In medicine we are obsessed with lockstep medicine….
- We idolize leadership but promote management.
- We marginalize vision while rewarding process.
- We worship list makers.
- We’re trained as responders not initiators.
- We propagate a culture of permission and seek to breed a generation precisely like the last.
- We believe that thought leadership and the transmission of ideas happens on an 17th century communication platform.
Wes Fisher has it right this week on Kevin MD when he asks, ‘What kind of doctor are we breeding?’
And what kind of leaders are we creating?
