Phillips DiPisa, www.PhillipsDiPisa.com, a retained executive search firm serving healthcare providers and managed care organizations, announced release of its latest article:

High-Maintenance Executives: Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em?

It is available on the firm’s Website .

When it comes to executives, the term “high-maintenance” conjures up synonyms like “disruptive,” “time-consuming,” and “draining.”

Think high-maintenance executives are “no-win” hires that you must avoid at all costs? Think again.

High-maintenance executives may well have just the skill set and experience you need to solve an important problem or move your organization in a particular direction. We’re talking about very specific skill sets, i.e., implementing a new revenue maximization initiative, identifying inefficiencies in your ED, or making quick but equitable cuts in your overhead. And, even in today’s tough economic times, you just may not be able to find that expertise in “less challenging” candidates.

This piece considers the why healthcare organizations should add a high-maintenance executive to the team. It also considers the “when” – when it may be time to ask that executive to move on.

Ralph DiPisa, a principal of the firm, wrote the piece.
