CEO Blog: Leadership 101 at Scripps

Scripps CEO, Chris Van Gorder, with members of his leadership academy. Van Gorder covered its fundamentals in the CEO blog.

Scripps Leadership Academy class of 2017.

Early on in my tenure as president and CEO of Scripps Health, I realized that putting the organization on a sound cultural footing was just as important for our future as sorting out the financial challenges that were facing us at the time.


One way I did that was by creating the Scripps Leadership Academy in 2001, a year long training program for a small group of high-level employees that exposes them to the deepest layers of Scripps.


In the years since, we've created two more leadership training programs for employees at other levels of the organization -- Employee 100 and Front-Line Leader Academy.


I recently discussed the philosophy behind these programs and the benefits they've created for Scripps in an interview with Becker's Hospital Review.
