Book Description

Instructor Resources: Teaching tips, sample syllabus and a sample course schedule.

Success isn’t something you are born with—it is carefully cultivated and mastered. And a job, when it works well, can fit like a glove and provide immense personal and professional satisfaction. This book’s 50 succinct lessons will guide students as they begin their careers in healthcare management and help them achieve success and professional fulfillment—whatever their role. Each of the 50 lessons outlines traits, behaviors, and skills needed to maximize strengths, master career success, and achieve the perfect job fit. White and Lindsey, in various academic and healthcare management roles, have provided career counseling for hundreds of students and early careerists. Each lesson concludes with helpful exercises that will prompt self-reflection and recommended resources for additional information.

Written in a conversational, friendly style, the 50 lessons broadly cover three major areas: managing yourself, managing your job, and taking charge of your career. The 50 lessons are filled with bulleted lists and quick tips and address specific topics such as:

  • Establishing a life vision and developing a personal brand
  • Managing the first 90 days of a healthcare management position
  • Mastering presentations through writing and speaking tips
  • Building and supporting strong teams
  • Developing a professional development plan
  • Balancing life and work

New graduates of master’s programs and early careerists in the field will particularly benefit from this book, but readers at other points in their career will also find it useful.
