S3 E10: Casting a Compelling Vision for Transformation with Dr. Christopher O’Connor
Transforming a healthcare system is no small task, but it’s a worthwhile journey.
Dr. Christopher O’Connor, President of Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, saw this firsthand when he began leading in a new environment. Affecting change requires alignment on mission and vision, releasing control for the greater good, and – above all – time.
His past success helped him cast a compelling vision for his new team. With the support of his staff, he shifted the culture, adjusted hospital governance, and implemented a leadership academy. Gradually, he saw his small community hospital transform into a leader in cardiovascular care.
