Publisher's Summary

A 'textbook with passion', Hardwiring Excellence offers a road map and practical how-to guide for creating and sustaining a culture of service and operational excellence. In this book, author Quint Studer, founder of Studer Group, draws on his personal experience as a former hospital executive who led two organizations to the top 1% in patient satisfaction and his experience coaching hundreds of healthcare organizations since.

Studer, a nationally acclaimed educator, coach, and thought leader in healthcare today, is a master storyteller, mixing 'chicken soup style' stories with personal insight, simple tools, and in-depth recommendations on how good organizations can become great ones.

Based on Studer Group's Nine Principles SM, Quint Studer shows how to retain more employees; ensure better customer service; build strong leadership, align organizational values, goals, and results; increase communication; reward and recognize individual success while also requiring accountability; and move operational performance for better financials, market share, and growth.

At the core of the journey, he says, is a sense of purpose, worthwhile work and making a difference. When organizations learn how to harness this passion in their employees, they create a success spiral with ever increasing momentum.

In fact, Richard L. Clarke, FHFMA, President and CEO of Healthcare Financial Management Association says, "Quint Studer's Nine Principles of service and operational excellence provide the missing link between people power and strong financials. It's about courageous leadership."

    "If you buy the audiobook, buy the book too"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This audiobook falls into the same category as many business/skills books - it is audio-only. Therefore, it does not include the charts/graphs/illustrations which are key to absorb the teachings from the book. I enjoyed the performance, but without the visuals a lot was lost.


    Has Hardwiring Excellence: Purpose, Worthwhile Work, Making a Difference turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, it is not a shining example of the issues of its genre. It is the problem which turns me off, it is not specific to this book..

    Story
    "Nice Ideas, but . . ."
    Would you try another book from Quint Studer and/or Kevin Young?

    the book has good ideas and experience. the format is totally inappropriate for an audible book. endless lists and diagrams referenced.


    If you’ve listened to books by Quint Studer before, how does this one compare?

    this was my first experience with quint studer. he seems like a nice man. making his book into an audible one was not his best idea.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin Young?

    no one.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the book has good ideas and specific suggestions for dong things. a lot of common sense that is forgotten or never learned. just doesn't translate well into an audible format


    Any additional comments?

    no

    "Very much Health Care focused"

    This was very much directed at leadership in the Health Care industry but there was good information here about encouraging the heart to the point that i completed listening to it. I guess I should have read the summary or reviews rather than relying on the cover.

    Story
    "Seminal work on customer relations management"

    I run a diverse holding company and at times perform healthcare consulting and have had the pleasure to see many healthcare systems from the inside out. This book laid bare many principles that I had seen but not understood on a conscious level as to what made one hospital a pleasant place to work and another dreadful with employees backbiting, gossiping, and undercutting each other. This truly should be read by every executive, in the healthcare industry or not, as it is the theoretical basis for Customer Relationship Management software, and provides a framework to structure how organizations meet customer's, and employee's needs. Wonderful book.

    Story
    "IF you are a hospital administrator....."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book is for you! I am to chapter 7 and it is still not applicable without much imagination to daily life, feel like the write up was a little deceptive.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hardwiring Excellence: Purpose, Worthwhile Work, Making a Difference?

    make it general, and applicable to every day life, for anyone.
