Ideas: 10 Ideas for Applying No-Limit Leadership to a Healthcare Executive

Today's Thought is "10 Ideas for Applying No-Limit Leadership to a Healthcare Executive".

  1. Who made the rules in your Industry?  Besides the Government and or Federal or State mandates if you didn't make the rule why are you holding yourself to it?
  2. Who is the most important person in your business?  If you said anything else besides the "Patient" you need to reevaluate your mindset and your business plan.  This is healthcare people!!
  3. When are we going to start using more "Cutting Edge" technology (And "NO" Windows XP is not cutting edge technology.) and fully using the systems we already have in place?
  4. If you want a better ROI for your Technology dollar put in solutions that help you make things better, faster, and easier for the patients, clinicians, and doctors.
  5. Start utilizing every last function you can out of your current technology, and find ways to integrate those functions into your current workflow.  Either make your current workflows better or scrap the workflow and start over.  Don't keep doing something just because "This is the way we've always done it here".
  6. Stand up and be LEADER!! If that is your position then make Leadership and ACTION word, not just a title.
  7. Get out in the hospital and talk to the "Real" people.  The one's cleaning up the rooms, the ones making the food in the cafeteria, the ones changing out the light bulds, the real people in your organization that keep it running day in and day out.  Those are the people who have a feel for the pulse of your organization.  Not the other "O" sitting next to you at the boardroom table.
  8. If you want to make a "Change" at your hospital it first has to start with your "Vision".  Change starts at the top and starts with "You".  So own it, be very clear about your vision, and then put plans in place to make it happen. Last but not least once your plan is made "Take Action" to make it happen.  Healthcare as a business isn't for the weak...
  9. Once and for all realize this is a Hospital or a Healthcare Organization.  It is a 24/7/365 no breaks, no weekends off, no holidays off kind of thing. Never forget these are someones Mom, Dad, Husband, Mother, Son, or Daughter who is here trying to get better.  There are no days off when it comes to helping people. 
  10. As a Healthcare Executive you should have two words constantly on your mind. "Help" and "Grow".  If you are a Healthcare Executive and you are reading this leave me a comment on what these two words mean to you.
