“The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them.”
Larry McEvoy, MD
In a new-rules world, conventional approaches don’t work well enough. Amid all the talk of disruption, adaptation, agility, sustainability, engagement and innovation, Larry helps leaders and executive teams turn the question, “How, exactly?” into practical answers. Years as an emergency physician taught Larry about performance in the midst of chaos and duress. He now focuses on the system design of leadership, innovation and vigor. The universal challenge is to build work communities of performance, learning and vitality. He helps leaders do that.
Larry taps his dual background as an emergency physician and CEO to work with high-leverage individuals and teams to foster environments defined by high-performance results, rapid and diffuse learning across large numbers of people, and the vitality to keep people committing, innovating and returning.
Sometimes this work is 1:1 coaching for leaders who seek exponential contribution; other times it’s for executive teams who have discovered that there’s more leadership leverage out there that they want to access. And still other times, it’s designing a leadership strategy that helps an organization foster leadership that can drive complex, adaptive and sustainable function.
Larry earned his Doctor of Medicine from Stanford University School of Medicine, completed his residency in emergency medicine at Hennepin County Medical Center and earned a Bachelor of Arts, English Writing from Carroll College.
