Overview

Praise for Prescription for Lasting Success

"On a bookshelf full of management and leadership books, Prescription for Lasting Success stands out. It stands out because it is based on real-world experience and histories, not on theory or assumption. It stands out because these techniques have worked time and again, and it stands out because it is logical and makes sense. These are the factors that will allow it to stand the test of time."
—Richard F. Corlin, MD, Past President, American Medical Association

"It has always surprised me that so few companies/organizations can explain why customers and clients should do business with them. Dr. Reynolds's 4 Ps get to the root of the matter—especially in describing the need to articulate a company's purpose and passion. Organizational leaders would be well served to understand and implement these principles, as sustainable success is sure to follow."
—James L. Weidner, CEO, Cooperative of American Physicians

"Susan has captured the essence of my own experience with her leadership development and executive coaching here at Northeast Georgia Health System. Prescription for Lasting Success offers a foundation for personal and organizational development that one can continue to build on for years to come."
—Carol Burrell, President and CEO, Northeast Georgia Health System

"Leadership takes on real life in Dr. Reynolds's must-read book. It is filled with practical approaches and results-oriented suggestions. Challenges facing physicians and hospitals will be dealt with more effectively by everyone who reads this worthwhile contribution to the literature."
—C. Duane Dauner, President and CEO, California Hospital Association

"Prescription for Lasting Success is literally a masterpiece. It hits all the notes perfectly, talking about people and organizations and why they are successful and why they fail and even how they can be resurrected and healed. The book is not for the faint of heart nor is it written in academic jargon that masks the passion and joy of unbridled success. It is written by an exceptionally gifted author who herself has faced incredible challenges and accepted both defeat and success as treasures. I promise you that once you turn to the first page you are in for a great learning experience."
—Charles S. Lauer, author and former publisher, Modern Healthcare magazine

    This book is fantastic. Dr. Reynolds shows you how understanding

    This book is fantastic. Dr. Reynolds shows you how understanding and applying the tenants of her "4 P's" philosophy can make a big impact on your abilities as a leader. She also makes it clear that applying the "4 P's" to an organization as a whole can reveal where a company is truly thriving and where you can focus your energy to achieve better results. I applied her organizational health assessment to a number of the companies I've worked for over the years and through the lens of the "4 P's" model it is easy to see why some were excellent (and successful) working environments and why others were truly miserable places to work. Anyone interested in better understanding leadership, and interested in making a positive impact on any organization they are a part of should own this book.
