A new book entitled leadership and change for health professionals is being published in June 2017

This book is essential reading for all health professionals

A new book entitled leadership and change for health professionals is being published in June 2017.  The book was edited by Elizabeth A. Curtis (TCD) and John G. Cullen (NUI Maynouth).  The foreword written by Professor  Thomas Garavan, Edinburgh Napier Business School, UK states:

"Amongst the vast number of leadership texts published every year this book stands out. It has been edited with considerable care by two highly respected scholars in the field to make it accessible to all those interested in, and practising, leadership, whether healthcare professionals or students. It is well organised and moves seamlessly to address many important questions about the nature of leadership, including important questions of ethics, gender, trust, motivation, innovation, teams, and distributed leadership. The final section focuses on leading change in healthcare, a critical element of leadership practice in today’s world.”

Several distinguished academics from the field of leadership have endorsed this book including Sharon Turnbull, Visiting Professor, Lancaster University Management School, UK states:
"Too many leadership books ignore context. This book, however, is firmly rooted in the healthcare context, and aspires to help professionals in this sector to reflect deeply on the complexities of leading through uncertain times. Whilst each chapter stands alone, the book's merit is in offering multiple perspectives. Curtis and Cullen have encouraged the book's contributors to address the big debates and themes in healthcare leadership today, whilst keeping in sharp focus the practice of leadership."
