How NOT to Be a Medical Director
Dr. Karen Kim, director of Pooler Pediatric Clinic, in Pooler Georgia, wrote the above first letter (click on it for a better read) to her staff and colleagues.
After the backlash, she wrote a 2nd letter, which further inflamed the situation. A few days later a resignation letter said she would be leaving Pooler to devote more time to caring for her 7 children at home.
This is a good case study in how NOT to be a medical director (or any other manager of people).
- Don't bring politics to the workplace
- Don't call the President Elect "Evil Incarnate" in writing
- Don't threaten your staff and colleagues
- Don't insult your staff by calling them names like "lazy" or "slacker."
- Don't act like a victim
- Don't be a total jerk
Now, with the internet it means it will be seen world wide. Sorry Dr. Kim. You never met my mom.
