    Powerful Patient meets Youth Services

    in Health

    Father Donald E. Mowery is the retired leader of Youth Services globally.  He has had a radio show, Talk it Out with Father Don, on WHBQ radio in Memphis, Tennessee, for the past 45 years.  This month Joyce Graff appeared on his show.  Joyce and Father Don have a great conversation about Powerful Patient and its mission, and also about Youth Services and its mission, highlighting many parallels.  In both cases, they work to empower people to work through the issues they cannot change and tackle constructively the things they can change.


    Learn more about Father Don.  A new book, Spiritual Networking, by Darrell B. Uselton and David Yawn, recounts the history of Youth Services in Memphis and worldwide.

    Show #107 - Engagement Specialist Certification Programme

    in Business

    Karin Volo, Chief Joy Bringer – Co-founder Evoloshen


    There aren’t many of these around! Karin Volo, co-author Engage! is joining us to talk about their new International Cultural Engagement Specialist™ certification programme.


    We’ve invited Karin onto the show to find out more about what is covered in their new engagement specialist certification programme and to talk about the reasons that they have created and launched it.


    As you may already know the Engage for Success movement takes a fairly benign view of commercial models, programmes or activity. In other words we are happy to talk about and share them within the movement but without any intention of ‘sponsorship’. We don’t usually stress this on our show pages, given we interview many gurus / service providers, but we felt that it ought to be made clear for this show that this isn’t our programme although we’re very pleased to have gurus, such as Karin, within our midst who are addressing learning needs in the space.

    Show #101: Employee Engagement - Making It Stick

    in Business

    Special Guest: Adrian Phipps, Head of People & Organisation, Arqiva


    Adrian is Head of People & Organisation at Broadcast & Media company Arqiva. Over the last 8 years, he has helped both Arqiva and the Insurer More Th>n (part of the RSA group) to make major improvements in employee engagement. 


    During his time with them, Arqiva has achieved a 1* rating in the Sunday Times Best Companies competition, and RSA was ranked as one of the Top 25 UK companies to work for. Outside of work, he is a proud (if a little tired!) father of a toddler and an 8 month old baby, and loves being out on the water – whether swimming in it or in a sea kayak.
     
    Join us as we talk about how to make engagement “stick” in an organisation.  We all know the theory and it sounds great in principle – but very few organisations make the big shifts in engagement that we hope for. 


    Having been part of two organisations that really have made this change, Adrian shares some useful beliefs that organisations need to hold if engagement is going to improve and also some of the practical things you can do to improve engagement where you work.

    Show #100: Leading as a Host – Six New ‘Roles of Engagement’

    in Business

    Special Guest: Mark McKergow


    Being a host is an ancient metaphor, but one which has now evolved to become both new and timely in the business world. Now, it is no longer enough for a leader to be heroic, they must also know when to become the host too. But what does being a host actually mean in a business context?  'Host: Six new roles of engagement for teams, organisations, communities and movements' author Dr Mark McKergow has investigated how hosts – and leaders –create engagement by stepping forward and back and being responsive to the needs and wishes of their ‘guests’. 
     
    Mark will be talking about how ‘roles’ – as opposed to ‘rules’- of engagement provide a useable and flexible framework for transforming leadership at all levels and settings.  The host metaphor is one we all know at some level, yet can enhance and build to an exquisite level of refinement with reflection and practice. 


    You can read more on our blog here.


    Dr Mark McKergow is the co-author of Host: Six new rules roles of engagement fort teams, organisations, communities and movements (Solutions Books, 2014).  He is a speaker, consultant and facilitator who finds new ways to work in tough and ever-changing environments.  He is co-author of three others books including the best-selling The Solutions Focus (Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2007) which has appeared in 11 languages.

    Show #99 - Making Strategy Social (Social Engagement Sub Group Stream)

    in Business

    Special Guests: Steve O'Neill, John Smythe and Charelle Wigley, members of the Social Engagement Subgroup


    'Making strategy social' – is a work stream within the ’Social’ sub group of Engage for Success. It wants to make explicit the best ways and means to blend social media and face to face dialogue to devise and execute better strategy. Crowdsourcing the experience, insight and knowledge of employees as well as leaders adds value to strategy design and delivery - in what might otherwise default to a traditional 'top down' process.


    The small steering group behind this work stream wants to create a product that will help capture what organisational leaders - 'the C suite’ - needs to think about in making strategy development and implementation more ‘social’ in orientation - both in mindset as well as use of technology.


    Join us as we discuss what this work stream is focusing on and find out how you can get involved.

    The Three Pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy

    in Business

    Input, Solutions, Culture


    Pharmaguy interviews Anne C. Beal, MD, MPH, Chief Patient Officer, Sanofi, and Melva T. Covington, MPH, MBA., PhD, Project Leader, Research and Develooment, Sanofi. They talk about their roles in bringing the patient perspective into Sanofi's work to advance Sanofi's ability to deliver health care solutions that matter most to patients and those who care for them.


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    How do you define "Patient-Centricity?"
    Tell us more about the three pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy. How do you get patients' input? Do you have any patient advocates on your team who are not physicians but who have worked extensively with patients?
    Are we talking only about patient-centricity in the context of research & development? What about corporate and marketing communications?
    What's the most difficult hurdle for pharma to overcome to be truly patient-centric?
    Why did Sanofi create the role of "Chief Patient Officer?" How is it different from "Chief Medical Officer?" What do you do as Sanofi's Chief Patient Officer? Can you relate a case study which demonstrates how you implemented your strategy?
    What other pharmaceutical companies have Chief Patient Officers? Do they all have similar roles? Will all pharma companies follow?
