He's a graduate of both Roosevelt University in the Sloan School of management at Mit. And he's the author of a new book his first book learning to lead the journey to leading yourself leading others and leading an organization Ron Welcome. Okay thanks for being here. Well thank you for having me. I see you have the introduction that my parents sent over. Yeah well you know. I edited a little but I left most moms moms words right in there so this is a great opportunity for me and for everyone. WHO's listening because I've also had your successor at Aetna Mark Bertolini on the show episode one hundred sixty four? I know that you told me that you knew that. We both read his book. And so for all of you. Who are listening? If you love this conversation you're going to go back. Go back and listen episode one sixty four with Mark Berlin because he's got a fabulous story and like his book Ron. Your book is very much such a book about your path as well as your lessons. But I'd like to have you step back a little further. How what's the journey? That takes you to leading one of the largest companies in America. Well I think The way we think about the journey is really summed up in the title of the book. It's really about the steps than the island through learning the lead myself from a background where I could never have imagined the success that I've had and starting out on the south side of Chicago washing cars on the date of winter. If you told me I would be the chairman and CEO of a company that was fortunate. Seventy seven on the list. I would have said you. You are absolutely out of your mind. That is not impact. Not Possible I. I don't even know what it is so I know it's washing cars in the this summer is bad enough washing them in the winter on. That's a whole `nother level right. It is but I think part of it is recognizing that some kids want to know what they WANNA do from the time at five years old they want to be a doctor and that's what they ended up being but for most of us. We really don't know what we'd want to do. And sometimes knowing what you don't want to do turns out to be extremely important and also the ability to as I describe in the book reframe your perspective and to not buy into the stereotypes. What people tell you if you're woman you can't be good in math or if you're an introvert you can't be good in marketing and sales sales and really open up your mind to what you want to vote on how you get there? And that's really what books about in the First Section is really about. How do you really lead yourself from where you start to where you WANNA go? Yeah and that's that's an excellent point in and that is I think the frame of the book you got the Subtitle Edison leading yourself leading others and leading organization. You sort of take all three of those pieces on along the way. And so what I've done. Ron is pulled some things you know. It's an interesting interesting chance to have a conversation with someone who's not only written a book but also has done done the work right and been a leader at the highest possible levels and so I've tried to do for for the benefit of all of the rest of you until you get a copy of the book is to pull out some really. I thought interesting in practical ideas is from it and in one of the things I was going to talk about later but since you already mentioned it why don't we start there. You talk about reframing problems talk about what you mean and by that and and help us understand your approach to think your approach to doing that is exceptionally interesting. In reframing the basic notion is that we we start out with a set of beliefs about what is in fact possible a set of beliefs about what is the best way to solve a problem and we often don't back up and say suppose are framing is wrong if we wanted to. For example. This is an example. I use a lot in in later in the book. Look is let's say you want to learn A particular discipline. which is you have no background? You have no experience. It's you know nothing about but I can tell you. Most people can learn anything. They sat out took to learn. You don't get good something The day aboard and so we framing is really opening up your mind often looking around at role models in other people who have these capabilities understanding fanning. How they got to where they got to and really starting down that path and and when you see barriers figuring out how you come around them over them knief them so that you can get to where you WanNa get you and later? Maybe we'll talk about some specific examples when you leading chains teams reform our and refrain. Why they're thinking about problems you talked about and it's been a few a couple of weeks we had A? We had a fish start before eight hundred conversations. There's been a couple of weeks since I read the book But you talk about an example of where you felt like that the organization needed to do something pretty significant and the team wanted to take months is to study it and you wanted to have it implemented in like three months or something like that talk about that and I may have the timelines off a little. But I've got it right directionally. Talk a little bit about how you help. The team reformed that is a very practical example. He talked about that little bit. Sure it's in the book. I talk about something. We call. Executive Management Information Awesome arrived at AETNA. We had endless data but we had not converted the data into inflammation. It really helped us run the business real time in a meeting away away. So I gave an assignment to the leadership team finance actuarial different functions and said. Here's the model. Here's what what I want. And here's what I want. The data to be reported in how will change our management processes to look at information real time seven days after we close. It's our boasts as opposed to looking at it twenty eight days after we close. Our books of the team went away very rigorous meeting planning process and when they came back to the good news you told us you wanted this done by September while the good news is we can have the project plan completed by Septum. Now this was April and I said no off too much L. D. You understand by September I want a the real working just won't be perfect first generation but it'll be light years ahead of where we are now. Everybody said that's impossible possible. It