Leaders who inspire

Shur Bilchik, G.

From the article: "Inspirational leadership is becoming a survival skill. But the good news is that the operative word is skill. The ability to inspire people--to capture their hearts, minds, and souls-is not an innate ability possessed by a gifted few: it's a learnable behavior. That's an opinion shared by researchers who have looked into the phenomenon of inspirational leadership, and by healthcare leaders who are living it. No one discounts the traits that form the baseline for effective leadership: vision, energy, authority, strategic direction, and adherence to high standards of business ethics. But current research and the hard-knock realities of contemporary health care demonstrate that there is another level worth reaching for."
