Every other month, I host a chat combining the #ideachat + #innochat communities with the hashtag #innoidea . This month, I have asked to join us to talk about "The Rise of the Expert Generalist." A post will be forthcoming on the #innochat website! A little advance reading here:
“One thing that separates the great innovators from everyone else is that they seem to know a lot about a wide variety of topics. They are 'expert generalists.' Their wide knowledge base supports their creativity.
As it turns out, there are two personality traits that are key for expert generalists: Openness to Experience and Need for Cognition.”

Staff efficiency, lower overhead, and enhanced patient safety and satisfaction are the desired results.

I specialize in Medical Oncology and Hematology. I believe that music, humor and heart can transform patients’ journeys through the minefield of cancer. I knew that I wanted to connect with my patients through song, and help them tell their stories -- what moves, touches and inspires them.
I started Workup and Lyrical Life because I believe there’s a message in all of this that is much bigger than just songwriting. I’ve seen in my practice and in my own life how important it is to have that connection with someone when you need it most. I want to empower people to reach out to those that need it most, connect with them, create something with them, listen to them. I think when we come together we’re capable of great things, and I hope Workup & Lyrical Life can help bridge those connections.
