I've been anticipating this episode for many months! My two guests are: Dr. Michael O'Dell and Dr. Ed Hill, two premier physicians from the North Mississippi medical community.
Dr. Mike O'Dell is Director of the Family Medicine Residency Center in Tupelo, MS. Mike has a background in academic circles, having taught and led at several major universities, including the University of Kansas, University of Texas, and University of Alabama. Now, he is not only a family physician, but also leads the preparation program for physician residents. Dr. O'Dell is very active in community affairs, including Rotary Club and his church.
Dr. Ed Hill is a man who has achieved numerous accomplishments during his medical career. He founded the Family Medicine Residency Center and ran it for several years until Dr. O'Dell was recruited to come in and relieve Dr. Hill to address some of the other activities that called him. He has been extremely active in medical profession affairs, including a year's stint as President of the American Medical Association. Now, he is Chairman of the Board for the World Medical Association, a global enterprise involved directly with 84 countries. Perhaps Dr. Hill's greatest pride, though, is in serving proudly as a grandfather!
During this episode, both doctors discussed principles of leadership that can apply to anyone--not just those in the medical profession. Their "take" on leadership is intriguing, probably different from what we read and hear from mainstream authors and speakers. But, as is their natural way of functioning, Drs. O'Dell and Hill make good, common sense in their remarks.
