The DNA of Physician Leadership: Creating Dynamic Executives (Paperback)
Physicians are increasingly moving into leadership roles and possess enormous potential to advance health care. However, clinical training and practice does not provide the necessary skills for a transition from clinician into physician-leader. In fact, the very skills that make for an outstanding physician often compete, or interfere, with the skills required to be successful in wider leadership roles.
The authors provide the aspiring physician-leader with the understanding of what is required to be a successful physician-leader and the tools necessary for the transition including: Understanding the business of health care; Recognizing physician-leader psychology; Establishing influence, the bedrock of leadership; Creating a compelling strategy; Developing high-performing teams; Delegating to maximize leadership impact; Communicating for effectiveness; Negotiating for maximum benefit.
This book is practical and realistic with case studies and recommendations on how to make the changes necessary to transform into a successful and fulfilled physician-leader.
