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. Interviewees discuss experiencing failure, being introspective, resiliency, bringing joy back to work, role models and challenging colleagues, the importance of listening, and their success stories.
