Liza Ekole, PharmD., Ph.D., Celebrated for Dedication to the Healthcare Industry

Dr. Ekole lends years of experience to her work with Collaborative Relational Intelligence® (CRQ)

    MCKINNEY, TX, September 22, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Liza Ekole, PharmD., PhD has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

The saying – "You cannot find everything in one package," – holds until you encounter Dr. Elizabeth Ekole (Dr. Liza). Ekole is an accomplished healthcare professional, expert in physician engagement, an authority on interpersonal and interprofessional leadership, motivational speaker, philanthropist, wife, and mum. Ekole has defied the norms to become a global icon on matters of leadership and effective collaboration in healthcare. She is a true testament to what dedication and commitment can do and an ultimate raw revelation of what can be considered an embodied philosophical axiom of necessity being the mother of invention.

Born and raised in Cameroon, Ekole exhibited her brilliance at an early age. Her father (Late. Hon. Dr. P.A. Fomum) was not hesitant to notice that the spirit in her daughter would likely lead her to become a doctor in the health fraternity. True to her father's intuition and the unwavering support from her husband (Alphonse Ekole, MD), Ekole doubled her efforts and ultimately graduated with two doctorates: a doctorate in Pharmacy from Ohio Northern College of Pharmacy and a doctorate in Philosophy in Health Services with focus on Leadership from Walden University. The knowledge and values acquired in these programs laid a solid foundation upon which Ekole built her career.

Ekole's career journey is characterized by immense growth -- from working at McDonald's to being a Clinical Pharmacist to owning a retail pharmacy to being a well celebrated top performing Director of a hospital pharmacy, to being a Senior Clinical Consultant for Physician Engagement for a Fortune 100 company, to being a frequent speaker at the Harvard Global Health Catalyst Summit.

Ekole noticed a collaborative disconnect between professionals at all levels. She realized that the real key to changing a mammoth system in this relational age lies in relating to others from an interpersonal and interprofessional level. It was this realization that led her to coin Double Rhodium Rule®, which states, "Know yourself, understand others and inspire them in ways they do not even know they can be inspired without asking 'how.'" This ideology is the basis for Ekole's patented leadership framework, Collaborative Relational Intelligence® (CRQ). Her CRQ framework is well celebrated and used as the approved leadership training for many notable organizations, including leadership training for healthcare professionals and medical residency programs.

These ingenious concepts have refined leadership and clinical service delivery, effectively addressing burnout, poor patient satisfaction surveys, conflicts due to interpersonal and gender differences, and the yearly accumulated healthcare waste of billions of dollars due to poor collaboration. She is the author of a published scholarly research on Relational Intelligence® as a Framework for Interprofessional Collaboration. Her axiom "Diversity and Inclusion in Healthcare Starts with You and Me." – is a raw revelation of her work's contribution to redefining collaboration in healthcare worldwide.

Ekole is currently the CEO of CRQ Consulting Inc. and is on a mission to help curb the projected shortages of physicians in healthcare by enhancing effective collaboration and increasing access to the rural area. Through her unique and comprehensive value-based care program, she trains graduate physicians and international medical graduates (IMGs) without residency so they can practice under a licensed physician's supervision and get paid by providing needed value-based care services.

She is also a certified executive coach, diversity, and inclusion professional, human behavior consultant, trained in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), and an in-demand speaker.

Ekole is a recipient of many awards and recognitions. True to her "Game Changer" title by ONU Magazine, she trailblazes a breakthrough way of communicating and collaborating in healthcare that is simple, practical, inspiring, and guaranteed to be transformational. She closely aligns with several organizations, including the American College of Healthcare Executives, to keep abreast of developments affecting her field.
