Executive Coaching Program - Hogan Leadership

Have you ever felt caught up in a tornado where the winds are howling, you and everything you know is spinning in the air, and feel like you can’t get your ground? Welcome to the world of Healthcare!

You feel like that because that is what you and every other healthcare leader is experiencing right now. The only definite is that things have to be different so that healthcare is more affordable, accessible, and quality-driven.

Wiederhold & Associates knows healthcare and the unique culture and dynamics within which you have to work. We know you have “no” discretionary time. We know what worked in the past will not get you to where you and your organization need to go in the future. This requires transformation: a quantum leap, not baby steps.

Wiederhold & Associates’ Executive Coaches use approaches that go beyond providing you skills. We don’t want you to just “do” things differently: we want you to “be” different. One of our favorite testimonials is this quote from a client: “Others give me skills. You change me!”

To be truly patient-centered requires a different way of thinking: a different mindset. Our coaches will use proven methods to challenge your current assumptions; motivate you to go beyond your comfort zone, to enhance strategic partnerships and achieve results that impact your bottom line and the patient.

In this program I am joined by a colleague, Joy Goldman RN, MS, PCC. Joy is an accomplished professional in leadership coaching, learning and organizational effectiveness. Joy has walked in your shoes. She has been the highest nursing executive in a community-based hospital. With a more than 30-year career in healthcare, Joy’s expertise and experience has included direct clinical care, nursing administration, leadership and organizational effectiveness, and executive and physician-leadership coaching. Joy’s work has included executive coaching to support culture change, executive onboarding and assimilation, and improvement in leadership and team effectiveness.

1. WHAT?

HoganLead gives leaders a clear understanding of their performance capabilities, challenges, and core drivers, and provides them the strategic self-awareness that makes good leaders great. For companies, HoganLead has been used to:

  • Predict job performance
  • Evaluate career derailers
  • Identify potential
  • Develop leaders

The graphic describes how the three assessments in the Leadership Forecast Series work together to predict job performance.

Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI): measures normal personality characteristics necessary for job fit, effective relationships, and career success.

Hogan Development Survey (HDS): is the industry standard for measuring career derailing personality characteristics, that, when used in context of job requirements and culture, can proactively identify risks and help to develop strategies to mitigate risk.

Motivations, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI): reveals a person’s core values, goals, and interests, which impact organizational fit and indicate environments in which individuals will be motivated and satisfied.

As every engagement survey will tell you: People are happiest and most effective when they are doing what they do best. HoganLead helps the leader and the organization determine best fit and best role.

  • You’re an executive in transition and you want to make sure you’re moving towards something vs. running away from something.
  • You’re a physician contemplating leaving clinical work and are considering an administrative role so that you can have greater impact on health care reform.
  • You’re a seasoned executive and you are interested in taking your performance to the next level.
  • You’re a leader who feels like you’re a hamster in a wheel, spinning as fast as you can but feeling disheartened about where you’re going. Something’s missing and your work has to be about more than meeting bottom line.
