Inspired Physician Leadership: Creating Influence and Impact, 2nd Edition
Physicians have plenty of good ideas, but many physician leaders fall short of expectations due to their inability to effectively understand and handle the complex interpersonal and political issues that lie at the heart of successful and thriving leadership. The transition from clinician to physician leader is huge, requiring a different set of assumptions, skills, and approaches.
Covering topics like The Nature of Leadership and The Dynamics of Dialogue, to The Transition from Doer to Leader, Inspired Physician Leadership: Creating Influence and Impact, 2nd Edition is based in research and presented with applicable clarity to address the critical interpersonal skills necessary to promote influence, motivation, and needed change. Within it, physicians will find both grounded theory and practical tools to aid them in taking up the mantle of leadership.
