The Stanford Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (J.E.D.I) program is proud to bring you the Healthcare Leadership Podcast.
Leadership has been described as a process of social influence, which maximizes the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal. Transactional, charismatic, transformational, and servant leadership are thought to be the four common styles of leadership. Through informal conversations with healthcare leaders at various levels in their career trajectories, this healthcare leadership podcast seeks to trace the nuances and secrets of effective leadership.
A conversation with Dr. Lloyd B. Minor, Dean of Stanford University School of Medicine
“I’m most effective when it almost seems like I don’t have many ideas because the ideas I have been embraced by and to an extent owned by others. They’re seen as the organization’s ideas and goals and therefore multiple people in the organization are committed to and dedicated to making sure that they’re successful.” – says Dr. Minor
A conversation with Dr. Patricia Jones, National Institute on Aging, National Institute of Health
“I learned over the years to be patient. My strength comes from a quote that I really think reflects my inner being to the core. And that’s a quote from Marian Wright, Edelman, child advocacy attorney, and her quote is that “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.”
A conversation with Dr. Jane deLima Thomas, Harvard Medical School
Vulnerability is a measure of courage and a primary leadership quality. Dr. Jane deLima Thomas describes her journey and struggles and how she overcame them.
A conversation with Dr. Ross McKinney Jr., The Association of American Medical Colleges
“I don’t think it’s useful to have one identity for yourself. I think it’s important to realize we all as human beings have multiple parts of us, and we’re going to try and utilize those different parts of us in different ways, at different stages in our career,” explains Dr. Ross McKinney Jr., MD, Chief Scientific Officer the Association of American Medical Colleges in this episode of our healthcare leadership podcast. When he faced rejections and failures, his strategy was to be very practical and say “Hey, okay, I guess the thing I should do is figure out what I was good at in that, and find some way to carry it forward.” Through his very open disclosures, Ross traces his extraordinary career and his successful leadership strategies.
A conversation with Dr. Kimberly A. Curseen, Emory University School of Medicine
Dr. Kim Curseen is an empowering and inspirational leader in geriatrics and palliative care. Dr. Curseen feels that people, especially women, can be steered down that path that they are asked to do things. As they want to be helpful, they may just step in to fill an organizational need without ever really stopping back and just consider, “Is this the way I really want my career to go?” Sadly, they may wake up many years later filled with regret at their career trajectory and unable to take corrective action. Join us to hear the fireworks in Dr. Curseen’s views in this episode of Stanford Medicine’s #HealthcareLeadershipPodcast.
