Editorial Reviews

Mary L. Fisher
This is a primer for leadership development that fits the ever-changing healthcare needs of tomorrow. Distinguishing between the operating systems/work process emphasis of managers and the consensus building/vision emphasis of leaders, the author makes a strong argument that we have plenty of managers but not nearly enough leaders. The purpose is to ground healthcare leaders with the skills necessary to build and maintain relationships and garner organizational commitment in order to ensure achievement of visionary goals. This worthy objective is well met. The intended audience is broad. Those who currently lead but need new skills for the future, as well as those who aspire to leadership can benefit from the emphasis on communications, consensus building, and worker empowerment. The author has a long history as an industrial leader and consultant and has authored two previous texts. Core content of the book includes defining leadership and its attributes, emphasizing the importance of trust to the leadership relationship, building commitment, communicating with clarity, managing change effectively, and coaching future leaders. A few case studies are included as illustrations. Ideas to help organizations to grow leaders would have been a nice addition to the text. This book resonates well. Its underlying philosophy is clear and well-presented. The need for leaders to ask the right questions and to bring workers fully into decision-making processes to better effect change is a valuable message to relay. If healthcare in America had more leaders as described by this book, we would be better off. The author has truly synthesized the best from a broad range of contemporary thinkingabout leadership.
