An emergency physician, healthcare CEO, and entrepreneur, Larry’s interests at the intersection of business, biology, and health have forged his thinking about the need to evolve leadership exponentially for the epidemic challenges of the 21st century. Larry leverages his extensive track record of real-life strategic and operational results to help executives create and capacitate entire systems, small and large, to optimize performance, adaptation, and vitality. He has wide experience in shaping the complexity of our times into outstanding results, rapid learning, and energized professional cultures.
Larry’s executive experience involved recrafting strategy, operations, and culture as a CEO in a health system turnaround, a tenure which required revitalizing an organization mid-recession, reversing distressed and degraded financial circumstances, optimizing team dynamics in tenuous situations, orchestrating solutions to agenda-laden and longstanding municipal political tensions, and mobilizing entrenched opponents and rivals to collaborate. His career has comprised the renewal of multiple environments of distrust, stress, and dispirited dynamics.
After co-founding PracticingExcellence.com, he founded Epidemic Leadership to focus on the executive work of creating organizations, companies, and cities of exponential capacity and innovative vigor—where performance, learning, and vitality rise in parallel and are abundant, infectious, sustained and sustaining. He is on the faculty of the American Association of Physician Leaders, The Governance Institute, and The Leadership Development Group. His book, Epidemic Leadership: How to Lead Infectiously in a World of Big Problems, released on Amazon in August of 2021.
From 2008 to 2012, Larry served as the CEO of Memorial Health System in Colorado Springs, CO, facilitating a $100 million turnaround, the emergence of a culture of collaboration and commitment, and Memorial’s transformation from an at-risk and unfunded municipal hospital to the threshold of its merger with the University of Colorado Health system. Prior to that he was a senior executive and emergency physician at the Billings Clinic in Billings, MT, from 1995 to 2008.
