In this podcast episode, we invite Dr. Kim Byas, Program Director of the Master of Science in Health Care Leadership program at the Union Institute & University, to discuss the most significant aspects of conscious leadership: awareness of relationships. A conscious leader will take that awareness and interact with others in meaningful and deliberate ways. Tune in as Dr. Byas reveals how we can make necessary changes to the healthcare system, the ways we need to have conversations around conscious leadership, and the importance of effective communication.

  • To make changes in the healthcare system, individuals need to leave the healthcare system. 
  • Whatever your industry is, conscious leadership requires both consciousness and leadership.
  • Not everyone is ready for conscious leadership. Most people don’t take the time to figure out how they will live as a conscious leader.
