It depends on how you see it
“If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.“
My professional background is in human medicine. After my studies, I trained to become a doctor at Charité, Berlin, and pursued a classical career trajectory in various managerial positions all the way to my current role of Chief Medical Officer.
In my career as a doctor, I have often advised people through difficult times, listened to them and learned the right questions to ask. These qualities are invaluable in my current executive position. Aside from medical expertise, my work demands extensive knowledge of the complex operation of the health system, including its various forms of funding.
As well as medicine, I am interested in crisis management and decision-making in challenging situations. I studied crisis management and risk analysis part-time at the University of Bonn, graduating with a Masters in Disaster Management and Risk Governance.
I satisfy my thirst for knowledge at the Institute of Organisational Development at Steinbeis University, Berlin, where I am taking a part-time certification course in Healthcare
Leadership and Change Management.
My personal understanding of leadership – and my response to management in today’s VUCA world – is to facilitate my colleagues’ skills and expertise. I am firmly convinced that by boosting intrinsic motivation, we can foster a commitment to perform.
