One healthcare leader was set on becoming an artist. One considered a career as a flight attendant. Another saw herself as a comedian. Fortunately, they chose healthcare, but it could have been a very different world if these (and other) leaders had followed their original paths.
With the exception of a rare few, most career paths are riddled with bumps, potholes, and detours. Fortunately, they’re also filled with opportunities for those who are paying attention – and are willing to try a different direction. In this post, leaders shed light on the conversations that altered their lives.
As incoming CHIME Board Chair, Scott MacLean hopes to help drive educational and networking opportunities, while also focusing on critical issues such as burnout and talent retention, he said in this interview. “The next wave of leaders needs to be prepared to face these challenges.”
Joining a professional organization isn’t just about networking and continuing education. “It’s also a service to the profession,” says CIO Chani Cordero, who talks about how to find the right fit based on your needs.
As organizations face added pressures to do more with even less, the need arises for leaders who bring a spirit of entrepreneurship, a passion for ingenuity, and a heavy dose of enthusiasm, says Sarah Richardson.
