The emails cover topics like company culture, design thinking, leadership strategies, creating better functioning teams, enhancing patient experience, etc. They are designed to give you insight into working smarter and being more connected to why you do what you do. We also feature guest posts once a week from thought leaders around the world. People who enjoy the daily are most often senior leaders in business, healthcare execs, entrepreneurs, and academics.
