You know how to practice medicine. Now learn how to lead with this insightful resource from one of medicine's most accomplished leaders.

In Physician Leadership, renowned medical leader Dr. Karen J. Nichols delivers a concise guide for busy physicians doing their best to successfully lead people and organizations. The book covers foundational leadership essentials that every physician needs to master to transform themselves from a highly motivated novice leader into an effective, skilled, and productive leader.

Each chapter offers readers a summary of the crucial points found within, sample questions, exercises, and a bibliography of the relevant academic literature for further study. Ideal for doctors who don't have the time to peruse an unwieldy collection of the latest research and thought on organizational leadership, or to take a multi-day course on effective leadership, Physician Leadership distills the author's extensive research and personal experience into a short and practical handbook.

Physician Leadership provides actionable, real-world advice for practicing and aspiring physicians:
* A thorough introduction to personal approach and style when interacting with patients, managers, boards, and committees
* An exploration of how to employ the principles of effective communication to achieve desired results and practical techniques for implementing those principles
* Practical discussions of the role that perspectives play in shaping an organization's culture and how those perspectives affect leadership efficacy
* In-depth examinations of approaches to decision-making that get buy-in from others and achieve results

Perfect for doctors stepping into a leadership role for the first time, Physician Leadership also belongs on the bookshelves of experienced physician leaders seeking to improve their leadership abilities and improve the results of their organizations.