cannot be death so that was a moment of truth. The Prior Management Company would have basically started shouting told people. If you can't do this I wanna done. I'M GONNA fire you get somebody who can that would have made you'll someone feel better but not resulted imprimis imprimis and no one would ever come back and tell you anything that you didn't WanNa hear again so what I did was say. Okay I believe we. Can you believe we. We can't less together examine in work through the issues that you see as barriers. The first one came up was it would take us longer than that to negotiate the contracts because even we did all the work we have to go outside to have vendor software be the presentation presentation layer. Yep I said okay. How many vendors can do it? They were three. I said pick two and start negotiating the contract. Now tell them one of you get it won't but we WANNA go live in September so we're going to negotiate the contract in advance and I said any premium wrong with doing that thoughts note. We think that were layer by layer. We peeled through the issues. The next one was. We don't have enough resource. It's okay what is it we as experts have to do. And what can we use consultants in others to do so I said well that's probably Abou- how twenty percent of the work we really have to do I see it you have to do it. You have to approve the assumptions. That's they said. Well it's about ten percent we actually have to do so within on found consultants and we did at the end of the process. The organization had refrained is viewed. I'm from this is a crazy idea. It cannot be done to actually having an agreed upon glide path but most importantly a way of thinking and reframing how they saw problems as opposed to starting with the macro conclusion and and really dissecting and collaboratively working through the issues. And that's why I wanted you to share the example. So thanks for doing that. Ron Because for all of you listening as you dissect what Ron you just said I think the big key is a challenging each of those beliefs right you. You might call him an assumption. Ron Calls a belief that point is the same every time they said. Here's why why we can't or here's what the barrier is will. Let's examine that and see. What can we do right? And in retrospect for all of us listening it seems it's pretty logical yet oftentimes. That's not what we do is were in the middle of it and that's our job as a leader to help as you said. Peel those things away and I think the last thing you said is critical. which is it's not just that we got a working model and you've got better data faster by September but you started a reframe? How how people you built help you build a skill you start to change culture in that same moment it was extremely important and I think it said example of a another approach which is the notion of an versus? Your and I think I picked this up from Jim Collins and when you tell people I want great customer service and Lower Administrative Expense for that service the first reaction is you can have one John or the other give great customer service. It's GONNA cost more There's no way to do both of them. And one of the things that is extremely the importance of it is only when people really embrace that you have to solve for doing both that you really be again in begin begin to understand. What does it take to produce? Great Service for example one of the ways is simply generate less need for people to call you for the service right demand for the service and so you eliminate a whole host of things doing that. People pick up the open the mail and they say what is this so they got a call. You can find out what it is. So this notion of the anniversary of or is is another way of thinking about reframing Ah Giving people practical tools and ways to solve these problems. You talk about You talk about getting this data that you needed in this example. Sooner so that you could could make better business decisions and you also talk in the book about the idea of of making decisions and having having enough facts and you actually talk about the idea of when do we know that we have enough facts because there are more facts. And there's more data than ever and people often get mobilized by like well. We need this when he this. How how did you or how do you help people think through that? When do we have enough facts in? How do we know will? There are two elements related to improving decision-making one money is is is question of of focusing on the really important facts. The other is to recognize that decision making has to resign. Typically in a person discussion generation of alternatives. Vigorous debate is a great group activity. But the decision making is not about consensus. It's about someone who is empowered to make that decision now. If it was a business decision I would make. If it was a a information technology decision it would be delegated to our chief information officer so when you when you talk about decision making figuring out what are the really important issues that you need to understand in having a decision meeting where both sides or all sides of the argument or decision are presented the pros the cons the implications and then making a decision in also recognizing recognizing that if the organization makes the wrong decision. It will be obvious and you will do something different. One of the other things. It's critical for people equal to understand that you can't make decisions. Where every person has their hand on the break and we've all been in situations where the decisions made you? You're trying to implement in some ice as you know is one more thing we need to take a look. At which is a way of causing the organization just cycle icon cycle. Never make any Address the rule is you can disagree with the decision but you have to commit to execute it just as if you agreed with. Yep that is fundamentally important because what happens when you do find the decision with wrong. Customers won't like it employs whole And you'll change. You'll do something different. The worst place to be is stuck in this endless loop of chasing more in more and more information which has less and less impact on on the outcome of the decision and is create. Well it creates all sorts of things right like by not getting momentum and not moving forward. You're you're causing internal frustration..

