Because Great Healthcare Workers Don't Become
Great Leaders on Their Own
Mindful Leadership Development by a CEO with 18 Years as a Healthcare Chief Executive
Keynote Speeches, Programs and Coaching for:
New Managers / Teams / Executives
"The challenges of today's healthcare environment mean that you need to do more with less yet remain quality focused in a highly regulated industry. You promote your star performers then realize they're not prepared. They get frustrated, you end up doing their work and worst case scenario - they quit and you've lost your investment in them. I deliver keynote speeches on the value and "how to" of mindful leadership as well as train and develop new managers, teams and executives. I call out the unique and develop mindfulness, alignment, self-regulation, communication, executive presence, empathy, and systems thinking so that you can go back to what you do best and they can be productive and effective."
~ Mary Lee Gannon
Gallup reports that only 30% of U.S. workers are engaged in their work.
What are you losing in productivity due to underdeveloped leadership?
If you're not sure where you'll be in a year, you're already there.

Mary Lee on Your Mindful Leadership Impact
"Leadership starts from the inside out. No expensive suit, shoes or accessory is going to make up for dignity, understanding, grace and refined taste. No expensive handbag or pen will substitute for integrity, charity, patience, humility, positivity and character. We begin by working with the individual - their self-awareness and self-management, their effectiveness and alignment with the organization’s mission, values, and goals. We focus on improving interpersonal relationships and creating high performing teams. Finally, we research and analyze an individual’s interpersonal skills from a 360 perspective and design interventions to achieve measurable results. Life isn’t a dress rehearsal. Every day is opening night for your company and your career.
"A report in the Harvard Business Review May 2014 issue revealed that fewer than 20% of leaders have a strong individual purpose. The mindful impact of your influence is the single most important developmental task you will undertake as a leader. Your purpose and how you influence is your brand, what drives you, what you're known for. It's not what you do, it's how you do it and why. It's your signature - the strengths and passions you bring to the table no matter where you are seated. It is your identity - the essence of who you are. It is what is uniquely you and others miss when you are not there. I help you mindfully position yourself to enthuse a movement so that you achieve transformational success." ~ Mary Lee Gannon, ACC, CAE

8 Tips to
DISCOVER Mindful Leadership
D – Decide to Change. Talk about what you are changing. Write it down. Be self-aware without judgment. Keep a gratitude journal.
I – Investigate Yourself. What have you forgotten about your strengths? What do you observe in silence? What do you value? What do you love?
S – Sit on Your Ego. Say nothing. Listen only. Forgive. Be kind to the unkind. They need it most.
C – Confront Doubt. What fear is running your life? Welcome in limiting beliefs to desensitize to them.
O – Out Your Anxiety. Anxiety if practicing failure in advance. It is outside of you. Who are you without that thought?
V – Visualize Your Success. In one year what will have happened for this to have been a great year? Pick an image, memory, saying that motivates you.
E – Execute Affirmations. Write, recite and live “I am” statements: “I am a revered leader.” “I am healthy.” “I am grateful.” “I am compassionate.” Say them out loud every night before you go to sleep.
R – Realize the Moment. Get off the treadmill. Wake up from autopilot. Lean in to vulnerability. Accept what is without judgment. Celebrate the magic of now.
