Cerner Retools Presentations

Health-care information technology company Cerner seeks to connect with current and prospective clients, other associates, and partners by sharing its passion—the “why”—with them.

Teaching Senior Leaders the Dynamics of Derailment

Derailment is a phenomenon all too common in organizations. Highly successful middle managers are identified as having potential to move up and eventually take on senior-level positions.
