The Leaders’ Library, launched in 2019, serves as a closed, asynchronous, pop-up, virtual community discussion of mainstream books which have direct relevance to healthcare clinicians, educators, and leaders. This professional development series is led by Dr. Dina Wallin and features a rotating group of internationally renowned facilitators discussing books with participants on the real-time messaging platform Slack.
Your colleague and friend plops down next to you at a meeting. She’s extra excited because she’s going to give an important presentation to hospital administration about her new quality improvement project, and beams a bright smile at you. She has a huge chunk of spinach between her teeth. What do you do? You could shout, “Hey, loser, get that spinach outta your teeth!” in front of the whole group… or you could encourage her to go ahead and give the presentation, telling her she’s going to do a great job… or you could avoid eye contact altogether… or you could just TELL her discreetly, empowering her to do the best job she can.
