Description

Using a clear and practical framework, real-life experiences and back-of-the-napkin drawings based on years of leadership experience at the prestigious Mayo Clinic, You’re the Leader. Now What? helps new and more seasoned leaders develop an organization that responds effectively to emerging challenges and threats, while reducing employee burnout and boosting satisfaction.

Your colleagues are seated around the table, all looking at you as you arrive in the conference room. They disagree on what factors to consider and how to proceed. You decide it’s critical to rely on your own extensive expertise to carry your team forward. Only your directives fall flat, your colleagues are even more disgruntled, and the way forward is muddier than ever. 

In You’re the Leader. Now What?, Richard Winters, Mayo Clinic emergency physician, executive coach, and director of leadership development for the Mayo Clinic Care Network, explores the dangers of embracing the role of heroic expert in making decisions.  Using a clear and practical framework, real-life experiences and back-of-the-napkin drawings, You’re the Leader. Now What? shows how to leverage the emotional intelligence and collective strengths of your team to create an effective and successful way forward.  Instead of telling everyone what to do, you’ll develop a leadership style that responds effectively to emerging challenges and threats, while reducing employee burnout and boosting satisfaction.

This book of Leadership 101 lessons from the world-renowned Mayo Clinic will help you lead when have no clear answer, when the processes and checklists put in place are inadequate, and when all eyes are on you, asking, “Now what?”
