Leadership in Healthcare
IN THIS SUMMARY
Successful leadership is defined in many different ways. Whether an individual is a natural-born leader or learns the skills to become a good leader, having a value system and adhering to it is an integral contributor to success. In Leadership in Healthcare, Carson F. Dye shares his observations on how leadership is defined, developed, and executed in healthcare organizations. He contends that 1.) leadership is both inherent and learned, and 2.) leadership values and skills are interrelated — you cannot have one without the other. Although there are many ways in which good leadership can be measured, the constant and driving similarity between all effective leaders is having the correct leadership values.
