The key to excellent leadership is excellent learning!
Why CEOs and CMOs should attend together:
Leadership is at its best when it works together, and CEOs and CMOs are the essential leadership team when it comes to patient quality, safety, and costs. The role of the CMO increasingly revolves around influencing physicians and administrators to create working relationships that benefit both. That requires a good grounding in both clinical and administration skills. To be able to work together and collaborate CMOs need to understand business aspects, just as CEOs need understanding of clinical processes and quality.
