'In these pages you will find a rich mixture of the best in leadership and organisation development practice and theory, based on a lifetime of studying and applying the principles of why some healthcare organisations succeed and why some fail.' This inspirational book analyses the attitudes and disciplines which make people and the organizations for which they work more effective, more productive and generally more successful. The author, who has experience of working in healthcare and manufacturing and with senior civil servants, and is also familiar with key academic literature, sets out a highly practical combination of practice, theory and policy applicable in a wide variety of healthcare situations. Now revised, including an entirely new chapter on being patient-focused, this remains an invaluable resource for health service leaders and future leaders including managers, clinicians, policy makers and academics.

This work includes Foreword by David Nicholson - Chief Executive, National Health Service of England. In the past, there has been too little emphasis and investment made in developing leaders in healthcare. People have become leaders without being prepared or trained or supported in the role. Individuals need to understand the context, the concept and models of good leadership, the practical steps to becoming a good leader, and how to sustain the various components of a well functioning and effective organisation, whether that is a large NHS trust or hospital department, a clinical group or practice team. This guide has been written by a range of writers from organisational consultancy and NHS backgrounds who are all experienced in developing and supporting leaders, planning and providing education, and change management. It is specially designed for independent learning, with answers to frequently asked questions, self-assessment exercises and helpful tips. "How to Succeed as a Leader" is ideal for all healthcare professionals in (or aspiring to) leadership roles. It also provides inspiration for academics and workplace educators, managers and leaders in government, strategic health authorities and workforce deaneries. 'There is constant reorganisation and a changing culture in our health service. Good leadership is essential to address the changes required and take others with you so that the service can function effectively. There has been an amateurish approach to leadership in the NHS in the past, where people have become leaders without being prepared or trained for the role or supported in it. This book is all about presenting you with a practical approach to becoming a competent leader, to prepare you to lead in a positive way and realise your responsibilities as a leader.'

p>Angela Barron McBride has a long and renowned history in nursing leadership and education. This book, which focuses on developing nurse leaders, carries on in the tradition of her previous successes, including The Growth and Development of Mothers, recognized as one of the best books of 1973 by both The New York Times and the American Journal of Nursing. From then to now, she has exerted leadership from many positions, which the American Academy of Nursing has celebrated by awarding her the status of "Living Legend." This book draws on her extensive leadership experience as an internationally recognized nurse scholar and pragmatist to help all nurses develop their leadership abilities. The book's three sections address the major views of leadership that have occupied center stage in recent decades: leadership as personal, leadership as achieving organizational goals, and leadership as transformational. It references both literature and personal experiences that bring timely issues to focus, from career stages and mentoring needs, to developmental tasks by career trajectory, and more. Angela Barron McBride brings a practicality and insightfulness to the subject that will empower you when considering your leadership development, no matter your specialty or career stage.

Both the framework and the book make notable contributions to both theory and practice. The book will be of value to scholars and organization leaders in understanding the concepts of value creation and organizational effectiveness. It will be an aid to consultants in conceptualizing strategies for organizations and in counselling leaders on how to operationalize the concepts in their organizations. S.R. Mohnot, Global Business Review This is a very readable and excellently presented volume. It will interest anyone concerned with organizational effectiveness and the competing values model. Economic Outlook and Business Review I recommend this book to anyone wishing to understand and practice leadership. Leadership is often treated in mutually-exclusive categories, such as Theory X vs. Theory Y, managers vs. leaders, transactional vs. transformative, initiation vs. consideration, etc. The Competing Values Framework presented in this book transcends these dualities. It features eight competing but complementary values that are critical for managing today s complex and pluralistic organizations. The framework emphasizes the need for balance among the eight leadership roles, and an appreciation of the context, timing, and contingencies when the leadership roles facilitate and inhibit collective endeavors. I have followed the development and testing of the Competing Values Framework over the years. It makes important contributions to both theory and practice. It stimulates positive learning outcomes for students and managers. Andrew H. Van de Ven, University of Minnesota, US Creating value in a firm is an enormously complex endeavor. Yet, despite its complexity, value creation is the objective of every enterprise, every worker, and every leader. The Competing Values Framework can help leaders understand more deeply and act more effectively. In the first book to comprehensively present this framework, the authors discuss its core elements and focus attention on rethinking the notion of value. They emphasize specific tools and techniques leaders can use to institute sustainable change. The Competing Values Framework was developed in response to the need for a broadly applicable model that would foster successful leadership, improve organizational effectiveness, and promote value creation. It helps leaders think differently about value creation and shows them how to clarify purpose, integrate practices, and lead people. Named one of the 40 most important frameworks in the history of business, it has been studied and tested in organizations for more than 25 years. Currently used by hundreds of firms around the world, the Competing Values Framework serves as a map, an organizing mechanism, a sense-making device, a source of new ideas, and a learning system. This accessible resource will be of great use to organizational scholars interested in the concepts of value creation, organizational effectiveness, and competing values; to leaders and managers interested in enhancing and creating value in their organizations; and to change agents and consultants who use the Competing Values Framework as part of their intervention strategies or who are looking to help improve organizations.

Management fads come and go, however leadership principles that have proven to be effective in improving performance and producing lasting results are indelibly preserved. Such is the case of the Truskie L-4 Leadership Strategy. Introduced in 1999 in his book, Leadership in High Performance Organizational Cultures, this updated and revised second edition expands on his proven leadership model and is enhanced with new and important information. Successfully implemented by thousands of leaders since it was first introduced ten years ago, it continues to be the go-to strategy for leaders who are attempting to build a high-performing organization in the midst of difficult and challenging economic times. From his studies and continued professional practice as a Fortune 500 executive coach and leadership professor, Truskie demonstrates how enlightened leaders (and organizations) have abandoned the dated and ineffective top-down management approach in favor of a much more adaptive and engaging one that creates an energized, innovative, and results-driven company culture.
