I have come to believe that my role, as a leader, is to nurture the gifts that I recognize, assist where I can and then get the hell out of the way.
Yesterday, our hospital held a Memorial Tribute to honor all of the children that died in 2009. My department plans and oversees this function. Today, I feel so much gratitude for my team and for each member's passion and grace throughout the process.
To commemorate this extraordinary event, I wore Heavenly, by Victoria's Secret. It was perfectly empathetic; light, innocuous, the smell of hope.
