EXECUTIVE BOOK SUMMARY
Below is a summary of the book written by CTI Leadership’s CEO, Mo Kasti, about Physician Engagement.
BEYOND PHYSICIAN ENGAGEMENT:
A ROADMAP TO PARTNER WITH PHYSICIANS TO BE ALL IN!
As CEO of CTI’s Physician Leadership Institute, I’ve seen the power of strong physician engagement firsthand. I’ve also witnessed the problems that occur when physician are not engaged, and it isn’t pretty. It is a safety threat.
Engagement is critical in today’s ever-changing healthcare system. It can improve clinical outcomes, boost patient experience and safety scores, and promote a positive culture throughout the organization. Yet metrics among physicians are at a mere 10 percent.
I believe we have been approaching engagement in healthcare all wrong. We’ve made it a metric and held our managers accountable over our physicians. But physicians are professionals and don’t need parents, they need partners.
The book reveals real-life examples of leaders who have been successful at engaging their physicians by acting as partners – co-leading, co-creating and working together to establish trust. It provides readers with a progressive road map that blends the art of leadership, neuroscience, language and conversation.
It is time to go beyond engagement!
