Leland R. Kaiser, Ph.D., is a dynamic motivational speaker known for his ability to change the way organizations think. A recognized futurist and acknowledged authority on the changing American healthcare system, he is a provocateur and mentor to many hospitals and healthcare organizations in the U.S. Dr. Kaiser holds an appointment as associate professor in the graduate program in health administration at the University of Colorado at Denver. He is an author, prominent educator, and pioneer in the developing field of electronic teaching technologies.
Dr. Kaiser has previous professional experience as a hospital administrator, trustee, R&D director, graduate program director, and professional psychologist. He has master's degrees in Clinical Psychology and Medical Care Administration and a doctoral degree in Social Psychology and Higher Education. Dr. Kaiser is involved in the design of new communities and state-of-the-art hospital architecture. As a speaker, he draws upon his experience with Disney, Florida Hospital, and Celebration City, as well as his work with new communities. He encourages audiences to become designers of health for both their institutions and their communities.
Dr. Leland Kaiser believes that four great waves of social transformation have swept over the planet earth: (1) the hunter and gatherer wave, (2) the agricultural wave, (3) the industrial wave, and (4) the information wave. Each wave transformed humankind and prepared the way for the wave that would follow. A fifth wave of consciousness is building and will envelope humankind. The fifth wave will reconfigure American healthcare. The consciousness wave emphasizes human growth, is holistic, life-cycle oriented, and focuses upon the release of human potential.
An intuitive coach to several leading healthcare CEOs in this country, Dr. Kaiser guides participants in the development of their right-brain skills and the use of intuition in the arenas of governance, medical staff, and management. He differentiates spirituality from religion, teaches core spiritual values useful for managing healthcare organizations, discusses how spiritual values can be translated into organizational norms, and suggests the role of spirituality in solving pressing organizational problems.
Few health professionals have taken time to consciously plan their lives or their careers. They live one day at a time with little thought about their destination or their uniqueness. Dr. Kaiser, by contrast, teaches lifework planning: a systematic effort to reinvent self, professional identity, and organizational functioning, based on valuing, visioning, and action planning.
Dr. Kaiser dismantles obsolete organizational mindsets and challenges participants to expand beyond their present cognitive limits. He has designed his presentations for healthcare professionals anxious to acquire the attitudes and skills necessary to thrive where imagination is creation. Drawing upon years of experience as an innovator, Dr. Kaiser teaches participants essential skills of intuition, creativity, and applied imagination necessary to create high value healthcare products for the future. Ultimately, the healthcare industry is driven only by innovation, since cost and quality no longer differentiate the survivors.
