I think we need you back in the UK, Umish. I'm sure that the NHS could squeeze in a few more meetings, just for you!
Hint:- the good leader knows his people, and talks (as in, listens
) to them everyday ... as in, all the time. He is the first amongst equals, and knows what's going on without wasting time on meetings.
For what it's worth, back in Bygone Days we had army techs scattered about in the various British Military Hospitals (remember those, anyone?) all over Germany. For reasons amounting to tradition, we (that is, the Section Heads) used to gather at "HQ" once a month. When a new OC (boss) turned up, he (rightly) questioned the need for such regular meetings, and we tried once every two months. We found that worked just fine ... and I'm talking here about the days way before email, mobile phones and all the rest. The key point here, though, is that I (or my immediate boss ... but usually me) used to visit
all those outposts on a regular basis. That is, got off my ***** and went out and saw things (and met those concerned) for myself!
