Quint Studer Profile

Quint Studer spent ten years working with special needs children before entering the healthcare industry in 1984 as a Community Relations Representative. From then until he founded Studer Group he served as Department Director, Vice President, and Senior Vice President at a number of organizations and as president of Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, Florida.

Each of these experiences built a platform for creating tools, techniques and systems aimed at improving organizational performance and—most importantly—patient care. In 2000, after numerous requests by organizations for assistance, Studer Group was formed.

A recipient of the 2010 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, Studer Group implements evidence-based leadership systems that help clients attain and sustain outstanding results in more than 700 hospitals and organizations across the US. Together, they serve a “national learning lab” in which best practices are harvested, tested, refined, and shared with all health care organizations through peer-reviewed journal articles, Studer Group publications, and products designed to accelerate change.

Quint has written five (5) books, two of which are bestsellers, and has a sixth one in progress. His first book, BusinessWeek bestseller Hardwiring Excellence is one of the top selling leadership books ever written for healthcare. More than 350,000 copies have been sold. His second book, 101 Answers to Questions Leaders Ask, offers practical, prescriptive solutions to some of the many questions he′s received from health care leaders around the country. Results that Last—written to teach non-healthcare leaders how to apply Studer Group tactics and strategies to their organizations—hit the Wall Street Journal′s bestseller list of business books. Straight A Leadership teaches senior leaders how to create organizations that can execute swiftly and well in response to a rapidly shifting external environment. Most recently, he coauthored The HCAHPS Handbook: Hardwire Your Hospital for Pay-For-Performance Success. His new book, The Great Employee Handbook (2012), is aimed at employees at all levels.

Quint remains in the field creating tools and techniques designed to make organizations better.

    Results That Last: Hardwiring Behaviors That Will Take Your Company to the Top

    Praise For Results That Last:

    “Quint Studer is a superb communicator with a deep belief in the power of relationships. His informal tone, sense of humor, and real-world stories bring his business principles to life. Results That Last has a vital, optimistic quality that will keep readers re-reading long after other leadership books have been relegated to a dark corner of the shelf.”
    —Nido Qubein, author of How to Get Anything You Want; President, High Point University; Chairman, Great Harvest Bread Company; and founder, National Speakers Association Foundation

    Results That Last is long overdue and fills a big gap in effective business management. There are legions of books that show us the way to achieve successful results in business, but very few that teach us how to institutionalize success. In reality, achieving success is the easy part. The real challenge is to achieve results that last. Quint Studer not only proves it is possible to hardwire a culture for lasting results, but lays out a simple, logical, and effective way to do so. Anyone who wants to make success a habit needs to read this book.”
    —Bob MacDonald, former CEO, Allianz Life of North America and author of Beat the System: 11 Secrets to Building an Entrepreneurial Culture in a Bureaucratic World

    “I have always been fascinated by how the various parts of an organization work together to achieve strategic objectives. In Results That Last, Quint Studer explores the complex subject of performance improvement in a fresh, readable, and easy-to-grasp way. By standardizing certain business practices and leader behaviors, any company in any field can create an environment that allows it to achieve and sustain long-term results.”
    —David F. Giannetto, coauthor of The Performance Power Grid: The Proven Method to Create and Sustain Superior Organizational Performance
