What hospitals can learn from college football

College football hall of famer coach Lou Holtz offered healthcare leaders tips to strengthen their teams, during the annual meeting of Becker's Hospital Review. To succeed, Holtz said leaders must have a vision for the future, a plan to get there, lead by example, enforce accountability, and make sure the team shares the same core values. Hospital executives, he said, must never forget their directives to help patients and keep the organization solvent or profitable. Finally, he suggested leaders embrace change to fix problems, make good choices, work to the best of their ability, and show others they care. Article
