Louisiana Chapter of Healthcare Executives
Letter from LACHE President Fall 2017
I hope your Summer has been filled with family and the opportunity to
renew your spirit. I’ve used the quote by Henry Ford:
Coming together is a beginning, staying together
is progress, and working together is success. Your Louisiana Chapter is making progress
and has had a successful first half of 2017. We had record
attendance at the LHA Summer Conference ACHE program.
Dr. Jonathan Borroughs lecture on Medical Staff Alignment provided the
opportunity for many of our member CEO’s to bring their Medical Staff
Leadership. Alignment, Accountability and Evidence Based interventions
were key themes of his lecture. Growth of membership is a major focus of
ACHE and your Louisiana Chapter. Dr. Bourroughs session provided an
opportunity for us to highlight the professional education and development we
have to offer our Medical Staff partners. We are half way through the
LaCHE fiscal year. Many of our Regional Board Directors have stepped
forward to lead and facilitate regional membership recruitment sessions.
Kudos to Region 3 Director Dr. Tiffany Love and Region 4 Director Davis Guy,
FACHE for hosting successful local recruitment meetings. We welcome
Fernando Rivera, FACHE Director/CEO, Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care
System to the LaCHE Board of Directors as the Region 1 Board Director. We
are looking to host membership recruitment sessions in Regions 1 – Greater New
Orleans and Region 2 – Greater Baton Rouge/North Shore before the end of
2017. If you are interested in assisting with this effort, please do not
hesitate to contact me or one of the LaCHE Board of Director members.
At the ACHE National Leadership Conference in Chicago
earlier this month, the Louisiana Chapter received the Region 4 Diversity &
Inclusion Award. Our focus on Regional recruitment sessions were but one
of the highlights in the nomination submitted by Louisiana Regent Michele
Sutton, FACHE. Our Fall Education Session will be on November 10th
in Baton Rouge at the LHA Conference Center. Our Annual meeting will be
in Baton Rouge on November 30th at the Louisiana Culinary Institute https://lci.edu/. Tim Mohon, Chair of the
Community Impact committee has done a phenomenal job of planning this year’s
social event for the La Chapter ACHE Annual Meeting. Diane Yeates, FACHE
and the Education Committee are working to identify top talent to present at
the ACHE session for the LHA Winter Conference, January 30-31,2017.
As you can see, we are well on our way to a successful
2017. It will take ALL of us working together to achieve the goals set
forth in the Multi Year Strategic Plan. I look forward to working with
each of you to insure a successful year.
Coletta C. Barrett RN, FACHE

Healthcare Leadership: Supporting Women Executives
Healthcare Leadership: Supporting Women Executives
Women’s Equality Day was celebrated August 26, 2017. This
day began to commemorate the adoption of the 19th Amendment of the
United States constitution which prohibited government from denying citizens
the right to vote based on sex. It has since developed into a day to unite to
celebrate and assure the rights and privileges of all citizens.
Pay equity and discrimination remains at a 20% discrepancy
with women making 80 cents for every dollar a man makes (Institute for Women’s
Policy Research, 2017). It is predicted Hispanic women will not receive equal
pay until the year 2248, more than 20 years after African American women in
Within healthcare specifically, it is reported that women account
for 78% of the healthcare and social assistance workforce (Warner, 2014). Women
are making it to middle management with female managers at 73% (Chase, 2012). And
that’s where most of them will end their career. The executive suite has
sustained at approximately 70% Caucasian male for decades and the gains in
diversifying this group has been minimal. The goal is not to hinder men who
have earned a promotion, but to ensure women are receiving a fair chance at the
same earned promotional opportunity.
Women often are not recognized for their roles as subject
matter experts or their career accomplishments. A recent research study by the
British Medical Journal by Filardo, da Graca, Sass, Pollock, Smith &
Martinez observed only 37% of prestigious research journal articles are written
by women. Dr. Julie Silver’s research on women physicians receiving awards from
medical societies has demonstrated 40 years of women not receiving awards from
medical societies out of the 48 years reviewed (Silver, 2017). That is what is
referred to as the “inexorable zero”! This term is used to describe situations
in which there is an absence of women or minorities in the area under analysis.
We should never tolerate having women represented at a rate of zero.
Yes, women continue to represent roughly 50.8% of the U.S.
population (U.S. Census Bureau, 2016). What will make the difference? Men
supporting women. #HeForShe is one example of a campaign in which men are
showing their support for gender equality.
How can men make the difference in an exceptional woman’s
career? Don’t just be a mentor, be a sponsor. Ensure she makes it to the
diversity pipeline by recommending her for career development programs and
career opportunities. Have awareness of gender bias and promote change. Let the
change start with you.

