing but would lead to a parallel pandemic.  In this interview Dr. Miguel Paniagua shared his personal and professional story about burnout, clinician well-being, and resilience.   The interview is as pertinent today as it was a little over a year ago.  There are many healthcare clinicians today, like Dr. Paniagua, who have or are currently experiencing burnout and there are many clinicians who are struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a result of the trauma they experienced at the front line during the COVID pandemic.  Clinician burnout is a unique and personal journey for anyone who experiences it.Lives are at stake!  Not just clinician’s lives but patient’s lives.We now know that poor provider wellness leads to medical errors.  We are fortunate to have Dr. Paniagua to share his personal experience, hitting rock bottom and how it has informed his current work. Professionally, Dr. Paniagua is leading efforts at the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) to understand the stress of high-stake exams and the effect on student well-being, which he shares with us during the interview. Fortunately, during the pandemic, progress has continued at the NBME (see the link below the show notes).Join us for this enlightening conversation with Dr. Paniagua as we talk about the realities of clinician burnout and the system and individual factors that can support clinician well-being and resilience.For full show notes and links, visit:https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcastTo get our FREE perspective paper, The Three Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Leaders Make When Trying to Achieve Work Life Balance  Click Here now!We would love to have you contribute to this podcast by submitting a question that we can feature in a future episode.  All you must do is email your question to  [email protected] If you found value in this episode, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!

#88: Interprofessional Education and Practice Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow featuring Dr. Andrea Pfeifle

In this episode we talk with Dr. Andrea Pfeifle, about the history and future of interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice (IPCP), her experiences as a leader in today’s environments, and some of the barriers that have inhibited progress. Andrea shares her interprofessional journey and a little of how a special relationship with a young boy and his family ignited her love affair with interprofessional collaboration.  She also tells how an invitation, from the Dean of Medicine at University of Kentucky, to lead an interprofessional education initiative at the university launched her interprofessional leadership career and changed her life forever.  In the interview Andrea shares her perspective on how IPE and IPCP have advanced in the last ten years.  Some examples she shares are the transformation of health professions education, the development and dissemination of interprofessional collaborative practice competencies, expansion of IPE across universities and colleges, and the establishment of the National Center of Interprofessional Practice and Education. When it comes to factors that have helped foster IPE and IPCP over the years Andrea, shares with our listeners she feels there is a sense intuitively that it’s the “right thing to do” and it “feels right”, which makes it easier to engage people as champions.  Many key stakeholders and groups have engaged in the effort in the last ten years and some key publications have also contributed to making it happen as well.   There have been some barriers along the way, too!  Andrea talks about some of the barriers including the implicit bias that lies beneath the healthcare system and shapes the models of care, decisions, reimbursement, and structure of healthcare. Another significant challenge Andrea mentions is scalability. We discuss the need for simultaneous action to move IPE and IPCP forward and the importance of having infrastructures, education and practice partnerships, and outcome measurement. At the close of the interview Andrea shares her hope over the next 10 years is that integrated team practice is the standard and it’s designed with patients, families, and learners. This interview includes a remarkable synthesis of the efforts and actions taken to advance IPE and IPCP and is full of important information describing the current state.  If you’re interested in IPE and IPCP you will want to stop what you are doing and listen now!

We didn’t think when we conducted this interview back in June of 2020 that we would still be facing significant challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.    This episode is as relevant now as it was when we originally recorded it.    During this episode we interview our dear friend and colleague Dr. Barry Johnson about two crux polarities/tensions we are facing as a nation during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The two polarities/tensions we discuss during the interview are Health And Economy and Individual Freedom And the Common Good.  These two polarities/tensions impact every person in the United States.     The interview is based on two Op-Ed pieces included in Barry’s new book, AND Making a difference by leveraging polarity, paradox, or dilemma- Volume One: Foundations.   This interview can change how you think about these two tensions that we are experiencing daily in our communities and in the country.  We think it’s safe to say we all want a country with healthy people and a healthy economy and at the same time there is a fear that as the pandemic continues we will end up with more unhealthy people and further insult to a declining economy in our country.    The truth is these polarities/tensions were present before the COVID-19 pandemic, and we must manage them now and after the pandemic.    The question is, what can we learn now, during the pandemic, to help us manage them in future?  That is the purpose of this podcast, to help us learn to see these tensions through a new lens, explore why it is important to manage them, and identify how we can manage them better in the future.  A few considerations before listening: If this is your first time listening to the podcast, you may find it helpful to listen to Episode #1 where we explain polarities before listening to this episode.    The Op-Ed pieces are available below the show notes and if you are in a location where it is possible, we encourage you to download both pieces before you listen to the episode. Barry refers to the Polarity Map® in the Op-Ed pieces during the interview, so it will be helpful to have them in hand.  There isn’t anyone in the Unites States who can escape the impact of these two polarities. We urge you to listen to this episode now and share it with your family, friends, colleagues, and communities.    For full show notes and links, visit: https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcast    To get our FREE perspective paper, TheThree Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Leaders Make When Trying to Achieve Work Life Balance  Click Here now!   We would love to have you contribute to this podcast by submitting a question that we can feature in a future episode.  All you must do is email your question to  [email protected]     If you found value in this episode, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!

