The Story Behind "Punching Nun"

When I was with Ascension Health, the nations largest not-for-profit healthcare system, I met some amazing people. I’m a businessperson and a serial entrepreneur so this was not typical (or even comfortable) but it was extremely enlightening. Beyond developing a deep understanding of women’s health, the operational challenges of the hospital environment and the nuances of affiliated physician practices I found something else.

I discovered that I developed a real affinity and camaraderie with the few remaining nuns involved in senior management. They were humble, focused, patient-centered and mission driven, making them invaluable servant-leaders. They were bold in terms of doing the right thing and identifying creative ways to manage costs and improve service.

As I re-launched my consulting practice I could think of nothing more appropriate than honoring those women and yet incorporating my own sense of humor. When I approached my business partners with the concept they were a bit wary but acknowledged that it was memorable and would raise interest and questions.

Admit it, you were wondering…
