Jean Ann Larson, FACHE, LFHIMSS, FIISE, Chief Leadership Development Officer, Office of Leadership Development, University of Alabama Birmingham Health System
Jean Ann Larson is the Chief Leadership Development Officer at UAB Medicine. From her experiences working in several organizations and in a variety of roles, she firmly believes that better leadership leads to better outcomes. One of her most frequent (and sometimes annoying) quotes is, “It’s all about leadership.” That said, she is eager to work with leaders to build better cultures where people want to contribute their best efforts. She has lived in several states and couple of countries and has worked as a senior executive in large health systems. She is also the founder of her own boutique leadership and organizational development consultancy. She’s written a couple of books on process improvement and organizational change and she loves exploring different cultures and languages. She’s served on several not-for-profit boards over the years, but she is most energized by her current role on the Board of HUB Worldwide providing healthcare supplies and education to Colombia allowing her to practice her Spanish and engage in her love for the people and cultures of Latin America.
