A Portable Mentor for Organizational Leaders

A Portable Mentor for Organizational Leaders provides lessons for potential leaders through succinct management advice addressing a wide range of organizational behavior topics. Through leadership advice and management tips, psychiatrist Kendall L. Stewart, MD, and a dozen directors and leaders from Southern Ohio Medical Center (SOMC) describe in easily readable points how leadership behavior drives teamwork, credibility in management, leadership consistency and management techniques.

Dr. Stewart and the SOMC writing teams present work from frontline management on a wide range of leadership challenges including teamwork and conflict, communication in relationships, setting leadership tone and team relationships, among others. The book is presented in sections on personal development, dealing with others and barriers to excellence. Within each section are straightforward perspectives on successful management, dealing with confrontation, preparing for criticism, accepting feedback, avoiding distractions, communicating goals and the importance of listening, among many other issues within the corporate culture.
