If you could walk in anyone’s shoes, who’s would it be?
When asked that question, I bet a good percentage of the population would pick their favorite celebrity, or somebody they have yet to meet.
While there is nothing wrong with wanting to shadow the crazy lives of Jay- Z, Lady Gaga or George Clooney (personally, I’d like to follow the life of Dr. Dre, given our professional kinship), the television show “Undercover Boss” gives this concept a meaningful twist.
In “Undercover Boss,” we see leadership literally step into the shoes of their employees to see what an average day is like at their company – the challenges, the rewards, the areas for improvement.
It’s really an intriguing concept – something that every CEO could do, regardless of their field (but perhaps without the fake mustaches and other disguises).
It’s something that I’ve just begun to do at Henry Ford Hospital.
