Why heart and soul should be valued the most

I had the honor of speaking to this year’s graduating class of the Henry Ford Health System Leadership Academy. It was a wonderful opportunity to congratulate this diverse and talented group of individuals, chosen for their current and potential leadership, and to see the many projects that they had initiated during their nine-month training.

Henry Ford Health System Leadership Academy – 2017 Graduates

I was asked to provide words of wisdom to share with them on their leadership journey. Quite honestly, the older I become the less wise I believe I am and the more humble I am about giving others advice.

I did share my thoughts about careers and organizations, despite a world in which ties to an organization for a career or even for long periods of time are a thing of the past. Many of the young tell me they expect to be employed by many organizations in their career. More experienced leaders talk about the need to be in many organizations to become the best leader possible.

The moment.

The incomprehensible can occur in a moment. Something unexpected, let alone unimaginable, happens, reminding all of us that all we ever have is the moment we are in. Reminding all of us how precious that moment we live in truly is. Reminding all of us that we are a heartbeat away from eternity.

There are no words or thoughts that provide comfort or bring an explanation to the inevitable question of “why?” There is no answer. There is only the reality that is faced in dealing with senseless loss, a life ended too soon, a lifetime of remembrances never formed.

Today is National Doctors Day. As I noted in a previous blog post, this celebration was started humbly in 1933 by the wife of a Georgia doctor. Nearly 60 years later President George H. W. Bush signed Proclamation 6253 establishing National Doctors Day to recognize physicians for “their leadership in the prevention and treatment of illness and injury…”

There are many celebrations of other professions, causes and holidays. So why single out doctors?
