Healthcare Executive Leadership

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

As healthcare organisations seek to enhance safety and quality in a changing environment, organisational learning practices can help to improve existing skills and knowledge and provide opportunities to discover better ways of working together. Leadership at executive, middle management, and local levels is needed to create a sense of shared purpose. Healthcare executive leadership has gone global. As a result, a growing number of opportunities are becoming available for individuals whose career planning efforts have prepared them for the extraordinary challenges and the long-term rewards that an international assignment offers. However, the expectations are high when it comes to making Healthcare executive leadership placements into a foreign market, and a prospective executive must be fully prepared to meet those challenges head-on.

“Well done is better than well said!” is a quote from the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady (and Ben Franklin) and it summarizes the mindset of global investors and global operators as they recruit individuals to lead foreign or multinational business entities. In other words, a successful track record delivering superior financial and operational results will help your achieve your international leadership goals far better than merely words and potential. This is why personal global career planning pays off in the long-run.

Establishing yourself as the winning executive for a global Healthcare executive leadership opportunity requires strong foundational skills, a successful track-record, solid relationships, keen industry insights, and much more. Keep pushing yourself forward in your professional growth and remember, “Well done is better than well said.”

Can an attack of dizziness be an asthma attack?

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

No, you can feel very dizzy whilst having an asthma attack obviously due to the restricted oxygen supply tothe brain, however unless there is a severe wheeze, accompanied by extreme discomfort and or a severe persistant struggling cough, then it is not an asthma attack. i personally suffered with childhood asthma and so i know the signs and then i used to worry about asthma as an adult, however i have now developed panic attacks which one of the main symptoms is dizziness and these were brought on through worrying about asthma! so take a break and think whether or not you could be having a mild panic attack . they are not the same thing!!!!

With asthma you would notice a hard time moving air out of your lungs. In some cases some wheezing and or coughing. Prolonged you can become hypoxic and therefor become dizzy. If on the other hand you are just getting dizzy with no breathing stress its most likely something very different. If you are breathing fast and deeply feeling like you cant get a full breath, maybe your heart pounding then get dizzy you are probobly suffering an anxiety attack and the light headedness is probobly from breating too much. Either way if you have a reaccuring problem you need to see a medical professional to rule out anything serious. or to ease your mind finding it is something very minor.
