the New Agreements

Bottom/Up, Front Line Driven, Systems-Based Transformation in Healthcare

1. Find Your Higher Purpose for Work
2. Grow and Serve Your People

3. Learn to Facilitate the 7 Tools*
4. Practice a Little Every Day

1. Find Your Higher Purpose for Work

We believe that each of us is here in this lifetime for a purpose and even a higher purpose. Discovering your calling is powerful indeed because it gives your work and your life meaning. When you stand in your higher purpose, the universe will send you what you need to achieve it.

2. Grow and Serve Your People

A great leader cares deeply about his/her people. If you can’t care, you can’t lead. Part of caring is the desire for those we lead to experience success and even joy at work. This comes about by serving your people and being committed to their continuous growth.


3. Learn to Facilitate the 7 Tools*

This single Agreement changes everything we have been taught about leadership, management, and transformation, especially in healthcare on the front lines where care is actually delivered. When one masters facilitation of the 7 Tools, one masters systems-based leadership and management and becomes a catalyst for genuine transformation in healthcare.


4. Practice a Little Every Day

Mastery requires practice. Learning to be a great leader and manager in healthcare requires practice, especially in facilitation of the 7 Tools. Practice is best done a little every day. We become what we practice.

The New Agreements for Leaders is a new and proven effective transformational model for rapidly growing leaders and managers, regardless of title or role, who become catalysts for organizational transformation and improvement.

“I did some keynote speaking from 1990-2010, mostly on quality, leadership, and the power of systems/process in business. People received value from these presentations and I was considered ahead of my time in the creation of quality cultures in businesses. However, The New Agreements for Leaders take the concept of being ahead of the coming transformation and leadership paradigm shift to a whole new level.”
