The financial implications of an executive vacancy are extremely high. The loss of a chief executive officer typically costs about $1.5 million—and to make matters worse, competitors often use the turnover time to try to acquire more market share, according to a recent article published in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
In spite of the challenges it presents, a leadership void doesn’t have to be a liability. Rather, it is an ideal opportunity to leverage a skilled interim leader who will take the organization to the next level. Innovative healthcare executives are finding that their organizations can experience positive growth—and even gain market share—through the strategic use of high-performing interim leaders. http://www.besmith.com/