Unique Behaviors That Earn Your Employees’ Respect
Great entrepreneurs and well-known leaders tend to possess some “rather unusual behaviors not commonly seen in the corporate world,” according to Marcel Schwantes, a speaker, leadership coach, and the principal and founder of Leadership From the Core. In a recent article for Inc., Schwantes said brilliant leaders do the following four things:
Tap front-line employees for new ideas. Success happens when leaders go down to the production floor to “engage with workers, ask questions and actively listen to truly understand current issues.”
Stay curious. Saying great leaders are naturally curious may sounds cliché, but the notion is backed by research. For instance, a Harvard Business Review report found people with a higher "curiosity quotient" are more inquisitive and generate more original ideas, which leads to higher levels of knowledge acquisition over time.
Display vulnerability. “There's immense power in being openly vulnerable,” says Schwantes. Vulnerability allows leaders to connect with and engage his or her employees. Being relatable helps build relationships, which is what many businesses are built on.
Have empathy. “The practice of empathy works in a business sense only if the end result is removing barriers and helping your employees succeed,” says Schwantes. “It's the feeling of safety and freedom employees get that releases them to do great work.”
Schwantes believes these four uncommon behaviors command great respect and unprecedented employee loyalty, and lead to clear, competitive advantage.

3 Keys to a Great Pep Talk
The ability to speak in a manner that is both energizing and persuasive is important for any leader, yet most executives receive little to no formal training in motivational speaking, according to a recent Harvard Business Review study. Authors of the research found most skillful speakers use language that is:
1. Clear. Great speakers use “uncertainty-reducing language.” For instance, rather than being vague, these speakers provide precise information on how to accomplish a task, including simple instructions, straightforward definitions of tasks and clear-cut details on how performance will be evaluated.
2. Empathetic. “Empathetic language” demonstrates that the speaker is considerate of the audience members as actual human beings. Praise, encouragement, gratitude and acknowledgment of a task’s difficulty all fall into this category.
3. Inspirational. People who give great pep talks often use “meaning-making language,” meaning they explain why a task is important. Typically, they do so by telling inspirational stories about times when people who worked hard succeeded or when their efforts positively affected customers or the community.
—Adapted from “The Science of Pep Talks,” by Daniel McGinn, Harvard Business Review, July–August 2017.

Below are some upcoming Advisory Board you and/or your teams may find of interest!
Join the ACHE Official Group on LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a social networking tool to help members exchange information, build contacts and share ideas. Join the ACHE Official Group on LinkedIn today to make new business contacts with other ACHE members and enhance your current relationships with a growing online network of leaders in the healthcare field.
To join the ACHE Official Group on LinkedIn, you must have a profile. To create a profile, visit LinkedIn.com. Once you have completed your profile, you are ready to join your colleagues around the country.
Click here to see a tutorial.
Whether you are job hunting, gathering leads, or networking in your industry, having a professional, eye-catching profile is an excellent idea to make sure that you can be found by the right people at the right time.
First, it is not about you. Write your summary in the first person (I accomplished ...). With each statement that you write, consider who you are hoping will read it and what they are taking away from it. A recruiter, hiring manager, or potential customer wants to be able to imagine how you can help them.
Filling out a profile is not difficult, but here are some important best practices you should follow to make sure your profile is as powerful as possible.
Start with a professional photo. If you do not have a professional headshot, add that to your to-do-list, and go with the cleanest, most professional looking snapshot you have - and upgrade as soon as possible. And smile - remember that photo is your first impression with a professional employer.
Make your headline stand out. By default, LinkedIn populates your headline with your job title and current company, but you don't have to leave it that way. Consider listing your specialty and speaking directly to your audience. Try to keep your headline to about ten words.
Fill out the summary field with five - six of your biggest achievements. Use bullets to make this easy to read. You can also add media files, including videos. If you are a speaker or presenter, an introduction video could be a great idea.
Add images or documents to your experience. You can add media files to your experience section. It is a great way to create a visual portfolio along with your standard resume information.
Fill out as much of the profile as possible. That includes skills, volunteer associations, education, etc. This is the place to add the interesting stuff that does not fit on your resume, but paints you as a well rounded individual. If your volunteer experiences directly pertain to your job search, put it in as work history.
Keep your work history relevant. You do not need to list every job you ever had. Instead, list the jobs that are relevant to your current career goals.
Add links to relevant sites. If you have a work-related blog or online portfolio , make use of the three URLs you are allowed on your profile and link to it.
Ask for recommendations. Endorsements are great, but recommendations are the currency of the realm on LinkedIn. Reach out to past colleagues, managers, and associates and ask that they write you a recommendation.
Use status updates to share industry-relevant content. This can help show recruiters that you are focused and in-the-know in your industry.
Follow these tips and you can ensure that you have a killer LinkedIn profile that will stand out to recruiters, hiring managers, and potential customers.
