Masterpieces in Healthcare Leadership is a blend of art (storytelling) & science (behavioral sciences). It includes specific, real-life, current examples told in short story format. These stories describe in vivid detail how healthcare leaders from nine successful organizations have engaged their staff to improve work processes and the satisfaction of patients.
This book inspires both clinical and non-clinical executives to think critically about their current organizational structures and demonstrate how to use the included tools to diagnose, analyze, design, implement successful organizational structures.
Through the voices of the individuals that were interviewed illustrate in story form 1) key leadership behaviors, 2) staff conduct that resulted from the leadership behaviors, and 3) outcomes of these behaviors. A focus on the few competencies that set these leaders apart revealed four prevalent themes that relate to the Healthcare Causal Flow Leadership Model: high patient satisfaction, favorable healthcare climate, supporting artifacts, and successful leadership behaviors. The editors introduce the concept of supporting artifacts which represent the unique processes or support structures that enable employee behaviors. A ten-step process for leaders to identify and implement artifacts is included. One of the top critical success factors of any leadership initiative is realizing the need for a compelling reason to change. Successful change requires senior management consensus and clear benchmarking information that supports assumptions in successful organizations.
The case studies represent the nation’s “who’s who” of top leaders and insight into how they achieved this status. Geared towards a very broad cross section of senior leaders, these case studies will also focus on the successful healthcare systems that currently produce high employee satisfaction, patient-centered environments, pro-active compliance, and extraordinary clinical outcomes.
Leadership in Health Care: Cases and Analysis for Best Practices is a series of case studies that will describe in detail the overview and framework for understanding the role and impact of healthcare leaders, vis-Ó-vis the concepts and tools already presented in the companion workbook by the same authors: Health Care Leadership: Practical Tools Workbook. Each case study will also feature in-depth leadership profiles (emotional intelligence, social motive, leadership style, and personality type) and practical analysis of the organizational structures and specific philosophies behind the specific topics. Features:
- Provides a research-based approach in assessing successful leadership profiles
- Describes for senior leaders the differentiating structures for pro-active compliance
- Contains practical implementation tools geared towards middle managers
- Plays a key role in defining the pre-requisites for deploying healthcare leadership across a variety of settings
