This book is predicated on a belief that the leadership culture in medicine can be changed for the benefit of office staffs, practices, universities and medical schools, and ultimately the profession and with direct benefits to patients.
The book has five sections:
The first section focuses on the impact of good personal leadership on business results and on how the same type of results can be obtained in medicine by enhancing the personal leadership and interpersonal skills of physicians.
The second section focuses on The Seven Common Leadership MisstepsSM of Physicians.
Section three presents data concerning patient, health care employee, and physician satisfaction.
The fourth section outlines an action plan for successful physicians and organizations to achieve positive, measurable, and sustainable change in personal leadership skills and interpersonal behavior.
The final section is an amalgam of information, including women and their leadership in medicine and a plan for instituting leadership development in medical schools as a step to begin to shift the entire leadership culture in medicine.
