Ask Berwick: Where Do You Turn After Tough Days at Work?

By IHI Open School | Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Dr. Don Berwick, President Emeritus and Senior Fellow at IHI and Former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, answers your questions in our new blog series, “Ask Berwick.” Ask him about career tips, his days as a pediatrician, or his thoughts on leadership – all topics are open for discussion.

We’ve already received dozens of excellent questions and we’re working with Dr. Berwick to film the answers. This week, he answers a question we all can relate to: Where do you turn after tough days at work?

In his answer, Berwick discusses the importance of family – and, more specifically, how children can become your best advisors. Imagine how Berwick must have felt back in 2010 when he delivered a commencement address to his daughter and her classmates at Yale Medical School. The speech, which we think is one of his best, talks about how he was able to join his wife for the birth and witness a miracle. You can read the full speech here on the Pulse website
