How to Win Over the Hearts & Minds of Your People

Interview with Dr. Cheryl Wilkie

Dr. Wilkie is the Chief Operating Officer at Farnum. She has led the premier substance abuse treatment programs at Farnum and Farnum North since 2008. She has been recognized by multiple community organizations, state offices and legislative committees for excellence in business management and healthcare advocacy. Her ability to understand the human experience is evident in her leadership and talent for empowering everyone to recognize their innate potential.

When I think of a model for leading change in an organization, I think of Cheryl. In the time that I’ve known Cheryl, I’ve watched her create major change in the culture, engagement and leadership of her organization. Through her commitment to her own journey in understanding the principles behind human potential, she has been able to win over the hearts and minds of her most resistant employees and empower her team to step into new roles and new capabilities. And doing it all while serving their clients with passion and care. The culture they have all created is rare and having a huge impact in their clients lives. If you listen to Cheryl, she’ll tell you, all she did was invite them to be who they already are, and she can’t take credit for that.
