The Gila Regional Story, Part I
In 2006, as a consultant and trainer, I had been doing systems optimization and conscious leadership growth work in various industries for 16 years. We had had a lot of success, as had our clients. Out of the blue, I got a call from Brian Cunningham, the director of a rehabilitation and wellness center in Silver City, New Mexico.
The center was part of Gila Regional Medical Center (GMRC), a 50-bed regional hospital, also in Silver City.
Brian said he had read an article I had written about the power of systems and conscious leadership, and wondered if I might be able to assist the hospital with some thorny issues that had for years adversely affected profitability and patient satisfaction. I responded that, if leadership was willing to grow and change, I could be of assistance.
