LENS ON LEADING

Notes from Antony

Telling a New Story Together

My colleague Marian is a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-the-job-done person. A nurse leader, she’s very well qualified, experienced, and with shining common sense. She’s been astonishingly valuable in these last few weeks since COVID-19 turned the world inside out and...

Rapping at Glastonbury

I’ve always wanted to go to the Glastonbury Festival. It’s a major music event in England that began in 1970 with 1,500 fans and has grown to over 200,000 attending annually. Think Woodstock and you’ll have an idea—a big field in the English countryside with a wide...

Ava Gets a Drum Pad

Somebody said once that Ringo Starr wasn’t the best drummer in the world, and he wasn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles! I’m not sure about that. My musical knowledge isn’t that strong, I’m afraid. All I know is, if someone ever asked me what drummers I’d ever...

A View from Across the Street

If you haven’t seen the musical “Hamilton,” chances are you know someone who has. What a phenomenon. It just keeps playing and playing—and with good reason. We finally had our turn to see it. Ellie, our performer, had been going on and on about it and was in her...

A Born Leader

A Born Leader? I think and read about leadership a lot, not only because my job puts me in a position with responsibility to lead people and resources but also because I’m genuinely interested in the questions that swirl around the topic. At Aspire Health Alliance, we...

Little House on the Beach

“Quack, quack.” If you live anywhere near Boston, those two words immediately stir up local imagery. Even if you’re a tourist on a duck boat on the Charles River, you’ll learn soon enough to go “Quack, quack” while you’re on the boat. Then there’s the finish line of...

Out of the Darkness

Here we are in March, that time of year when the holidays are behind us and we hunker down, surviving winter and longing for spring. By now many of us have lists somewhere about what we want to do to make this year count in our lives—move our careers forward, manage...
