Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anna M. McDaniel, DNS, RN (Indiana University School of Nursing)
Description: This is the second edition of a popular 1995 book about the role of transformational leaders embedded in changing healthcare systems. This new edition includes material on conflict resolution and spirituality in the workplace not included in the first release.
Purpose: The purpose is to help nurses in leadership positions adapt to the rapid changes taking place in healthcare and to develop the new skills required to thrive in evolving systems. This book is a synthesis of organizational theory and practice in a nursing/healthcare context.
Audience: It is intended for nurse managers experiencing or anticipating change in their role. Advanced graduate students in nursing or healthcare administration would also benefit from this book. The authors are recognized as experts in organizational change and transformational leadership, serving as consultants to many healthcare systems across the U.S.
Features: The authors describe the changes that have occurred in healthcare that drive the current "revolution." They explain the leadership competencies required to succeed in integrated systems for care delivery. A comprehensive self-assessment and plan for leadership development are particular strengths of the book. Examples of several tools used by the authors in training workshops are included in the appendixes.
Assessment: The authors draw heavily from content found in current organizational theory and change literature. By grounding the concepts within the healthcare system, the authors present otherwise abstract ideas in a manner accessible to nurses practicing in the "real world."

Revised and expanded and with a catchier subtitle than its 1985 incarnation, this volume describes the paradigm shift the authors believe is occurring in the health care field and offers managers suggestions and ideas for improving their management skills in the new environment. Updates include updated figures and new chapters on the "soul" of the workplace and on managing conflict in organizations in the midst of intense change. Annotation c.
