New Issue of ‘In the Lead’ Magazine Focuses on Healthcare Leadership

The Stillman School of Business and its Business Leadership Center have released the Fall 2022 issue of On your mind magazine, which focuses on leadership perspectives in healthcare, with content curated by industry leaders who share lessons learned from real-world experiences.

Contributors to this issue include a CEO and board member of several biopharmaceutical companies, the chief talent officer of a global pharmaceutical company, and an assistant vice president of a leading hospital in New York. They are joined by accomplished faculty from the School of Business as well as a recent graduate who is excelling in his accounting career. Readers will benefit from insights into leadership arising from current and emerging topics such as establishing successors, labor shortages and, of course, the hallmark of Seton Hall’s Buccino Leadership Institute – the development of leadership.

This issue also features findings and analysis from the second Futures of Leadership Survey. The magazine’s editor and finance instructor Ruchin Kansal, MBA and professor and dean emeritus Karen Boroff, Ph.D. served as the research team for the survey. They indicated that

“Findings from the 2022 survey are consistent with the inaugural 2021 survey when it comes to the physical traits, values, skills and challenges facing a leader. Respondents, who were between the ages of 18 and 25 years, continue to see leadership as an important topic and agree that remote work has had an impact on leadership development.They are looking for ethical and adaptive leaders who can inspire and lead organizations through change as the business environment becomes even more unstable and uncertain.

Kansal added, “The survey has already contributed to the national discussion about the Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair (CROWN) Act and the impact of remote work on leadership development.
