Leadership in Tough Times

by Ophthalmology Business Academy | December 7, 2022

People often think leaders are naturally gifted, charismatic, and gregarious. True leaders do often have those personality traits but, more importantly, they combine them with:

  • An ability to create a vision and organize a plan to move forward.
  • Demonstrated compassion, kindness, and empathy for people at all levels of the organization.
  • Selflessness and a dedication to working through issues and celebrating wins as a team.

In this episode, Guido Piquet, Chief Operations Officer of Mann Eye Institute, Co-host of Ophthalmology Business Podcast & Naren Arulrajah, CEO of Ekwa Marketing and Founder of Ophthalmology Business Academy, discusses and highlights the vital factors a leader should consider in tough times.
