Synopses & Reviews
Masterpieces in Health Care Leadership: Cases and Analysis for Best Practices is a series of case studies that describes in detail the overview and framework for understanding the role and impact of healthcare leaders, vis-A -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. The case studies represent the nationa (TM)s a oewhoa (TM)s whoa 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. This book will inspire both clinical and non-clinical executives to think critically about their current organizational structures and demonstrate how to use the tools to diagnose, analyze, design, and implement successful organizational structures.
Book News Annotation:
Organizational consultants Pelote and Route describe how leaders from nine successful healthcare organizations (such as The Brigham and Women's Hospital, The Cathedral Foundation, and Mountain States Health Alliance) engage their staff to achieve extraordinary results. Instead of focusing on analyzing details and establishing productive teams, the leaders profiled spent most of their time leading and developing others. Much of the book consists of excerpts from interviews with real-life leaders and workers, along with supplementary context and commentary. The authors use the cases to create a ten-step framework for building and sustaining high-quality care. The implementation strategies described are geared toward middle managers.
