Quantum LeadershipAuthors: Kathy Malloch, Tim Porter O'Grady, Nancy M. Albert, Sharon Pappas
Quantum Leadership: Creating Sustainable Value in Health Care, Sixth Edition focuses on the issue of leadership within the shifting landscape of health care. With clarity and depth of detail, the text features theories about contemporary leadership within today’s increasingly complex and diverse healthcare delivery system. It works from a model of complexity leadership, in which leadership is not limited to those with certain titles but an attribute that every healthcare worker can develop for success in fast-moving, information-overloaded organizations.
The Sixth Edition focuses on supporting high levels of interdisciplinary teamwork as a key leadership strategy to further advance the skills necessary to lead complex, cross-departmental teams. The unique hallmark of this text is its focus on the post-industrial, complex and highly mobile modern healthcare system. The authors emphasize the importance of the characteristics and role of leaders in guiding individuals and teams in these new models.
