Leadership has been described as the art of taking people to a place that, on their own, they’d not choose to go. On behalf of NEJM Catalyst, Mary Jane Kornacki, MS, Founding Partner of Amicus, Inc., talks with some of the leading figures in health care today about their experiences from the front lines of leadership. Amy Compton-Phillips, Gary Kaplan, Howard Green, Jim Reinertsen, Joseph Pina, Michael Shabot, and Nick Restrepo discuss experiencing failure, being introspective, role models and challenging colleagues, and their success stories.
