New Healthcare Leadership and Innovation Podcast Talent Talks from CercaTalent Hosted by Scott Rivers

The Leadership Needed In Your Commercial Team Post COVID-19

Now, more than ever, we need real leaders. Not people managing out of fear – either their own or using that of others – not those who belittle, and definitely not those who manipulate their teams to get a job done, regardless of cost. What we need are those that can better equip, enable, encourage and empower their teams to be the very best possible versions of themselves they can be and to achieve more than even they ever thought possible, despite the challenges we face.

That is why we begin our podcast series (watch on YouTube now) with a performance coach and Level Five leader who has proven himself able to guide teams to levels of peak performance in the most extreme conditions imaginable. David Rutherford is a top Navy SEAL motivational speaker and best-selling author known for his work on the extremely insightful Froglogic Podcast – a part of his company founded to make a substantial difference in people’s lives through the disciplined concepts and practices of Navy SEAL training principles. Leaning on his 28 years of leadership, much of which was in high risk evolutions, the podcast will explore ways to seize opportunity today that will help create peak performance for tomorrow.

Because of current market conditions brought by COVID-19, many are not able to perform their jobs – at least not in some of the ways we once did. David will deliver to you tangible, actionable ideas on how to lead, work market, sell and thrive during these times, and he will introduce new resources to you and share new ideas about how to meaningfully raise performance thresholds.

This inaugural interview will help you motivate your team up out of adversity by:

  • Teaching them to dig deeper and find more resilience
  • Facing fears and making a monumental shift in thinking about them
  • Refining your efforts in daily, constant improvement
  • Supporting and working better together
  • Getting clear about the mission and actions that will achieve it
  • Wading through the profound tidal wave of (mis)information – how to compile, validate and use it to make logical, disciplined decisions
  • Handling and addressing diversity concerns

David will also help you better focus your recruiting efforts by highlight those things that make a candidate elite:

  1. Training background – you are either trained or untrained; there is no in between;
  2. Performance indicators – and specifically how selflessness is essential; and
  3. Resilience

The host, Scott Rivers, and David will also cover bonus content around embracing a willingness to fail and making it safe for your team to do so. This is what David’s newest training series is all about. How to deal with pain, learn from it, rise up out of the adversity and become a team that is something special.
