Have you ever worked for a very technical professional who was promoted to lead a team of their peers, because he or she knew how to do a job but not how to lead? (Or maybe that's you!) Kevin E. O'Connor, CSP focuses on working with these "peer leaders" as a facilitator, medical educator, and author.
Kevin knows that clinicians are focused upon providing the premier patient experience. However, very few know how to effectively manage transition, conflict, and collaboration among their teams and through executive leadership. Kevin coaches, facilitates, and presents to these professionals more than 175 times per year around the world to corporations, individuals, associations and non-profits.
Kevin has three master's degrees, is the author of eight books, and has earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation. Less than 550 persons in the world hold this honor for speaking and teaching excellence.
His latest book—Fearless Facilitation: The Ultimate Field Guide to Engaging (and Involving!) Your Audience—teaches professionals how to retain influence and draw forth the expertise from their teams, and is available in bookstores, from Amazon, and on Apple's iBookstore.
Kevin teaches at Loyola University of Chicago and at Columbia College, the largest performing arts school in the country. Kevin is a faculty member of the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and is a consultant for the Accreditation Council for Pharmaceutical Education.
