Visionary – Strategist – Idea Generator – Consensus Builder – Doer – “Imaginist”
With over 25 years of executive healthcare leadership at one of the largest healthcare systems in the United States, Brian combines concepts from systems and chaos theory, servant leadership, and a generous dose of imagination to inspire and illuminate a path for those who want a better way to build an innovative culture, develop robust strategies, and achieve sustainable high-performance. He has described this approach as Leading with Imagination.
The coolest projects I ever worked on include launching Celebration Health in partnership with Walt Disney World, creating Florida Hospital for Children at the Disney Pavilion, and navigating a medical collaboration with the newly constructed Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
I find my most effective leadership skill asking questions, waiting for the answers, and finding a course of action.
Every day I use imagination to challenge myself with new ideas, concepts, or activities – guitar, biking, cooking, gardening, sailing, watching children’s movies with my kids.
My core values include deepening my relationships with God, family, and others. I live to serve.
Lead With Imagination, 2019
