To remain viable, health care organizations need leaders who can meet financial targets by effectively leading their teams. Whether you work for a non-profit, for-profit, or government facility, financial goals and targets will influence your leadership priorities. These internal benchmarks, when considered with respect to finite, available resources, create leadership challenges for maintaining fiscal and clinical balance. You may recall a quote from Irene Krause, who started the idea of “No Margin, No Mission.” So, regardless of what your corporate structure might be, all leaders must contribute towards the financial health and profit margin of the organization.
