Pensacola Business Radio: Powerful Women Of the Gulf Coast Series-Guest Quint Studer and Hosted by Kolleen Chesley

2016-12-20-12-55-06

Quint Studer is a businessman, a visionary, an entrepreneur, a mentor to many, and extremely dedicated to his community. He has given his life to designing the building blocks for people and organizations that guide them to achieving and sustaining high performance.

Quint Studer is the founder of Studer Group®, a recipient of the 2010 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Studer Group is an outcomes firm that implements Evidence-Based LeadershipSM systems and practices to help organizations achieve, sustain, and accelerate in service, quality, finance, people, and growth.  For six consecutive years – the last three being in the top 10 – Studer Group has been named one of the Best Small and Medium Workplaces in the United States by Great Place to Work®.  Quint retired from Studer Group in March of 2016 to become a full-time community volunteer to undertake the development, training, and education of the Pensacola Metro Community.

Inc. magazine named Studer its Master of Business, making him the only healthcare leader to have ever won this prestigious award. A consummate teacher and student, Quint was part of the 21st Healthcare Leadership Curriculum Task Force at Harvard Business School. Quint has served as a Board Member at the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA) and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). Quint has also served as a Think Tank Panelist in Washington D.C., as Faculty in Residence at George Washington University, and a Guest Professor at Cornell University. In 2014, Quint was recognized as one of the 40 smartest people in health care by Becker’s Magazine. In September of 2014, Quint was the first ever recipient of Modern Healthcare’s Healthcare Marketing Visionary Award.  He also currently serves on the Board of Sacred Heart Health System.


Studer has written and contributed to a number of books including his newest Healing Physician Burnout, released in September 2015.  His first book, Hardwiring Excellence, a Business Week bestseller, is one of the most read leadership books written for healthcare, with more than 700,000 copies in circulation today. Results that Last, written for non-healthcare, hit the Wall Street Journal’s bestseller list of business books.  Some of his other books include 101 Answers to Questions Leaders Ask, offering practical solutions to healthcare leaders; Straight A Leadership, helping organizations execute well in this changing external environment; and A Culture of High Performance, providing leadership skills to perform at a higher level—continuously.  One of his most popular books, The Great Employee Handbook, provides actions employees can take to better their work and life. Just prior to leaving Studer Group Quint released Maximize Performance for education leaders and teachers, to help them create a culture of educational excellence.

Quint and his wife Rishy moved to Pensacola in 1996 and have not been afraid to invest in its future.  They both have been given many awards through their years here in Pensacola.  Of all the awards, one of their most meaningful is the “Ethics Award” by the Gulf Breeze Rotary and the Pensacola Rotary.  Quint was awarded the Pensacola Area Commitment to Excellence (PACE) Award for Community Leader in 2005/2006 for having a ‘true spirit of service.’

They are co-owners of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos minor league baseball team based here in Pensacola, Florida. The team plays in the Southern League and are the Class Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds Major League Baseball team. On January 19, 2015, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos announced that two-time Masters Champion Bubba Watson joined Quint and Rishy as co-owner of the team.  With this partnership, Bubba and the Studers hope to create even more memorable experiences for Wahoos fans, cultivate a great place for Wahoos employees to work and, with Bubba’s leadership, gain a more national and international awareness for the Blue Wahoos and the City of Pensacola, Florida.

Quint and Rishy founded the Studer Community Institute in February 2014, a non-profit organization that works with small businesses and sponsors research and development of benchmarks to help communities evaluate and understand the health of local economy, government, and quality of life. The Institute produces fact-based analysis of issues that need to be addressed to move forward.  The two main initiatives Studer Community Institute focus on improving early childhood brain development by creating America’s First Early Learning City, and training small businesses and entrepreneurs in universally recognized best practices and leadership development tools to help grow their business. Quint says he has a human responsibility to act and to do so with a sense of urgency. Quint will always connect his actions back to purpose.

Resources – Informative and Trusted

Finding solid resources on line isn’t as easy as it might seem.

There is a LOT of garbage and mis-information floating around on the internet.  A lot. I spend a ton of time reading and researching articles and sources before I ever hit the share button.

If you follow me regularly, you’ll start to see some of my favorite peeps popping up again and again. Does this mean that I agree with everything they post?  No.  What it means, is that I’m pretty close to being on board with most of their content because clearly they are doing their research and hitting the mark with great frequency.

Here is what you need to know before you read anything further.  Generally speaking, I’m a gal who is more interested in RESULTS than I am credentials.  Hard science is not always necessary for me.  I’ve gotten cynical about “research” and “studies” because when I dig, I frequently end up discover that the are financed by the people who most benefit from their results.  Just about every notable agriculture school in the US is funded in some way, shape or form by the agribusinesses who poison us most.  None wants to bite the hand the feeds them.  It’s reality, plain and simple.

Sandra McGuire / AHF and Host of TOP CEO

We are your local insurance and financial planning firm assisting in creating financial & protection plans catered to meet your specific needs.

It has been said that a community’s vitality can be measured in part by the voluntary contributions of it’s leaders. The vision of Leadership Pensacola is a community filled with leaders who are well informed, committed and have the desire to inspire positive change in the Pensacola area.

 

 

 Community Action Program Pensacola

What is Community Action?Fifty years ago, under the leadership of President Lyndon B. Johnson, the U.S. Congress enacted the bill known as the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 in an effort that began under the watch of President John F. Kennedy before his assassination. Johnson took up and expanded these efforts to eradicate poverty, calling the move an unconditional war. In his State of the Union Address in 1964, Johnson declared,

“It will not be a short or easy struggle, no single weapon or strategy will suffice, but we shall not rest until that war is won.”

