By far my favorite section of the reading thus far...although I told my CFO it was the Finance section!  This served as a great refresher for some tools that I can utilize, but also gave me great pride in knowing that I  practice my leadership in a manner that adopts some of the most positive aspects of leading and provided reinforcement for me on my ability to influence and motivate~...

LEAN and Six-Sigma are great tools...but they are not the ONLY tools.  I have sadly been a part of organizations that cannot think beyond process to the person.  Please don't mistake me...I have been a part of significant improvements that have these tools to thank...but they are not a "one size fits all" approach to quality.

Management by Values

This was my most favorite section! This is why I signed up for this career, being able to influence and lead a group of people towards a common goal - something that we all believe in.  Hospital systems by design are complex entities that are further complicated by people.  I had the opportunity to attend a dynamic ACHE training back in December which focused on creating a workforce that...
