Leadership in Practice prepares leaders for the unpredictability, complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty they will face while leading public health and healthcare organizations and teams. It equips leaders with practical, sustainable, and universal skills, abilities, and intangibles needed to thrive in a constantly-evolving environment. Building on a solid theoretical foundation, Leadership in Practice addresses the challenges leaders face in many contexts by exploring the skills and behaviors necessary for the effective practice of leadership. Integrating the most relevant leadership theories, their history, evidence, and application in public health and healthcare, chapters focus on the essential competencies that leaders in public health and healthcare must master, including effective dialogue, ethical leadership and moral courage, systems thinking, strategic thinking and analysis, and emotional intelligence. The textbook discusses the many challenges leaders face, including change leadership, developing an equity mindset, effective leadership during organizational crises, and meaningful engagement with the communities served. Case studies relevant to public health and healthcare examine topics such as leadership during COVID-19, Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters, community engagement and team building, hiring diverse personnel, preventing burnout, and more to provide lessons learned from real-world examples. Leadership in Practice brings together a diverse array of leaders and a wide range of voices to impart wisdom and share unique perspectives and experiences from public health and healthcare settings. This authoritative resource is essential for anyone training in public health, healthcare management, and related health professions, and illustrates why it is critical to learn from leaders who possess different worldviews, experiences, and training backgrounds.
