The Cost of Never-ending Fire Drills

Posted by on Feb 1, 2017 in The LFT Blog | Comments Off on The Cost of Never-ending Fire Drills

How much of your time do you spend reacting to “fire drills” at work? Not calling the fire department type, but rather the unanticipated occurrence which you have neither the time nor resources to handle. Fire drills might be figuring out how to cover for someone on your team who called in sick or a surgeon operating on the wrong body part. And everything in between. A surprise budget miss? A harassment complaint? An increase in patient falls on weekend evenings? Not ready for the pending Joint Commission visit? Layer on top of this all that has been happening with healthcare public policy....

Sometimes we just get lucky.

You may think we only post the best comments, or maybe make them up, as we keep all statements anonymous. Don’t worry, these are the real deal. Organizations come to us because they are in a pickle. They need help. Interims were our original service line. They remain the core of what we do. And the comments below reflect our commitment to getting the best talent out there to work for us as interims. They are our employees and our...

Many of you know Dan Moore, who handles business development for us in much of New England and upstate New York. When I arrived at Leaders For Today in June 2014, Dan had only been with the organization for a couple of months.

Change isn’t for everybody. But Dan stuck with it, and I...
