41: Advice for Emerging Leaders

Meet the Guests:
This episode features three leaders previously interviewed on The Gary Bisbee Show. Karen DeSalvo, M.D., is the Chief Health Officer at Google. Lieutenant General Scott Dingle is the Surgeon General of the U.S. Army and Commanding General of the U.S. Army Medical Command. Hubert Joly is a Senior Lecturer at the Harvard Business School and the former Chairman and CEO of Best Buy.

Key Insights:

Leadership is a journey not a destination. Leadership is the accumulation of our abilities, experience, relationships, and reflections.

  • Pace Yourself. Be passionate, but don’t race towards an end goal without taking the time to reflect, build relationships, and hone your skills. This will enrich your career and life. (1:45)
  • Pursue Your Passion. LTG Dingle encourages young health professionals to live their dream. Be passionate, persistent, and precise. However, make sure to stay balanced and take care of yourself. (3:11)
  • Write Your Own Eulogy. Hubert recommends that young leaders write their future retirement speech or eulogy to ensure that their career and life are a reflection what they value the most. (5:08)