I. T. we've graduate with an MBA how did you find your way into the healthcare sector you know I of it in my T. there was a huge focus on entrepreneurial activity and one of the areas I focused on was the operational management of services businesses which was a completely new area because everything that had been done in marketing up to that point was all about products as opposed to services and in one of my entrepreneurial classes we had a gentleman come in a Mitch Kapor Mitch was the founder and creator of lotus one two three which was the original eventually bought by IBM visually bought by IBM and he built lotus one two three after he worked on the original spreadsheet called visit calc and it was interesting to hear his story about how he created a company and ultimately I was highly successful in selling the company and so I became interested in entrepreneurial activity so when I left in my tea I ended up joining some partners I met who were starting a healthcare company in California I knew nothing about healthcare not I knew a lot about the operational management services businesses and this was services business that was bringing the treatment for chemical dependency and substance abuse out of the hospital into a amatory center were people who had good family support and we're beginning to have problems could come in after work and get the care that they need it it was a huge cost savings to the companies and for the families and it may care and treatment much more accessible so that started me down the road of healthcare and ultimately we sold the company and I looked around and I joined Blue Cross of California so from entrepreneurship you now joining a fairly large company what was that transition like because it's obviously very different when it's just you and a handful of people running a start up where there's no entrance way of doing things and a lot of freedom to experiment suddenly you're in a giant entity well I think the experience that that I had actually before I went to graduate school was at a company called control data control data had seventy thousand employees so I had been in a company with seventy thousand I then I started a company with three and I went to Blue Cross it had about five thousand employees so I have to say the size didn't worry me as much as a culture I jokingly and it was half humorous and half not that the places I was interested in working at the bottom of the list was the federal government state government and then Blue Cross I actually had some experience in state government as well and about I met the team they were a really dynamic group of people who had a vision to transform the company and I joined and that's really where I kind of did the apprenticeship of running all aspects of that company and ultimately really odd to develop the complete knowledge of the healthcare system so did you aspire to the C. suite or were you more interested in looking at companies that were either in need of some assistance Orrin Ennis case of giant turnaround what what was the motivation when you left Blue Cross and join that now I think when I was at M. I. T. one of the unique things I think they did was they brought an alumni who wore CEOs and we would have dinners maybe once a month the B. fourteen of us at a time we would sit down with the CEO and hear their story in here their journey and as I heard those stories and heard those journeys somewhere in there the light went on and said you know I think I could do that I could learn to do that couldn't do it today but I could see a path where with the right experience and the right opportunities I could learn to be a CEO so for me that was kind of the beginning of the distant light on the horizon that's it you know I think maybe I could learn coming up we continue our conversation with Ron Williams former chairman.

What did they want to see in new innovations new products new capabilities and what made the difference really really was a theme in the company of back to basics and defining very explicitly what we needed to do and getting the organization engaged so that the commitments i had made for improve service improve responsiveness were being met and then the fact that we then simultaneously ashley developed a strategy that represented a whole new generation of products and services so you get all this feedback from these big customers and you promise.

You have thousands in thousands of employees. How do you make sure everybody is on the same page and that not just culturally but those specific pain points. You mentioned tensions. How does that reach the rank and file employees. Well i think what you have to do. Is you really have to be extremely visible so so i made it a goal to go to the customer service centers to meet with the teams to lay out the strategy and to build a graphic model that define explicitly absolutely what back-to-basics mitt so if you were in claims. It said you're gonna pay claims accurately and timely. We're going to measure you on that. We're going reward you on that but but we're gonna make certain you have the resources to be able to do it and we're gonna listen to you in terms of what are the things the organization has to do to enable you to accomplish that and we did that area by area by area and so while we were under enormous financial strain we did not under invest in making certain that we got back to delivering the basic commitment for service you you mentioned the twelve billion dollars in acquisitions that preceded your <hes> period of time as c._e._o.

"If you think about health care most of the things that impact healthcare actually a happened in the home in the community at work and so we have to think about getting the healthcare system much more involved in those spaces by working with the patient what about costs of various drugs you know when we passed the <hes>. What is it medicare section. D for prescription drug costs there was is a lot of lobbying from the pharmaceutical industry and there is not only is there no cap on costs but there is a prohibition on the government negotiating prices on it on behalf of medicaid medicare which is just outrageous. It makes medicaid costs more that has to trickle down to what private insurance japan for drugs well. I think it does. I think we have to take a look at <hes>. Negotiating with the government is really not negotiate right. Government is not in negotiator. Oh cheater. They are a price setter. Well certain countries are more aggressive. Price-setters then us and their drugs cost much less than ours so i think we have to look at the whole all drug system on a global basis and the one thing i believe is that the u._s. is in fact doing an enormous amount of research for all countries in the u._s. and any it's fair to say i believe that the u._s. Patient population is in fact pain for the research which is benefiting many many countries who don't make the investment in pharmaceutical research that makes no sense though it may not but but but but that's what we're doing now the other thing i would say is that the innovations innovations that pharmaceutical companies create are really spectacular and it is an extremely expensive undertaking..
