Some healthcare leaders thrive despite the unprecedented obstacles they are currently facing. What distinguishes these leaders from others in their ability to persevere and succeed? This book focuses on the importance of developing a core set of values that drive our actions when things get difficult. It identifies the essential values that highly effective leaders possess and describes the specific behaviors they employ.
In this revised and expanded fourth edition, inclusive leadership, clinical integration, employee burnout, post-COVID leadership and succession planning are among the new topics addressed. The book provides useful self-reflection tools and exercises, such as evaluations for values and emotional intelligence. Sidebars and opening vignettes mirror workplace scenarios and help readers understand the chapter content better.
At no other time in history has healthcare leadership been so critical. Leadership in Healthcare will help healthcare professionals develop the skills they need to lead effectively through difficult times.
You can’t prepare for every situation, but you can be prepared to lead. When the next challenge arises, the right approach will help you rise to the occasion and guide your team to success.
This book skips the complex theories and jargon and gets right to practical solutions. You will learn how to develop skills that can be applied immediately to meet any challenge.
Eleven chapters cover real-life topics like communication, diversity and workplace culture. Each chapter begins with a self-assessment guide so you can identify relevant strengths to develop and address opportunities for growth. Throughout the book, you will find coaching tips to get the most from your team, reflection questions to help you explore fresh approaches to current situations and ideas for sharing strategies with colleagues to help them grow as leaders with you.
“The coronavirus pandemic has validated the principles of this book—that we need healthcare with no address, helping people where they are and when they need it,” writes Stephen K. Klasko, MD, in Patient No Longer: Why Healthcare Must Deliver the Care Experience That Consumers Want and Expect. “Telehealth worked. Providing guidance to families worked. Listening worked. Even under our greatest threat since World War II, the principles of using digital medicine to get care out to people turned out to be critical.”
Klasko and Ryan Donohue explore this evolving delivery model in a fascinating look at the history of patient-centric care and the rise of the healthcare consumer as a powerful new voice. In addition to the compelling reasons why consumer-centric care is so crucial, the authors also share how leaders can work to build health systems focused on it.
