‘Healthcare Executives’ is the perfect book for every aspiring or existing leader. The author clearly defines and develops key attributes for leaders a healthcare system deserves.

The author is a transformational and enthusiastic leader who advocates an environment that empowers people and builds trust – and who holds the patient at the heart of care.
‘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.
