15A Culture of Excellence Attracts and retains talentAchieves excellent clinical outcomesSparks employee generated ideasPerception of care high level – “would recommend”Grows according to planFinancially outperforms competition
16The Knowing – Doing GapThere is a huge gap between knowing the importance of operational excellence - and doing it every day. What kind of culture do you really want to create and keep at your organization?” Now there is not that much “new” and exciting in this. In fact, there are over 9,000 articles on the internet about customer service. But as one of my favorite CEO’s says hereThere is a huge gap between knowing or believing in something and doing it every day.

38Must Haves® Aligning Leader Evaluations with Desired Outcomes Rounding for OutcomesEmployee Thank You NotesEmployee Selection and the First 90 DaysPre and Post Phone CallsKey Words at Key Times
39What is Rounding with Outcomes? Proactively, engaging, listening to, communicating with, building relationships with and supporting your most important customers (employees, family, patients, physicians, and other departments)
40Rounding for Outcomes is NOT… The proverbial waveManagement by wandering aroundFocused on “what’s wrong”Being “out there”Happenstance
41Rounding WorksRounding will have the biggest impact on your employee and customer satisfaction resultsBuilds the team – elevates performanceBreaks down barriers, fixes systems, ensures right tools and equipment are in placeEmphasizes the positive instead of negative
42Turnover and Vacancy Rate New updateSource: Florida Hospital System, Admissions=69,107 Total beds = 1,218
44 When leaders provide follow up on rounding at their staff meetings, they should say: “During the past 30 days, I have rounded on 32 employees.As a result of my rounding we have been able to acquire 3 blood pressure cuffs, 2 key boards, as well as rework the supply cabinet. I also was able to recognize 10 individuals that you suggested receive recognition. Thank you for your help.”
45Round With Patients Set clear expectations Focus on key questions Outline what to do ifproblems are discoveredClosing statementReward and recognize staff
46Questions for Patients Do you know your nurse’s and CNA's name today?Do you know your schedule?How has your nursing care been?Have we managed your pain well?Do you have any concerns or questions?
49Must Have #6 - Key WordsThings said and done to “connect the dots” and help patients, staff and physicians understand why we do things and what is going on

51Managing Up Positioning Others in a Positive Light . . . Makes you betterMakes your organization betterAligns everyone
52The Great Erasers “We’re short-staffed” “Can’t; But; No; Our policy” “That’s not my patient”“You know how Administration is around here”“That’s not my job (problem)”“I can’t believe they kept you waiting so long”“No one told me you were here”“We have real emergencies ahead of you”“We can’t get good help”
53Health Care Initiatives Have Not Been Sustained . . .
54Why Organizations Do Not Achieve Desired Results Rev 3.08Dots are not connected consistently to purpose, worthwhile work and making a differenceDo not achieve critical mass - Lack of balanced approachAbsence of an objective accountability systemLeaders do not have the training to be successfulToo many new behaviors introduced at once – need for sequenced approachNo process in place to re-recruit the exceeding and achieving performers and address low performers (HML)Inability to take best practices and standardize across organizationFailure to have leaders “always” do desired behaviors
55Studer Group – Lessons learned Since 2000 This is a lot harder than anyone thought – Why?Trying to align behavior of more people than other initiativesAs your organization improves, inconsistencies become apparentNon-documented performance issuesIt is not a patient satisfaction/service excellence program. It is putting into place an operational framework for:Alignment of resourcesAccountability of peopleExecution/Implementation of plans and processesObjective evaluation is the sustainerSequencing of tools are vitalOne should not move on to the next tool/tactic if the preceding tool/tactic is not hardwiredSMDifference between cookie-cutter approach and evidenced-based leadershipSM
60Consider… What do you want to be known for? Do you create memories for your patients?Can you be exceptional or extraordinary?
61Leaders capture the hearts and minds of their staff… “You cannot lead by hitting people over the head –that is assault,not leadership.”– Dwight Eisenhower
62You must keep raising the bar – everyone else is
63Connect to Purpose…Our patients depend on us and we depend on you. Yours might be the first face they see when they come through our door. Yours might be the voice they hear right after a surprise diagnosis. Yours might be the eyes they look into as they are pushed in a wheelchair to a frightening procedure. Your attitude reflects us and everything we are proud of in this organization. You have chosen to help serve our patients and we appreciate you. Thank you.
