Here's what you can expect from this free webinar:


What can healthcare learn from
non-healthcare HROs?

"High reliability organization" is a term used in complex, high-risk industries, like: nuclear power plants, submarines, air travel, and space programs. So what can healthcare learn from such different industries?


Why is leadership a foundational component of HROs?

Whether you're a scientist, an astronaut, a captain, or a nuclear engineer—whatever the industry—there is a common variable, leadership style. So why are more self-awareness leaders a common theme across reputable HROs?


How can running a zoo help you make better leadership decisions?

You don't actually need to run a zoo. But we do recommend looking for inspiration and information everywhere. We'll put the question to Deborah Cannon, "How has running a zoo, made you a more effective hospital board chair?"
