Leveraging Your Strength as a Diverse Leader.
More and more health care organizations understand the importance of engaging different perspectives and fostering a diverse company culture that can positively impact an inclusive environment but also mirrors the community they serve. I found during stressful and challenging times whether faced with a tight budget or a decrease in clinical volume, my ability to engage members from my team to think differently, to add a helping hand, or to provide a calming effect is one of my assets. When I have used that strength, it has helped and made a positive impact. I have kept those situations in mind when hiring new staff as I have always looked at the subject knowledge of a new team player, but also their experience and cultural intelligence.
