When Lives are at Stake: A Heart Surgeon’s Perspective on High-Performing Teams
Show Notes

Rebel Leadership happens in the most unexpected places. We convinced a heart surgeon — yup, you heard it right — to talk to us about the inner-workings of leadership in the complex heart surgery operating room where patients' lives are at stake. We have the honor of speaking with Dr. Igor Gosev, one of four cardiac surgeons at the University of Rochester Medical Center. He’s a key opinion leader for mechanical circulatory support — in other words, he performs and educates nationally on his innovative surgical techniques in heart surgery. 

Amy Quinlan, a Nurse Practitioner with years of experience specializing in heart failure, elaborates on the magnificent team dynamics in heart surgery.
