Leaders want to be confident, well-regarded champions of high performing organizations and thriving work cultures. It’s discouraging and frustrating when you invest time, money and resources in work place initiatives and the tensions and conflicts are not resolved, problems reoccur, and positive results are not sustained. When strategies are not successful it influences how you are perceived and how successful you are as a leader in your organization. At MissingLogic we leverage our years of experience to coach healthcare leaders to get out of the problem-solving box and embrace a new way of looking at the tension between culture and performance with a Polarity Thinking™ lens. We guide you in identifying, measuring and leveraging the crux polarities in your organization that when not addressed result in wasted time, money and resources. This enables you to confidently and successfully implement performance and culture strategies that lead to sustainable positive outcomes.

 

The National Center is charged to provide the leadership, evidence and resources needed to guide the nation on interprofessional education and collaborative practice.  
In that pursuit, we aim to challenge tradition and create a deeply connected, integrated learning system that will transform education and care together.
