Sudden Leadership - A Survival Guide for Physicians
"Ogborn writes lucidly and engagingly, and he consistently comes across as a voice of reason, even when
tackling complicated issues: “Our brains love to reduce anxiety,” he writes at one point, and this caution against lazy conceptual tendencies guides his advice. He winningly urges his readers to “move from debate to design” by concentrating on such essentials as fairness and patience. Readers in the medical field will find this advice priceless, but all managers will appreciate its clarity.
A readable and wide-ranging tactical manual."
