Laying The Foundation: The 5 Ps of Leadership
This episode on the 5 Ps of Leadership was inspired by my time spent as a young medical student with Dr. Marilyn Hughes Gaston. I worked under her as a student summer intern at the NIH when she was the Assistant Surgeon General and Rear Admiral of the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Her career started as a pediatrician taking care of the underserved. She later became a medical expert in the field of sickle cell anemia where her 1986 study of the disease led to a nationwide screening program to test newborns for immediate treatment and her research led to the advancements we have today. She was a mentor and role model who exemplified these 5 Ps of a great leader.
Her PURPOSE was clear
Her PERSONALITY was huge and inviting.
She was always PRESENT
She was always PREPARED
She PERSERVERED when she opened the Sickle Cell Disease Center
