Day in and day out, people are focused on their daily routine. They take care of what they need to do and sometimes don't look further than their current role. No matter whom we are or what our career, we all need leaders and mentors both privately and professionally in our lives. Our parents, our friends, our supervisors, our peers; these are just a few of the groups of people that represent leaders and mentors.
So often as administrators, we focus on the bigger picture items of our typical day: meetings, staffing, financials, marketing, building/maintenance, QI, etc. These are important and essential components. But sometimes it's the little things, the simple things, that can be so powerful.
