Contribution to Book
Leadership for Health Professionals: Theory, Skills, and Applications
Georgia Southern University faculty members Gerard R. Ledlow and James H. Stephens co-authored "Leadership Models in Practice" in Leadership for Health Professionals: Theory, Skills, and Applications, Third Edition.
Book Summary: Leadership for Health Professionals: Theory, Skills, and Applications, Third Edition is the first textbook of its kind to apply classical knowledge of leadership theory and time-honored best practices of industry leaders to a health organization context. This comprehensive and well-organized text is grounded in real-world applications of theoretical concepts, and focuses on practical examples of leadership in actual healthcare scenarios.
Themes of leadership principles, applications and constructs such as organizational culture, cultural competency, ethical frameworks and moral practice, scientific methodology, leader competencies, external and internal assessment and evaluation, communication, planning, decision-making, employee enhancement, and knowledge management are woven through the entire text.
The authors of the Third Edition have over four decades of practical leadership experience in corporate and federal governmental health organizations from entry to executive levels, as well as over twenty-five years of academic experience as faculty in doctoral research institutions. Leadership for Health Professionals: Theory, Skills, and Applications, Third Edition utilizes the author-created learning model, Focused Content Cycling, which is the reiteration of key leader systems, actions and behaviors throughout the text using multiple learning modalities. This process provides additional learning potential within a leadership course with the intent to bridge theory with practice.
