Happy Memorial Day weekend.  For those of you who do not know, or have forgotten, Memorial Day honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration 

Memorial Day BlogDay, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.  

Please take a few minutes during this weekend to remember and pay respects for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation.   

It is a Saturday morning and all I can say is, Wow, what a week. 

We are adding resources to meet client needs and preparing to thrive in the post volume-based reimbursement/consolidated health system world. I am so glad we have retained our boutique structure.   

Value-based reimbursement is really going to throw some  of the bigger companies and health systems around the country a real curve ball with lower reimbursement and inpatient admissions. 

We all see it coming.  At JohnGSelf + Partners, we are getting ready at a high rate of speed!  We believe that our corporate structure will enable us to be financially flexible to support our clients in providing the executive search, executive coaching, outplacement and interim executives.

It has been raining off and on all week.  We had some big storms roaming the area yesterday but today, we think sunshine and smiles are in the forecast.

I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do.  Books are a great source of ideas and insight. And, some books turn a bright light on a part of our way of life we may not want to see.

So I decided  to share with you some books I have really enjoyed reading, and which have provided me great enthusiastic fuel for thinking about career management, leadership and, doing the right thing when the government would just as soon you look the other way.
