A Great Idea Isn’t Enough for Successful Change

March 3 from 1:00 – 2:00 ET

Presented by Mark Jaben, M.D., author of the book “Free the Brain”

About Mark:

Mark is a residency trained, board certified Emergency Physician with over 35 years of clinical experience. After 20 years in a single hospital group, he spent the next 13 years as an independent emergency physician practicing in a wide range of settings, including hospitals, Indian Health Service facilities, office practices, and EMS services.

His initial immersion into Lean came in 2008 while living and working in Taupo, New Zealand, where he had the opportunity to test Lean methodology while leading implementation efforts at the hospital there. After returning to the US, he continued to apply these concepts in emergency departments, hospitals, clinics, and regional collaborations.

Observing the successes, as well as the trials and tribulations, led Mark to delve further into why this stuff does or does not work. His newly released book, Free the Brain: Overcoming the Struggle People and Organizations Face With Change, takes a look at what neuroscience research says about how the brain operates and provides some real insight into what prevents an organization from getting the results they are after from whatever methodology they are using and what it takes to garner engagement and tap into creativity.

In addition, Mark works with individual physicians struggling with burnout as a coach with TheHappyMD.com and with organizations through presentations and trainings. The intersection between clinical work, coaching practice, and Free the Brain has been quite illuminating in understanding just why change can be so challenging and yet so rewarding.
