“This book is well written and referenced and would be a very valuable resource to any physician starting their leadership journey. I wish it had been available when I started mine. This book consolidates many aspects of leadership decisions and responsibility in a practical format in one place.”
Dr Ken Harris, MD, FRCSC,
IN A CREATIVE yet straightforward fashion, Dr. Malcolm Ogborn provides a valuable and insightful resource that can support professionals, particularly physicians, who find themselves thrust into leadership roles requiring knowledge and skills that have not been part of their professional training.
Sudden Leadership follows the early leadership journeys of two fictitious physicians. For each scenario in which the characters find themselves, Dr. Ogborn reviews relevant, evidence-based literature and offers pragmatic and field-tested approaches that allow new professional leaders to face their challenges with confidence.
Topics include defining one's identity as leader, attracting and engaging followers, motivating and managing others doing the work, running productive meetings, handling tough conversations, mastering time allocation, managing conflict, avoiding burnout, and leading system improvement.
Engaging and educational, Sudden Leadership will make a vital addition to any professional’s library.
