Leaders for Tomorrow

Recently, I was asked what I thought would be the skills required to be a successful health care leader in the future.  My take was that these same skills can be applied today as well as tomorrow and they are as follows:

  • Embrace change
  • Be a visionary
  • Use common sense
  • Surround yourself with the best
  • Be flexible
  • Be willing to adapt easily
  • Be an effective communicator; most importantly, LISTEN
  • Use your early adopter physicians to your advantage as you work to build a value- based care delivery model
  • Encourage a learning environment by making sure that your staff understand what it is that you are doing and why you are doing it; you can't teach or communicate this enough
  • Be tech savvy
  • Lastly, and most importantly, act with integrity.
