“No one sits you down and teaches you how to look at data,” said Linda Stevenson, CIO at Fisher-Titus. In a recent interview, she spoke about the need for ongoing training, the “cybersecurity by committee” approach her team is taking, the challenges facing rural healthcare leaders, and how her yoga training has paid off.
One of the most productive things a leader can do is actually to disconnect, according to Chani Cordero, CIO at Brooke Army Medical Center. In this post, she shares what she learned during a recent vacation and why she strongly believes “it’s okay to not be ‘on.’”
Without solid efforts by everyone from top to bottom, the Kansas City Chiefs wouldn’t have won the Super Bowl; the same principles apply to running an IT shop, said Bradd Busick in this piece. “No one role is more important than another, and when they work in concert, incredible things begin to manifest.”
One way to encourage team members to disconnect while on vacation? By asking them to appoint a point person, said Lee Milligan, MD. Not only does it fill the void; it also allows for “professional growth for that individual.”
“You must fully understand the position, and the person occupying the position, to determine if it should be remote,” said Chani Cordero, CIO at Brooke Army Medical Center, reflecting on how Covid has changed her approach.
