The Business of Healthcare Podcast with Tara Humphrey

Dec 15, 2020

We all turn to trusted colleagues or friends for advice, but sometimes we want real advice, not just to be told how brilliant we are. When you find those colleagues it’s their advice that will push you to being a better leader and help you go in the right direction.

Today I’m talking about how you don’t have to do everything by yourself, asking for and getting help can make you a stronger leader. Asking for advice can steer you in the right direction of people or of tools and resources. I also share how it’s important to understand what your organisation, business or team requires of you now. The leader you needed to be five years ago will be different to the leader you need to be right here and now. I talk about asking ourselves what is needed for us to be the leader we want to be - now.

“I’m so happy that I made the decision and really reflected on it and slept on it, got out of my own way and just asked for help.” Tara Humphrey
