'Leading the Way' Podcast: Dr. Fab Mancini, Former CEO & President Emeritus, Parker University
In this week’s Leading the Way, we take a look at creating a “wellness culture” with America’s #1 Healthy Living Media Expert, a world-renowned chiropractor, best-selling author, radio host, educator, business leader speaker, and President Emeritus of Parker University, Dr. Fab Mancini. You may have seen Dr. Fab during one of his television guest appearances on Dr. Phil, The Doctors, Fox News, CNN, CBS ABC, NBC, Univision, Telemundo to name a few.
As the youngest president of any U.S. university, Dr. Fab shares his experience of being a young leader, the lessons he learned early on, and how his mentor, the infamous Dr. James W. Parker, modeled the behavior that when you believe in something, don’t let anything stop you from it.
This is an engaging conversation revolving around transformation, hiring for values, and cultivating a healthy employee experience. Dr. Fab inspires us with sound advice, leadership principles, and attainable self-healing tips for a balanced lifestyle that contributes to true happiness.
On purpose – “I can tell you right now that loving your work is a source of happiness. Make sure that you have a purpose that’s bigger than you. Make sure you make life about something bigger than you, and that is the greatest source of happiness.”
On talent acquisition – “Once we’ve filtered them through HR and we know they have the right skillset and they fit the profile that we are looking for, then the questions, the last round of interviews, should be based on their values. Then you can start matching them on a value system, and those are the ones that will last you for a long time.”
On culture - “It’s important to develop a culture, what I call a wellness culture, in which you have a healthy employee, body, mind, and spirit, and the best way to do that is to make sure that you have activities throughout the week, the month, that encourage healthy behaviors.”
On leadership – “The first leadership principle is lead by example. The second one is to always put customers first, and the third is to make sure that your values are the values you want to instill in your company. A servant leader is a leader that truly thinks about others before they think of themselves.”
On success - “You don’t become successful overnight. You become successful by picking yourself up and dealing with all the mistakes you make and all the challenges you face, and realizing that you have a lot more to offer than what your circumstances dictate.”
