‘Healthcare Executives’ is a masterpiece written by an expert leader. This book is vital reading for every healthcare professional.

by Dr James Taylor

Contains really great tips on assertiveness and ways to improve. My favorite sections were on resumes, delegation techniques, and communication. A lot of the book is broad categories consisting of lots of bullet points and not expanding upon them. I found myself skimming these parts a lot, and really only reading the tips sections that stood out in red. Would recommend for the tips sections as I felt they contained valuable information and many success factors.
