Medical Excellence Moment - Call Out…Shout Out…

As healthcare professionals we find ourselves in leadership roles in various capacities - leading our patients in direct patient care, team leader, director, administrator for clinic or facility, training representative for product or resource, etc.

Leadership is evolving from a 'front of the room, do as I say' perspective to a more cohesive, engaged style where all team members are equally valued and the leader 1st serves and empowers the team.

In this medical excellence moment, Dr. Simone shares an often underestimated tool that is an easy to implement skill that will transform the work environment, increases morale and ultimately improve the employee experience.

Dr. Simone Interviews Wealth Trainer Dr. Janee - Homeless to Helping Others Achieve Wealth

This episode is for all of us who plan to make wise financial choices in the coming year!  I recently traveled to Dublin, GA where I shared my experience and expertise with a group of fellow healthcare professionals in Dublin, GA.

I shared on ways to help manage stress, have a more healthy work-life balance and ultimately avoid provider burnout.

Financial stability definitely plays a huge role in the quality of life we have and thus is a factor in our work-life balance.  Most people think healthcare professionals are 'rolling' in the money!  That's not the case for everyone, and even still, making smart financial decisions is important for us, our family and our legacy.

In episode 32, of More Than Medicine, Dr. Simone Interviews wealth and prosperity trainer, Dr. Janee Mobley.  She shares her personal story of financial loss, poverty, being unemployed and how she bounced back by implementing some key mindset strategies and actions.

This excerpt will leave you thinking about how you  can change your financial situation, for the better!

Disregarded to Doctorate - Dr. Simone Interviews Dr, Hardy

I started to cry as I was listening to the final edit of this week's More Than Medicine podcast.  As healthcare professionals our days are filled with worst-case scenarios and our success as providers is based on our knowledge of disease, morbidity, and death.  I wanted to share some sunshine with you to help you get ready for what lies ahead!

Today, before you walk into your office, before you see your first patient, or put out your first office 'fire', listen to Dr. Krist'le Hardy's story.  It is a story of inspiration and determination - success against the odds.

Sometimes we need a little inspiration to help us overcome all the struggle and negativity in the world, in our community and ultimately be in a better place, emotionally, to serve our patients.

Healthcare Leaders - collecting resumes can improve productivity- Dr. Simone Josey



Being a leader in healthcare is not easy, especially when you are not always able to hire new people when times get rough and productivity declines.  Also, most healthcare leaders feel an onus of responsibility to their team members and would rather see them improve in their work,k rather than see them have to leave or get fired.

In today's episode, Dr. Simone shares a unique and effective way to inspire and lead your team to be more engaged and productive - using RESUMES!  Yes, you read that properly.  She shares with you some of the points from one of her signature presentations - Deja Vu to Deja Do!
