In her role, Kelly recognized the need to listen to the voice of customers and quickly developed mechanisms to harvest feedback from both the staff and the clients. Based on the feedback received, she supported the organization in developing loyalty and retention programs to maximize the impact and improve upon those result to ultimately increase the reach of the brand in the marketplace. Although it wasn’t clear to her then, she now realizes she was instinctively deploying the fundamentals of Evidence-Based Leadershipâ„  in that organization.  When we think about the word “hospitality” – we know the core is foundational to what we coach in hospitals around the country.  Kelly’s experience in this space brings organizations a “fresh eyes” perspective on how to think differently about the work we do in the healthcare industry.
