Creating Community Excellence
The speaker at the December 6th Optimist meeting was Shawn Lerch, CEO of Sauk Prairie Healthcare. The topic was Creating Community Excellence. Lerch shared many insights about leadership including "If you want to be a leader, you have to do what you've never done before...Leadership at all levels is expected... the keys to being a leader is to be engaged, enriched and prideful...Treat everyone with dignity...Hold yourself and others accountable...Establish a culture of respect and professionalism...If it ain't broke, make it better!"
