83: Redesigning Work: Culture & Mindset

February 3, 2023


There is no shortage of headlines about healthcare’s challenges. As we begin a new year, we’re encouraged by the beacons, the health organizations listening, taking action, and evolving to create workplace environments where people thrive. So, what’s working in healthcare? Across three episodes focused on redesigning work, we’ll hear how change is in the air as new models and mindsets are embraced, revolutionizing hiring, mentorship, career planning, and more.

In this first episode, we talk to David Yeager, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Texas Austin, whose research is focused on the psychology of motivation. David shares the philosophy behind a mentor mindset, which health systems can use to create a culture where nurses are able to thrive, enjoy meaningful work, and feel connected to purpose – because nurses succeed when they have the resources they need.
