Being a successful leader in this complex era of healthcare demands new kinds of intelligence. Market intelligence. Competitive intelligence. And—perhaps most importantly—emotional intelligence. Healthcare organizations that rely only on their medical expertise and traditional models of leadership will fall behind the rest. This conference is designed to ensure your organization won’t be one of them.

What You’ll Gain

  • A one-day, comprehensive look at the emerging healthcare challenges and industry intelligence that leaders like you need to understand now
  • New and unexpected ways of thinking that you can immediately put into practice to conquer these challenges
  • The tools to generate visible results in every aspect of your work from patient satisfaction scores to financial statements

Open to All Healthcare Leaders 

  • Executives
  • Trustees
  • Physician Leaders
  • Directors
  • Managers
  • If you’re a leader responsible for implementing change, providing improved care, and/or leading others…you’re invited!


Only the 2018 MHEI Healthcare Leadership Conference brings the nation’s best thinkers in modern healthcare, visionary leadership, and effective organizational change to you.

Keynote Speaker: Daniel Goleman, PhD
Psychologist and Author
“What Makes a Leader: Emotional Intelligence and the Keys to High Performance”

Psychologist and author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus, Daniel Goleman has transformed the way the world educates children, relates to family and friends, and conducts business.

His 2014 bestseller, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence, argues that leadership that gets results demands a triple focus: on ourselves; on others, for our relationships; and on the outer forces that shape organizations and society.

Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence was called by HBR “a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea.” His follow-up, Working With Emotional Intelligence, outlined the importance of EI in professional settings.

The groundbreaking Primal Leadership: Unleashing the Power of Emotional Intelligence, unveiled scientific evidence proving that a leader’s emotional competencies have an enormous impact on an organization’s bottom line.

Goleman’s 2017 book, Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain and Body, explores how meditation and mindfulness can achieve real, positive, and lasting mental and behavioral change.

His work on the brain and behavioral science was nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize and recognized with the Washburn Award and Lifetime Career Award from the American Psychological Association.
