Managing the Mirrors
Practical Insights for Medical Leaders
About the Book
Clinical skills only get you so far when you’re trying to run a successful medical practice: You must also be an effective manager and leader to bring out the best in your staff. In this guide for medical practice leaders, the author draws on his experience in varied health care settings to help you: • see the blind spots and problems that limit your leadership and management potential; • develop strategies to make necessary improvements to address those problems; • engage in reflection to improve yourself, your staff, your practice, and most importantly, your patients’ overall experience. Using a mirror analogy, the author urges medical practice leaders to see themselves and others objectively to assess where they stand. Mirrors give you the ability to make a realistic assessment of the effort it will take to reach a goal—and can help track progress. Join the author as he shares lessons from managing medical practices and provides a detailed blueprint to fixing the problems right in front of you.
