As you know if you follow my posts at all, I really enjoy passing on great books from authors who are self aware, have used their past brilliantly, and help others lean into their futures and into leadership with passion and perspective.
My colleague Cathy Robinson-Walker has put it all together in a great book for healthcare leaders. Cathy is a true professional who gets the link between outer and inner performance. Here is the book and a little about it.
Leading Valiantly for Healthcare: Four Steps to Sustainable Success
Whether you are a healthcare professional or a leader in another field, Leading Valiantly is a must-have resource for your leadership journey. Today’s professional landscape is constantly moving and shifting. The right solution is seldom obvious or expedient. Valiant Leaders are needed at the helm.
Possibly the most valuable characteristic of Robinson-Walker’s book is her consistent use of real-world situations and scenarios to provide clear understanding and actionable steps for leaders. Self-awareness is essential for leadership growth. Robinson-Walker presents six leadership seductions. Leadership seductions are common pitfalls that short-circuit leadership effectiveness. Valiant Leaders cultivate an awareness that enables them to identify and address the leadership seductions that are undermining their effectiveness.
