What should cardiologists learn about management and leadership?

The further we advance in our medical career as cardiologists, the more we have to face the challenges of management and leadership. We should not make the mistake and see this as a problem, but rather as a chance and an opportunity. Taking a role in management and leadership is a privilege and belongs to the responsibilities of every cardiologist, even or especially early in his/her career. What kind of challenges do we have to face? Let’s focus for example on education: we all want to be trained, we all want to learn more about novel techniques, and we all expect to be educated. But we should not forget that, when starting our career, it is also our commitment and our responsibility to start training and educating the next generations very early. We may all see deficits in our own education; what we should do, however, is to take responsibility and try to make it better for the next generation. Motivating, inspiring, educating, training and recruiting young students and physicians is the genuine obligation of every cardiologist.
