Servant Leadership Is Sometimes Painful

Last week to my dismay one of our team members gave me their resignation. It is a good thing.

We have all witnessed her growth in confidence and abilities in the past year. We have relied on her willingness to accept additional roles and responsibilities.

Oct. 8, 2013

As with the Athena group, there is a general tendency to get lost in catching up and checking in with each other. It was difficult to break away from the sharing to begin the program, however, the topics of technology and healthcare captivated the members’ only group as well.  The event was superbly organized with influential presenters and great exchanges of information and thoughts.  I attended two breakout sessions:
