Are you pursuing a meaningful career or merely working at a string of jobs? This book will motivate you to think beyond the pressing day-to-day challenges of healthcare management and plan a career with purpose. It describes what you can do now to infuse more meaning into your professional life—no matter what stage you are at in your career. Learn the strategies for developing the leadership competencies, including self-awareness and mentoring skills, that are shared by executives who make a difference. The authors’ experience and wisdom is enhanced with interviews with respected healthcare leaders who have built lasting legacies.