In this episode we talk with co-authors, Dr. Mark Goulston and Dr. Diana Hendel, about their book Why Cope When You Can Heal?  How Healthcare Heroes of COVID-19 Can Recover from PTSD.  In their book, Mark and Diana paint the picture of the “perfect storm for trauma” that is being experienced by healthcare workers today.   In the interview Diana shares her perspective that healthcare workers are the grittiest, toughest, most resilient people in our society.   But we are living in the downside of our societal “just get over it” culture and aren’t giving equal attention to the processing which is essential for healing.    We discuss why it’s important to bear witness to this moment in history and to not “rush past the tragedies that have been experienced.”  Diana describes the numerous experiences healthcare workers have had during the pandemic that have contributed to the experience of moral injury and traumatic stress.  Mark and Diana also share their perspectives on the pending serious mental health and PTSD crisis that is inevitable in the healthcare system.    At the close of the interview Diana shares some words of wisdom for healthcare leaders regarding what is and will be required by leaders during these traumatic times.   This is an interview jam packed with priceless information for anyone who is working in healthcare today.  Stop what you are doing and listen now!To get our FREE perspective paper, TheThree Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Leaders Make When Trying to Achieve Work Life Balance  Click Here now!

#85 ENCORE Episode: How to Make A Positive Difference in the World and Stop Making False Either/Or Choices featuring Dr. Barry Johnson

We are thrilled to provide this Encore episode of our interview with our dear friend and mentor  Dr. Barry Johnson.  Barry is the author of AND:  Making a Difference by Leveraging Polarity, Paradox, or Dilemma.  Volume One: Foundations.   AND is for people interested in making a positive difference in the world or in any part of their life as a citizen, a family member, or an individual within an organization.    Volume One of AND covers the application of fundamental polarities from different system perspectives and how different polarities show up in the brain.  Barry suggests learning about polarities is easiest when you work from the smallest system up.  So, beginning with polarities that have meaning for you as an individual enables you to see quickly how the same polarity is applicable across other levels of the system.   During our interview with Barry, we explore how Both/And thinking overcomes resistance to change and polarization and is an essential step in making a difference. We also discuss how misdiagnosing polarities as problems and how leaders pay a price twice when this occurs.  You probably already realize, if you want to make a difference in the world understanding polarities is essential and this book is a must read!   Go ahead and listen to this thought- provoking interview now!    For full show notes and links, visit: https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcast  To get our FREE perspective paper, TheThree Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Leaders Make When Trying to Achieve Work Life Balance  Click Here now!   We would love to have you contribute to this podcast by submitting a question that we can feature in a future episode.  All you must do is email your question to  [email protected]    If you found value in this episode, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!

#82 Our Healthcare Future: The Complexity, Challenges, and Constraints featuring Susan Dentzer

It was a pleasure to talk with Susan Dentzer about the important work she is doing at the Robert J. Margolis Center for Health Policy at Duke University, the complexity of healthcare, and some of the challenges the healthcare system and leaders are facing today.  Areas of focus for the Center have been health system transformation and specifically the transition from volume to value payment, biopharmaceuticals, medical products/devices, global innovation, and most recently health equity.   Early in the interview Susan shares that before COVID, in her role as Senior Policy Fellow, she was interested in value-based payment and opportunities for delivery system transformation. More specifically she was interested in moving healthcare closer to the people leveraging technology rather than brining people into the healthcare environment.  Spreading health into people and the communities to improve population health was another interest she held.  Susan reveals one of the things that she has focused on more since COVID is telehealth, how it is being utilized now, what’s working and not working, and the path forward.     During the episode we discuss the lessons being learned about telehealth, and the challenges yet to be overcome as we move past the COVID pandemic.  We also talk about how telehealth is one-half of an interdependent relationship with the other half representing the ability to provide face-to-face and hands-on care when needed.  We dialogue about how the tension between this pair shows up as resistance and fears.   During the episode Susan shares her thoughts about the current healthcare system business model, which is deeply rooted in fee-for-service, and how it creates a barrier to healthcare delivery transformation.    Susan was the editor of the book “Health Care Without Walls:  A Roadmap for Reinventing U.S. Health Care System” prepared by the Network for Excellence in Health Innovation(NEHI).  She shares some background on the book and why it was written.  Another topic we discussed during the interview is  the need to transform education of future clinicians to prepare them for the delivery of care without walls, innovation, and the need for ongoing continuing education to meet healthcare needs in an ever-changing reality.   If you are interested in being involved in policy or advocacy, Susan has some suggestions on where to start.   She also encourages you to never underestimate what you know and the experiences you have had because you will be shocked at what others don’t know or what they don’t understand about current healthcare realities.     You probably already realize this is an informative and important dialogue for anyone who is interested in healthcare transformation.  Go ahead and listen now!Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions, we may use your question on a future episode.  If you found value in this episode, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!   Our mission is to start “a movement” of leaders who address the chronic challenges in healthcare through a Polarity Thinking™ lens!  If you're the kind of leader wants to help others, share this with your peers.   Visit the show notes here for more: https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcast

