The Future of Lab Leadership

September 2020 - Vol. 9 No. 8 - Page #1

As laboratory directors, managers, and leaders, developing your staff members over time to maximize their abilities and grow into independent leaders themselves is key to ongoing quality in the lab. Given your insight provided by vast experience, it is never too early to plant the seeds of leadership success. As we are all standing on the shoulders of giants, it also is important to encourage your staff to learn from the experiences of others.

This is the driving force behind MedicalLab Management’s style of presenting peer-to-peer lab leadership content, free of charge to all clinical laboratory practitioners; from directors to bench techs. While the content of MLM tends to speak to director-level laboratorians, exposing management concepts to those who hope to someday enter the managerial ranks can only be beneficial in the long run. This is why the concept of peer-to-peer information sharing is so critical to the mission of MLM. While we hope our content reaches all laboratory directors, we want to speak to the future lab leaders as well.

The demands facing clinical laboratories today require constant vigilance of process and a finger on the pulse of improvements and breakthroughs in technology and methodology. In order to do this, we suggest tapping into perhaps the best resource you have: Your own future leaders.

It only takes a few moments, and those moments will be well spent.

With best regards,
