A weekly newsletter from Paul Conroy, CEO, IHM
Once in a while, a series of events catch your eye in a way that seems to link them all together – like the film Limitless – a mysterious clarity appears, like a golden thread.
On Thursday I drank tea with leaders who take more than their share of the flack, and ensure all the praise and spotlight goes to those for whom they provide the protection to produce the incredible. I see in their excitement, that they have not been spoon-fed, but shown how to go to the cupboard to help themselves, and have shown others too. I see it in Blackpool bravery and hints of hope in Gosport.
And reading the words of our Royal Charter this week, touching pages my predecessors inked, I saw it writ large. That in 1908 as war loomed large, managers running hospitals around our country seized on an opportunity to come together and create the climate where the culture of courage confounds unthinking conformity.
I am humbled to walk in their wake.
