Dr. David Pryor believes in authentic leadership—a trait, he says, not only means being honest and authentic, but also having the ability to understand, relate, and resonate with the people he is working with.
“Leaders set values; values drive behaviors, and behaviors create a culture that delivers a performance,” said Pryor, who will be the inaugural speaker in the Kelley Business of Medicine MBA Class of 2016 Lecture Series.
