ROCHESTER, Minn., Sept. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Mayo Clinic Press today announced the publication of "YOU'RE THE LEADER. NOW WHAT? Leadership Lessons from Mayo Clinic," by Richard Winters, M.D., an emergency physician, executive coach, and Director of Leadership Development for the Mayo Clinic Care Network. The book explores a clear, practical framework to address emerging challenges with emotional intelligence and the collective strengths of any team.
In today's complex, ever-changing work environment, leadership has never been more challenging. Colleagues disagree, emotions run high, and the way forward confounds even the most seasoned leader. While leaders may hold the expertise and authority to make swift decisions, effective leadership calls for a measured, team-focused approach guided by diverse perspectives and uncertain environments.
Based on years of experience at one of the world's leading hospitals, Dr. Winters details how to lead through complex challenges with such strategies as:
1. Create Shared Reality – tap collective experience to address the context, intensity, and time frame of challenging decisions.
2. Identify Fears and Worries – bring worries to the forefront of decision-making (acknowledging fears to help align team efforts).
3. Create Shared Vision – infuse mission and values into decision-making and align colleagues toward a common purpose.
4. The Five Hats of Effective Leaders – develop the best in colleagues during one-to-one conversations through teaching, mentoring, coaching, supervision, and sponsorship.
5. Champion the Way Forward – bring learning back into your decision-making process, and capture insights for future decisions.
Effective leaders develop leaders at all levels and, rather than create followers, they bring colleagues together to make sense of challenges, adapt, and achieve results.
With a clear, easy-to-follow process, YOU'RE THE LEADER. NOW WHAT? helps new and seasoned leaders navigate organizational challenges and threats, reduce employee burnout, and boost overall satisfaction.
