What Surprises Eric: The absolutely indispensable nature of leadership in any human endeavor. Real power comes from the quality of the person rather than from the title or position he or she holds. Truly effective leadership, therefore, derives largely from being the kind of person deserving of the followership of others.

What Inspires Eric: Partnering with executives and physicians as they become the kind of leaders others will follow into the disruptive New World of Healthcare.
