Meet Dr. David L. Schreiner, an inspiring and values-driven leader who strives every day to live up to his definition of leadership. For him, being a values-driven leader means living in the moment, continually learning, challenging existing practices, producing positive results, innovating to improve the lives of others, and loving unconditionally. His passion for improving himself, his family, his friends, his community, and the world is unparalleled, and he aims to be a missionary for excellent health and vibrant communities by spreading love through generosity and healing.

Dr. Schreiner is a passionate advocate for rural hospitals, having spent most of his life in small towns and working within small communities. His research focuses on improving executive communication.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Dr. Schreiner is an accomplished athlete. He has completed 11 marathons and became an Ironman at Ironman Wisconsin in 2004. His dedication to health and wellness extends beyond his work and is a testament to his commitment to living a well-rounded life.

Dr. Schreiner's leadership and contributions to his community have not gone unnoticed. He was the 2007 Dixon, Illinois Citizen of the Year and received the 2022 Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of St. Francis College of Business. He is a past member of the Board of Governors of The American College of Healthcare Executives and the past American Hospital Association Rural Health Task Force Chairman.

Dr. Schreiner's positive outlook, enthusiasm, and sincerity are evident in everything he does. He is truly passionate about making a difference in the world and improving the lives of others. His dedication to his values and his work is an inspiration to all who know him.

Be the Best Part of Their Day: Supercharging Communication With Values-Driven Leadership

The best companies want to leave a positive imprint on the world. They want a brand that reflects their commitment to their customers, employees, and other stakeholders. To achieve those aims, every industry is looking for that edge in how they communicate.

But the problem, author David Schreiner says, is that companies use terms like “engagement” and “communications” with an amorphous idea of what those terms mean or how to excel at them. In his new best-selling book, Be the Best Part of Their Day: Supercharging Communication with Values-Driven Leadership, Schreiner helps leaders discover the secret to making their communications transparent, honest, compassionate, and inspiring.

Schreiner says communication done well invokes organizational change and reaches the people who matter most. He reminds us of the difference we can make in people’s lives when we choose to approach them with a mindset of appreciation and love. Based on his research and three decades of experience as an industry-leading healthcare system CEO, Schreiner’s insights and strategies in the book guide leaders toward building an organizational culture of caring and high performance.

In Dr. Schreiner’s presentations, the audience learns:
- What values-based leadership entail, and how it can lead to deeper connections and better communications in an organization

- The five key parts to leaders learning how to engage and connect at a personal level.

-  Engaging with intent through various mediums

-  Being mission-focused through united leadership and holding each other accountable

-  Knowing when to use AI to improve our communications and when it’s important to ensure human interaction.

Are you ready to elevate your connections and engage in a more meaningful way with the people who matter the most and be the best part of their day?
