l am often enticed to click on advertisements in articles that I am reading with titles similar to the title of this post.  Since the Holidays and end of the year responsibilities find me short on time, I’d like to tease my next post with the following list of things that many organizations do to undermine their culture and condemn their efforts to drive improvement to failure.  One of the most important(and least considered!) steps in implementing strategies to improve performance is getting buy in from staff.  Take a look at the list below and reflect on whether you or your organization has committed the following sins this Christmas Season:

  • Ignore Staff Satisfaction
  •  Experience Frequent Executive Turnover
  •  Fail to Articulate a Clear Vision
  •  Fail to Prioritize Patient Satisfaction
  •  Accept Mediocrity, Institute a Non-merit Based System for Advancement, Nepotism
