Roger is not only responsible for the care of the organization’s staff and residents — in this era of constant change and technology breakthroughs, he must keep PVM moving forward and ahead of the curve. How does he do it? By creating a culture of innovation. Roger urges leaders not to get comfortable with the status quo, and instead, imagine what can be. In the video above, Roger and I discuss innovation, collaboration, and keeping up with technology while staying true to core values.
