Welcome to the latest installment of “Leading Questions: Wisdom from the Corner Office,” where
IBJ sits down with one of central Indiana’s top bosses to talk shop about their industry and the habits that
lead to success.
With more than 20 hospitals and health centers statewide in the Clarian Health system, President and CEO Daniel F. Evans Jr. realizes that he's in danger of losing track of the day-to-day demands of providing health care while he attempts to focus on the big picture. In the video below, Evans details his solution — making daily rounds in Clarian facilities and talking face-to-face with doctors, nurses and patients. That includes bedside visits on Christmas Day.
In the bonus video below, Evans reveals the best advice he's ever received and the benchmarks he uses for rating his own effectiveness. One surprising litmus test: whether anyone feels highly enough of you (or feels comfortable enough with you) to seek your opinion.
