Leading Change and the Importance of Listening

This insightful episode on will focus on Leading Change with DaVita’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Kidney Care, Patrick McKinnon. Patrick shares his experiences with leading major change in his personal & professional life. At home, he made the decision to take his position and commute each week from Dallas to Denver, being away from his family 3x/week. Within the Village, he led the winding down of the DaVita Rx business in the summer of 2018. In the midst of high emotion and energy, Patrick says one practice was important—to listen.

As His One Tip:

Patrick shares with our listeners to keep one routine practice when you are in the depths of change.

“It was important for me to maintain routine through change. Having that one time for myself helped sustain me through change period.”
