TOPIC: Thinking Like a Physician When Addressing Business Issues

A physician and a successful business executive have much more in common than initially meets the eye. The demanding world of medicine means doctors must make educated, compassionate, and decisive decisions quickly and free from paralyzing emotion, especially when a patient is not doing well. A sophisticated leader, when faced with crisis in the business world, should take a page from medical school training, and approach such issues in the same fashion, diagnosing and treating the problem with the same skills as a highly trained medical professional.
