About the Session
Servant leaders cultivate a culture of trust as they continually seek the opinions of those they lead. The best servant leaders teach others to lead, providing opportunities for growth and demonstrating by example. These individuals do not always directly lead, but instead give up some of their power and allow others to lead. Knodel believes that exceptional healthcare leaders are willing to sometimes step into the unknown; employing their skills and conviction with the hope of making a transformational difference. During this presentation, Knodel will address the environmental influences, organizational brand and our sometimes unconscious biases that shape us, illustrating how these elements help all leaders grow, perform and better serve their organizations, staff and patients. In her role as senior vice president and chief nurse executive for Kaiser Permanente, Knodel leads 59,000 nurses across eight states who serve nearly 12 million members. The price for this breakfast session is $75.
