Lesson in Healthcare Leadership

As a kid growing up, I always thought I wanted to be the CEO. Then, as I got older I decided that maybe it would be fine to just be the CIO of the company. Technology was a passion of mine and so it made since that I only dealt with technology and not a lot of the other stuff. At the end of the day, I always wanted to be the boss.

As I’ve gotten older and had a wide variety of bosses, I also learned something about being the boss. It’s really hard. Being a great leader is hard.

Are you a leader who does this for your co-workers? Do you take care of those in your charge?
