Terre Short Speaker Biography

Terre Short is the CEO and Founder of Short Group, LLC. She has been a coach in some capacity her entire career. Through coaching, speaking, and facilitating she has inspired countless staff, senior leaders, physicians and middle managers to connect to their why, and to harness the power of empathy and personal relationships. She excels in assessing complex situations and helping others break them down with clarity into actionable steps.

Terre has more than 30 years of leadership experience, a Masters in Business Administration/Healthcare Management, her Professional Coach Certification (PCC), and is a Certified Patient Experience Professional (CPXP).

Prior to returning to Short Group, Terre served in corporate healthcare roles for ten years (2010 - 2020), as a high-level executive for one of the largest health systems in the U.S. (HCA), and as a regional director for Huron/The Studer Group.

She first established Short Group in 1995 and at that time specialized in leadership development and consulting, including coaching GMs, CEOs and other leaders. Short Group followed her hospitality career that spanned many senior leadership positions within Four Seasons Hotels and later Pebble Beach Company. Since 1995, she has spoken for a wide range of organizations, and audiences large and small. She is highly sought after for leadership development forums and spoke at the 2018 Annual Becker's Hospital Review Conference.

Terre published The Words We Choose: Your Guide to How and Why Words Matter in July 2020. The book covers how to choose words that connect to values and intention. It spans the words we choose for ourselves (the voice in your head), with loved ones, at large in the world, at work, through technology (not spoken), and with a higher power. 

Terre coaches executives at Blackrock, Chevron, SalesForce, Intuit, Fidelity, Phillip Morris, Google, Marriot, Masco, Darden…to name a few.
