Who is Joe?



Certified Logo Final (PMS)_hires

Joe Mull works with healthcare organizations that want their practice leaders to engage, inspire, and succeed.

Prior to launching his own firm, Joe was head of Learning & Development for Physician Services at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where he managed training for one of the largest physician groups in the United States – more than 9,000 employees at over 500 locations.

Specializing in leadership development, employee engagement, and “soft skills” training, Joe has spent thousands of hours shaping managers into strong leaders with his compelling content and dynamic delivery. With more than 10 years of experience working exclusively in healthcare, he speaks frequently at conferences and retreats, and has delivered training in every imaginable setting including waiting rooms, hallways, PAC-U stalls, and boardrooms. In demand as a speaker and trainer, Joe has attracted audiences from MGMA, ACHE, AAHAM, UPMC, Providence Health & Services, MedExpress, medical societies from across the country, and more.

A published author, Joe’s 2014 book, Cure for the Common Leader: What Physicians & Managers Must Do to Engage & Inspire Healthcare Teams, has been called “one of the most practical healthcare leadership books you’ll ever read.”

In recent years, Joe has become a staunch advocate for Practice Managers, a group of professionals he says “are the key to an engaged healthcare workforce, but too often are invisible when it comes to getting the training and support they need.” Every week Joe receives calls or emails from Practice Managers looking for advice, counsel, or support, returning them all.

Should you choose to partner with Joe, you’ll get the 3 things meeting planners want most: compelling content, dynamic delivery, and an approachable, collaborative, on-the-details speaking professional. His goal as a speaker is also your goal as an event planner: helping people show up differently afterwards, so they can get better results.

Joe holds a Master’s degree from Ohio University, is a certified MBTI practitioner, and is a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association.

“Joe Mull was an exceptional speaker who combined education, humor, and interaction…anyone who attends will improve their leadership qualities. Well worth the time.”

– P. Nunnelley, MD, CMO, Baptist Health Lexington