#81 Setting and Keeping Boundaries: The Secret to Preventing Overwhelm and Becoming a Thriving and Resilient Healthcare Leader

If you are like many of the overwhelmed healthcare leaders we talk with you feel stretched beyond your capabilities on a day-to-day basis.    One of the ways you can have more energy, time and balance in your life is to establish boundaries.  In this episode we explore why it’s important to set boundaries, how boundaries can lead to resilience and balance in your life, and how they are a form of self-care.  Continually adding more to your plate and not taking anything off results in stress and overwhelm.  While the COVID pandemic may have taken a few things off your plate, it may also have added so much more!  During times like this it can also become increasing difficult to say “No”.   “It’s only by saying ‘NO’ that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.”- Steve Jobs  You are not always in control of what ends up on your plate or within your realm of responsibility as a leader.  There are somethings you can control and that’s where you can put your attention when it comes to setting boundaries and beginning to flex your “NO” muscle.  Identifying and managing any barriers you may have is an essential element of successful boundary setting.  Thriving and resilient healthcare leaders are committed to setting and keeping boundaries, so they can stay focused on what matters most, achieve their goals, and experience greater success.  You may or may not already realize this, but this episode is full of information that can help you gain more energy, time, and balance in your life!  Don’t hesitate, listen now.Visit the show notes here for more: https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcast   You can sign up to be on our Work Life Balance Bootcamp Early Interest List on our website at www.missinglogic.com/new-events  Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions, we may use your question on a future episode.

#80 Supporting Mindful Choices, Polarity Intelligence™ and Personal Alignment with the Dynamic Balance Effect™ Framework

If you are like most of the healthcare leaders we talk with, the past year was a year full of challenges and changes. It looks like based on what we have seen thus far in 2021 those challenges are going to continue for a while longer.    Some of those challenges and changes may have bumped up against some of your values, like maintaining your well-being, supporting your team(s), and connecting with others.  You may have even experienced some moral distress having to make decisions that are not aligned with your values.  In this episode we dialogue about making choices based on values, managing interdependent values and the importance of personal alignment.   We share how our Dynamic Balance Effect™ Framework empowers healthcare leaders to make mindful choices, leverage their Polarity Intelligence™, personally align their values and purpose, and how important each of these are when it comes to resilience and balance.  You probably already realize this episode is packed with leadership super-powers!  Go ahead and listen now.Visit the show notes here for more: https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcast   Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions, we may use your question on a future episode.Go Here to join the Work Life Balance Bootcamp Early Interest List and download our FREE perspective paper The 3 Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Leaders Make When Trying To Achieve Work Life Balance.

#79 Navigating the Rough Waters of Being a Nurse When a Family Member is Ill featuring Roberta Young

It was a delight to interview Roberta Young about her article Being a Nurse in the Family.  Roberta explains what led up to co-authoring the article in My American Nurse in January of 2020 with her colleague Teresa Anderson.   During the episode we discuss these unique situations and how the experience can be leveraged to improve or change how one chooses to practice as a nurse.  Even though the conversation centers on nurses’ experiences, we acknowledge other clinicians also have similar experiences.    Early in the interview Roberta shares during the pauses in her career over the past few years she took advantage of that time to reflect.  During that time, she realized she can get swept up in leadership roles, working long hours and giving of herself.  She concluded she would be a better leader if she lived intentionally, maintained balance in her life, and paid attention to herself.    Roberta reveals one of the things that has come out of her work in creating work life balance and defining her values and what matters most is a sense that she can write and document meaningful stories.  Roberta shares her thoughts about storytelling and how we remember
