Redefining Health Care by Michael E Porter and Elizabeth Olmstead Teisberg
Redefining Health Care by Michael E Porter and Elizabeth Olmstead Teisberg. In this textbook-style approach to health care problems and proposed solutions the authors take a data-based, deep look into problems that plague healthcare including measurement, competition, quality, reimbursement, insurance, etc., It’s a very in-depth, academic book rich with citings and background to get you up to speed on the challenges facing the industry.
No Ego by Cy Wakeman
No Ego by Cy Wakeman. The book No Ego was recommended to me by a health center CEO who told me how it transformed her thinking about her need to make employees happy, employee engagement and drama in the workplace. Having read the book twice this last month, I strongly agree that Cy Wakeman makes some very practical and grounded points about how managers can more effectively manage. This is a fabulous read to challenge age old “management wisdom”.

The Brain That Changes Itself. Norman Doidge, MD. While our attitude and behavior towards change create various barriers, this book demonstrates that our brain readily creates new neural pathways (aka plasticity) to help a blind person see through their tongue. It gives a new perspective on the power of thinking positively.
