Lead the Difference
Co-create Strategy. Elevate Development. Cultivate Engagement.

what is lead the difference?

LEAD the difference exists to cultivate physician leadership that will lead the difference in healthcare.
We do this in three parts: through Strategy, Development, and Engagement



Align decision-making at
the board and executive level
through the contribution
of your physicians and providers at your practice.

Due to increasing demand for executives with clinical knowledge, hospitals/health systems see physicians as valuable leadership resources” —B.E. Smith Executive Brief



Intentional strategy culminates to develop physician leaders, build individual leadership capacity and lead healthcare as an industry of operations in medicine.

There is an opportunity through physician engagement — whether with employed or independent physicians — to improve patient access, customer service, quality and costs.” —Stephen Moore, CMO St. Luke’s Houston



Assess the commitment of your physicians.
Be confident that your most valued partners to the organization have a voice to support their commitment.

[Self-managed] organizations set up structures and practices in which people have high autonomy in their domain, and are accountable for coordinating with others.” —Frederic Laloux

you’re facing challenges
Physician leadership is one of the top trends facing healthcare executives. We can’t address leadership by physicians without first addressing the leadership of those physicians. Retention is dictated by support and development put into play with an intentional strategy and commitment to support.
