The Art of Medicine Podcast: Dr. Michelle Johnston Explores “The Seismic Shift in Leadership”

Exploring The Seismic Shift in Leadership

Michelle Johnson, Ph.D., guest stars on The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner to explore her new book, The Seismic Shift in Leadership.

To write the book, Michelle profiled a diverse group of executives that included global business leaders and high-level hospital administrators. She observed that the authoritarian “command and control” style no longer served leaders as it had in the past. She discovered that traditional “cultures of fear” failed to lead to innovation and positive results. Instead, collaboration and “intentional connection” have become keys to successful leadership. Michelle reports great stories to illustrate her thesis.

The host, Andrew Nathan Wilner, MD, FACP, FAAN, is a board-certified internist, neurologist and epilepsy specialist. In 1982, he discovered that locum tenens was the perfect solution to achieve work/life balance as a physician and writer. Dr. Wilner has practiced locum tenens in a variety of inpatient, outpatient, academic and community settings. He is a prolific medical journalist and author of several books, including Bullets and Brains. Currently, Dr. Wilner is Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, TN, where he cares for patients, teaches, writes, and lives with his wife and baby boy.
