This partnership means progress for everyone involved with Heartland Dental.

Heartland Dental, LLC, the largest dental support organization in the country, recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary of partnering with Bell Leadership Institute, a recognized leader in executive education and development.

“After meeting Dr. Gerald Bell many years ago and hearing the messages he taught, I knew his ideas and techniques were right in line with what we wanted to accomplish at Heartland Dental,” said Rick Workman, DMD, founder and active executive chairman at Heartland Dental. “Since then, the knowledge our team members have gained through Bell Leadership Institute has helped them advance both personally and professionally. We even had the pleasure of having Dr. Bell present at our Excellence in Leadership event this past December.”

Assisting over 500,000 leaders in over 4,700 organizations in over 30 countries, Bell Leadership Institute offers programs focused on practical, take-home actions for an organization’s specific needs and culture to give team members an insightful, powerful learning experience. The foundational principles of Bell Leadership are introduced in Achievers I, where participants discover six personality patterns, types of motivation, and personality traits of leaders. Using feedback from others in their closest relationships, leaders begin to understand how they are perceived. Graduates of Achievers I can then continue to other seminars on teamwork, communication, time management and many other topics to fuel personal and professional growth.

“The Bell Leadership Institute has been supporting leaders since 1972. More than half a million leaders in families, homes, businesses, organizations and communities have benefited from our principles. Our mission is to help people develop their personal effectiveness and leadership skills to contribute to humankind," said Gerald Bell, PhD, founder and chief executive officer of Bell Leadership Institute. “We are excited that Heartland Dental has continually embraced and implemented our philosophies for so many years.”

“This partnership means progress for everyone involved with Heartland Dental. For our leaders, it means discovering how to truly become all-around leaders in every facet of life. For supported dentists and team members, it means more unity, improved communication and an overall sense of effectiveness to propel them to reach their goals together,” explained Patrick Bauer, president and chief executive officer at Heartland Dental. “We all look forward to continuing this partnership moving forward.”
