Mike Williams has served as the President and CEO of Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) since its inception in 1996. Based in Plano, Texas, CHC offers practical solutions for community hospitals to help improve effectiveness, efficiency, quality, and financial stability, while preserving and protecting community control of the hospital.
During a recent in-depth interview, Williams’ commitment and passion for CHC and the hospitals it serves was unmistakable and inspirational. As he talked about the mission and values of this remarkable organization, Williams shared his belief: “Success should be measured with the measure of the positive impact that you’ve made on people.” Williams and CHC certainly have made a positive impact on hundreds of hospitals, and thus, on hundreds of thousands of people across America.
Over the next few weeks, this column will feature some of Williams’ fascinating and successful leadership perspectives and wisdom. We invite you to stay tuned.
In the meantime, I encourage you to invest a little quality time closely reexamining how you define personal and organizational leadership success. Not just how you define leadership success in words, but far more important, how you define leadership success via your actions, your decisions, your personal example and the rewards you give and approve.
