Whether you seek to strengthen the skills of seasoned executives or help e

Dr. Valerie L. Myers works with you to elevate performance in all types of healthcare organizations. 

Valerie's vast expertise in healthcare leadership development is derived from a decade of teaching highly rated graduate courses and conducting research at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health.  Valerie's work contributed to the #1 national ranking of its Health Management & Policy graduate program. She designs and delivers transformative learning experiences in graduate, Continuing Medical Education, Healthcare Executive programs and for consulting clients.

 

In addition to Valerie's in-depth expertise in hospital administration, she works with  physician group practices, community providers, public health departments, allied health professionals, professional associations,  insurers, and health institutes.  To meet your needs, she provides assessments, executive education series, one-on-one executive coaching, strategic guidance, and motivational keynote addresses.

 

Working with Dr. Myers, you will gain insights about:

 

  • Strategy: Identify macro factors that are driving change in your market. Use data to identify and seize appropriate opportunities; align clinical services to meet patient population needs; identify and exploit strengths relative to market competitors.

  • Leadership: Refine executive team members' decision-making, critical thinking and self-awareness about contagious behaviors that influence performance. Prepare high-potential talent to successfully transition to senior leadership roles with key skills and a systems perspective.

  • Systems Thinking:  Learn frameworks to analyze and manage relevant interests  across levels (e.g., board, C-Suite, management and staff), functional areas (e.g., human resources, finance etc.), and constituencies (e.g., patient population, business community, region.) Learn fundamentals of healthcare leadership.

  • Relationships & Human Factors that drive performance: Cultivate behaviors that influence quality and teamwork; Inspire professional and staff engagement; Transform routines to create a learning, inclusive, and adaptive culture that advances the caring mission.

 

 

For Valerie, healthcare consulting isn't merely academic- it's personal!  

My passion to cultivate high caliber leaders comes from my research and my parents'' encounters with the healthcare system. I've experienced firsthand how ethical and curious senior leaders can positively, indirectly influence patient outcomes -- and what happens when they don't. Those experiences inspired me to pivot from producing research to producing exemplary leaders!

I created Strategic Curiosity® as an elegant solution to improve leadership, learning, and high reliability.

The insights that Valerie Myers shared with myself and our leadership team and the outcome of her research  deepens our ability to be curious.
