Be the Best Part of Their Day with David Schreiner — Values-Driven Leadership to Enhance Communication

Dr. David L. Schreiner is a values-driven leader and a passionate advocate for rural hospitals, having spent most of his life in small towns and working within small communities. His research focuses on improving executive communication.

His new book is Be the Best Part of Their Day: Supercharging Communication with Values-Driven Leadership.

We talk about:
  • The relationship between leadership and communication
  • Closing the gap between wanting to be the best part of their day and getting to make it happen
  • Seeing it as an opportunity versus a burden
  • Intentionality around making oneself accessible
  • Engaging with intent through various mediums
  • George Bernard Shaw: “The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” 
  • Transparency and frequency
  • Be mission-focused and present united leadership
  • Increase team cohesion and buy-in for initiatives 
  • Increasing personal influence