The variety of initiatives introduced as a result of the act included Head Start, Job Corps, Work-Study programs, Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), and Neighborhood Youth Corps. One of the bill’s more radical components was the introduction of Community Action Agencies, as they prescribed direct involvement from individuals in low-income communities to address the needs of the poor. This action was a departure from how social reform programs were structured in the past.

Like its sister agencies across the state and nation, the Community Action Program Committee, Inc. (CAPC) in Pensacola, Florida, was born out of this concept. Although much has changed in the half century since Johnson’s declaration of the war on poverty, CAPC continues to serve the needs of individuals and families who are struggling and working to achieve self-sufficiency.

We will carry on CAPC’s legacy of service to the community by forging valuable connections to further our mission. Connections with other organizations in Northwest Florida are key to identifying individuals with unmet needs and to directing them to the best possible solutions. Strengthening connections within the agency is important as well. Working together, the CAPC staff can maximize each program’s effectiveness and efficiency in order to help those we serve.

CAPC has produced positive outcomes for many, but the fight must continue. And in the words of President Johnson, “we shall not rest.”

About Us

Experience, Technical Knowledge, Professionalism, & Safety

Over the last seven years our company, Coastal ICF, has completed over 80 ICF wall system projects and performed close to 200 concrete wall pours in the Pensacola area. These projects encompass a wide variety of building types, shapes and sizes, each having unique characteristics that represent the many different uses of ICF forms.

We have experience building basements, safe-rooms, and ICF’s built on a wide variety of foundation types which include slab on grade, monolithic, off-grade slabs or “stem-wall”, and elevated slabs on pilings.

We are able to use innovative engineering techniques to push beyond the limitations of wood frame, steel, and concrete block construction.

We began operations building custom ICF homes from the ground up or “turn-key”, but now we specialize in building ICF walls or the entire envelope or “shell” (foundation, ICF walls, and framing). This approach streamlines the construction process by using a single professional subcontractor to complete the three critical structural phases of construction and provides more effective coordination between owners, architects, engineers, builders, subcontractors, and construction officials thus reducing construction time and minimizing potential problems. Time saved is measured in dollars to the customer.

Our mission is to provide the customer with the highest quality service possible for the best value. Our crews are experienced, professional, punctual, and friendly. We promise to keep your jobsite clean and provide you with quality work. Please do not hire an inexperienced ICF installer! After the concrete is poured and hardened mistakes are very expensive to correct.  You will not save money in the long run. Also, be aware of out of town subs who typically have poor knowledge of our local codes and insurance requirements.

Our president, Douglas Herrick, is a State Certified Building Contractor with over 10 years experience in the construction industry. He holds an Architecture degree from the University of Colorado and sits on the board of directors of the Northwest Florida Home Builders Association. He is also a member in good standing of the ICFA (Insulating Concrete Form Association) and the ACI (American Concrete Institute). Doug developed his philosophy for hard work, professionalism, and attention to detail while serving as a Naval Aviator with the United States Navy. After his tour was up, Doug apprenticed with a commercial builder, and after obtaining his builder’s license, started his own construction business in 1997.

It is our personal commitment to provide a safe work environment. Not only does this ensure the safety of our workers, it ensures continued productivity, and ultimately protects the consumer.

Please contact us as soon as possible to discuss the option of using Coastal ICF to help you build your new home or office out of ICF. I will review your plans and make an assessment of adaptability to our system and the potential construction costs. I look forward to your call.

I also serve on the Escambia County Healthy Start Coalition Board and am a proud Cordova Rotarian and United Way of Escambia County volunteer.

Sandra McGuire- sandramcguire@ahfplanners.com

After working in the benefits industry for many years, I transitioned to a career as an insurance and financial professional

believing I can make a difference in people’s lives. As a single woman who raised a child alone, I can relate to the financial

challenges we all face and desires for a secure financial future for our families.

Now as an independent agent licensed in Florida, Alabama and Georgia, I am happy to work for my clients and make

recommendations that are truly in their best interests. I joined AHF because I believe my client’s needs are my top priority

and at AHF I have the resources to find the right solution for them.

These days when I’m not working I stay active and you can find me training for a triathlon, water-skiing, on a stand-up paddle

board with my Australian Cattle Dog, on a boat, at the beach and enjoying time with my Mom, daughter, and two

granddaughters.

I am an Ambassador for the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce, a member of TriGulfCoast Triathletes, member of the

Pensacola Ski Club, and an associate member of Pensacola Association of Realtors.

Power of E3 © 2015. All Rights Reserved

Annalee Leonard, Founder & President of Mainstay Financial Group had a dream….that dream was to have an annual day of education, enlightenment & empowerment for women in the 55+ age group. In addition, the event would generate donations  to help women that may not be able to afford their own health care. That dream became a reality when Mainstay Financial partnered with Sacred Heart Senior Services to present the first Power of E3 day in March 2014. The successful event was followed by the second E3 day in 2015.  E3 2014 generated a modest donation and E3 2015 resulted in a $5000 donation to Sacred Heart Hospital Foundation!

E3 2016 Annual Day of Education, Enlightenment and Empowerment for  women 55 and over will be even bigger & better!

This women only event with WEAR-TV Anchor Sue Straughn as emcee will feature speakers Kathleen Logan, Annalee Leonard, Suzanne Bush, MD and Laticia “Action” Jackson. Each speaker will focus on topics particular to women 55 years and over.  See the Speaker tab for further information about the speakers.

All net proceeds of  E3 2016 will be  donated to the Sacred Heart Hospital Foundation to benefit women in need of healthcare.
