Culture. Productivity. Strategy. Execution. These ideas will never go out of style for hospital and health system leaders.

The following leadership articles were published by Becker's Hospital Review in the last week.

1. 5 leadership lessons learned from the 2017 Super Bowl
Millions of us witnessed the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history by the New England Patriots over the Atlanta Falcons. Watching closely and imagining how the players from each team must have felt as they returned to the field after half time, it occurred to me that this game could serve as a metaphor for what we are facing in the healthcare industry right now.

7. Study: Women more likely to shy away from executive roles if they've been rejected in the past
Women account for 40 percent of the global workforce, yet they hold only 24 percent of senior management jobs around the world. The figure shrinks even smaller at the top of corporations. Only 5 percent of CEOs of S&P 500 firms are women, according to data cited by the Harvard Business Review.
