Jim Easter–“Not in It to Win It”–Healthcare Architect Codes of Ethics

Speaker Friday, December 2, 2022

The 4-way test asks us to do and say things that are “beneficial to all concerned,” yet many times we have a desire to win the battle or the debate regardless of the benefits to all. Often we are afraid of losing something valuable if we do not stand for our position.

However, is it possible to listen to other viewpoints and live a life of unconditional love without undermining our own personal views and perspectives? How have healthcare architects needed to live by such ethics in order to be successful?

Jim Easter, a member of our rotary club, will share his personal perspective as a healthcare planner on spiritual, legal, and ethical issues of our country and the desire to win at all costs. He presented a similar talk to a class taught by David Weil, JD, at Belmont University. Friday, he will add additional perspectives from the book Not in It to Win It” by Andy Stanley. Jim Easter’s focus will include the ethical aspects of healthcare architecture, truth as we know it, and society today.  Andy Stanley’s book focuses more specifically on how to

  • Make your case with a posture of humility and understanding, rather than being fueled by the fear of losing something.
  • Learn curiously, listen intentionally, and love unconditionally.

Jim has been a Green Hills Rotary member since 1990 and is the Founder of Easter Healthcare Consulting (Ehc).  He represents a healthcare client base of some 2,000 healthcare programs worldwide focusing on campus planning and administration.  He was previously a Senior VP and Partner with W/HFR based in Brentwood.  More specific Ehc background can be found on his website at www.easterhealthcare.com.
