We recognize a tradition of leadership at
Johns Hopkins from great physicians like Sir William Osler, who said, “We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from it.” The principles of Serving Leadership are strong reflections of the link between our tradition and future vision. Its core tenets of shared leadership, asset-based thinking and leveraging of strengths are integral to the success of departmental strategic planning.”

Today we had our bi-monthly Lead CRNA meeting. We had an ambitious agenda and our history is that we often do not complete it. Building on our last Serving Leader session, we used the serving leader format with a timer and note taker. Not only did we complete the entire agenda, there was no free for all over-talking and everybody felt that their opinions counted. The quality of the work was the best ever. I want to thank John personally for selecting me to role play the meeting at our last session. It had amazing results.”
