Working in healthcare administration can feel like an African safari, an ongoing experience of ups & downs, high & lows, knowns & unknowns; where excitement and tension run side by side. There are certain principles that make African safaris truly epic, and as we apply them to our lives and leadership, we become more engaged, less burnt out, and. Steve "Safari Dude" Fredlund uses compelling stories from the Savannah to invite us into The Safari Way by choosing our experience, getting the right peeps in our Jeeps, doing the unright thing, taking in the view and embracing the adventure.
