Published by Jossey-Bass, The Indispensable Health Care Manager
offers healthcare managers information and tools needed to excel in the
diverse roles required of them. The authors use real-life situations and
illustrative examples to describe 10 mindset or role shifts that are critical
to success in the healthcare management field. These role shifts include
moving from provider orientation to customer obsession; from directing
to coaching; and from status quo to courage, risk, and change. Using their
extensive experience working with healthcare managers in a wide variety
of settings, Leebov and Scott provide self-assessment devices for helping
managers determine how they can benefit from a particular role shift,
as well as tools for making the shift.
Leebov has an independent consulting practice based in Rydal, PA. She
is also an associate of Sage Consulting in Novato, CA. Gail Scott is president
of Gail Scott & Associates, a healthcare consulting group in Meadowbrook,
PA; she serves as seminar faculty for several ACHE programs.
