The Florence Prescription

The Florence Prescription

From Accountability to Ownership

No one has ever faced a healthcare crisis as dire as the one that confronted Florence Nightingale at the Scutari Barrack Hospital, yet despite the challenges over a 2-year period she defined the nursing profession and created a blueprint for the hospital as we know it today. Now she returns to Memorial Medical Center to help the leadership team foster a stronger culture of ownership. In this heartwarming and thought-provoking story you will learn:

  • Why no one ever checks the oil in a rental car, and proven strategies to foster a culture of ownership
  • Why a culture of ownership requires people who are Emotionally Positive, Self Empowered, and Fully Engaged (the 3 commitments of The Florence Challenge)
  • Why you need a blueprint for the Invisible Architecture™ of your organization and how to use a construction metaphor to create one
  • The 8 essential characteristics of a culture of ownership
  • How to use The Pickle Pledge to help people confront toxic emotional negativity and promote a more positive and productive workplace attitude
  • How the 7 promises of The Self-Empowerment Pledge can help you foster a more empowering culture
