Book Description

ACHE's 2015 James A. Hamilton Healthcare Book of the Year

Finally there is a book for healthcare leaders that only comes along once in a generation. Dr. David Lawrence shares with the readers his vast experience in leading the largest non-profit health system in the country. He describes what a leader is: One who says, "Let's get it done." A leader is someone with a vision, who enables his/her team to stretch themselves, who builds a team, who can lead change and work with both physicians and boards of directors, who is fearless, and most of all, one who is humble. This book suggests practical strategies that can be adapted in any healthcare setting. There are gems in every chapter that bring one to say: "Why didn't I think of that?" Or "Why didn't I do that?" This is a must read for today's healthcare leaders that want to lead their organizations in rapidly changing times, those who want to improve their leadership, or for any aspiring leader that wants to take on more responsibility. It should be required reading for every graduate student in an MHA program or an Executive Healthcare MBA program.
