Bold Healthcare From The Outside In Podcast

BOLD Leadership in Healthcare

Featuring Chris Mahai

“If you don’t have BOLD leaders in charge of your transformation, and we’ve done research on this, the likelihood of you accomplishing the things you wanted to accomplish drops dramatically…You need someone who can imagine the change and that can actually make it happen. That’s what BOLD leaders do.”

In this episode Sammi Guseyn-Zade, Consultant with Aveus, talks with Chris Mahai. Chris founded and led Aveus for over 20 years. Her work has taken her around the world, giving her a unique perspective on how leaders drive material and positive outcomes in today’s global marketplace.

Memorable quotes from this episode:

“BOLD leaders think and act beyond the organization that exists today…they are frustrated by the status quo…Equally important to having a vision forward, they have the willingness to put their time and resources behind advancing the organization forward.”

Chris Mahai

“These are people who believe there is more available to the organization they are in than they are experiencing today. They have the belief and are able to convey it to others to get them to believe to.”
