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.
