Book Description

The most successful corporations recognize that leadership is their only sustainable competitive advantage. How are you fostering the future leaders of your organization?

Growing Leaders in Healthcare shares strategies from corporations recognized for their history of successful leadership development. Healthcare executives can use these same best practices to cultivate high-potential employees, develop succession plans, reduce turnover, and foster a strong culture of leadership in their organizations.

This book provides tools and advice senior executives can use to formalize leadership evaluation and development activities. Exercises throughout the book will help leaders assess their organizations’ current practices and effectively implement new strategies. These lessons can be applied to all healthcare organizations, regardless of size and complexity.

–Christopher J. Durovich, FACHE, Chief Executive Officer, Children’s Medical Center, Dallas"When improving processes and quality, leadership is the most critical factor. Growing Leaders in Healthcare makes a compelling case for leadership development and, more importantly, spells out a process for developing internal leaders who embody and continue your hospital's values instead of just hiring a new leader from the outside."
