My new Forbes article was inspired by my unexpected feeling of sympathy for former HHS Secretary Tom Price whose resignation was forced by his “failure” to fulfill President Trump’s promise of repealing and replacing Obamacare and by his running up a tab of nearly $1M in a mere nine months for private jets and military flights on trips that fulfilled both official and personal agendas.
What did Tom Price fail to think about? What did his staff fail to offer? It was a problem of ethics, optics and inexperience. New leaders especially need nay-sayers, bearers of institutional memory and access to an organizational memory bank. Take a look at “5 Lessons To Learn From From Tom Price’s Leadership Debacle” on Forbes.
