Presentation: Why be Social (Media) – Kaiser Permanente Colorado – “Destination Leadership”

I realized when I uploaded this presentation to Slideshare that it didn’t have a title, so I made one up just now. Everything doesn’t have to have a title, does it?

I was invited to be a part of a great learning program put on by the HR/Talent team at Kaiser Permanente (@KPColorado) yesterday, for all the managers in the 6500-person, 550,000 member-health-improving, every-day-innovating organization.

I was joined by one of my mentors in this honor as well, Diane Gage-Lofgren (@dianelofgren), who you can see on stage telling a personal story about her journey to take risks while taking great care of people, in addition to a roster of leaders across the spectrum of industry and the generations.

As it shows in my slide deck below, you’re more than worth it for all that you do, Kaiser Permanente Colorado!

I’ve included the video snippet that features Regina Holliday (@ReginaHolliday) talking about what she’d like from health care in social media. There’s a little bit of science in there about social networks, which I’ll expand on in another post. 

The last slide’s call to action brought me pages of SMS’s that I am just looking through now – we learn a lot in integrated care, every day, as I suspected 🙂

Enjoy, comments welcome.
