Dave’s latest book is The Best Medicine, A Physician’s Guide to Effective Leadership, which provides a theoretical framework for visionary leadership as well as specific management techniques to achieve success. The authors focus on maintaining a consistent set of behavioral characteristics for both the leader and the organization as a whole. The text is written in a conversational style using the authors’ personal experiences and case studies to illustrate the principles and practices of successful leaders. When helpful, the large body of observational work on professional group dynamics is referenced. The text also provides ideal supplemental material for the many leadership programs offered by physician organizations and health care systems. Developed by Dave and his co-author Dr. Bruce Gewertz, an accomplished physician leader from one of the nation’s finest hospital systems, The Best Medicine: A Physician’s Guide to Effective Leadership is of great value to physicians of all levels who are interested in improving their understanding of leadership styles and tactics.
People become managers by going through a process of identifying their strengths, planning a course of study, and executing it with discipline. When it comes time for people to become leaders – and amplify their impact – most people try to use the same process, and it fails. Leadership development does follow a flow, but it’s opposite of what people think.
In this session, Dave will share simple guides from his upcoming book Be This, Not That: Turning Managers Into Leaders, curated from the best leaders of the past 100 years that helped each make lasting changes in impact and the world. Largely based on 30 years of consulting research and his long-time friendship with transformational leadership guru Warren Bennis, this book provides guides of leadership that have the power to transform careers, businesses and lives.
Every organization and company is a tribe, or a network of tribes—groups of 20 to 150 people that form naturally, in which everyone knows everyone else, or at least knows of them. In this highly interactive session, speaker Dave Logan show participants how to upgrade their organization one tribe at a time. The result is unprecedented impact, innovation, and success at hitting key performance goals. At the heart of this session is the principals’ ten-year study on 24,000 people (published in 2008 by HarperCollins as Tribal Leadership by Logan, King, and Fischer-Wright) that mapped, for the first time, five stages of corporate culture and the unique leverage points to nudge a group forward.
The result is industry-leading productivity, innovation, collaboration, and job satisfaction. The other benefits include that participants will be able to:
Most leaders agree that culture is the critical factor in performance, but can’t define it, measure it, or change it. As a result, the few organizations that get culture right seem magical, and people who try to replicate their success usually end up frustrated and cynical. Dave shows two simple steps-diagnosis and then the best treatment that leaders take to build cultures that can do things most people think is impossible: out-innovating, outperforming, creating an immunity to scandals, and having mountains of fun in the process.
Tribal Leadership:“Tribal Leadership is the best book on cultural transformation I’ve read in many years, maybe ever.”— Mark Goulston, “Leading Edge” columnist at Fast Company magazine and bestselling author of Get Out of Your Own Way at Work
