10 Days ‘Til Christmas

Today officially marks the 10 day countdown to Christmas! To commemorate the occasion, I’m going to do a Top 10 myself – Top 10 TraitsĀ for Healthcare Leaders!

As we look to start a New Year, healthcare executives should be thinking about how they can make 2012 more successful – for their employees, partners and patients! Each day, I’ll reveal a new trait.

Today’s Trait:
#10 – Clarity of Purpose
A strong leader must truly understand the reason for an organizations existence as well as its goals. Once you know what the organization wants to accomplish, you must be able to balance those priorities with the economic realities.

Sounds so simple. Yet, I’ve met many executives throughout the years who have lost focus on their mission. When it comes to purpose, fuzzy won’t cut it; clarity is critical.
