Question: Any advice that you would give to emerging leaders in healthcare?

Liz Popwell: Absolutely. I am a big believer in mentoring. I believe that young leaders and experienced leaders all need to be seeking out mentoring and coaching. I had very influential mentors in my early career that challenged me to learn things that I never realized I needed to know. Emerging leaders need to be professionally focusing on their development, focusing on their goals and finding a mentor. That's going to challenge them to think outside the box and help them grow and change. I think they need to learn as much as they can about the ecosystem of healthcare and even the parts that don't align specifically to their roles. I think a lot of the time individuals get so focused on their individual roles. They don't look up and see what's around them.
