This work includes Foreword by David Nicholson - Chief Executive, National Health Service of England. In the past, there has been too little emphasis and investment made in developing leaders in healthcare. People have become leaders without being prepared or trained or supported in the role. Individuals need to understand the context, the concept and models of good leadership, the practical steps to becoming a good leader, and how to sustain the various components of a well functioning and effective organisation, whether that is a large NHS trust or hospital department, a clinical group or practice team. This guide has been written by a range of writers from organisational consultancy and NHS backgrounds who are all experienced in developing and supporting leaders, planning and providing education, and change management. It is specially designed for independent learning, with answers to frequently asked questions, self-assessment exercises and helpful tips. "How to Succeed as a Leader" is ideal for all healthcare professionals in (or aspiring to) leadership roles. It also provides inspiration for academics and workplace educators, managers and leaders in government, strategic health authorities and workforce deaneries. 'There is constant reorganisation and a changing culture in our health service. Good leadership is essential to address the changes required and take others with you so that the service can function effectively. There has been an amateurish approach to leadership in the NHS in the past, where people have become leaders without being prepared or trained for the role or supported in it. This book is all about presenting you with a practical approach to becoming a competent leader, to prepare you to lead in a positive way and realise your responsibilities as a leader.'

Life’s too short to be unhappy at work “I’m working harder than I ever have, and I don't know if it’s worth it anymore.” If you’re a manager or leader, these words have probably run through your mind. So many of us are feeling fed up, burned out, and unhappy at work: the constant pressure and stress, the unending changes, the politics—people feel as though they can't give much more, and performance is suffering. But it’s work, after all, right? Should we even expect to be fulfilled and happy at work? Yes, we should, says Annie McKee, coauthor of the bestselling Primal Leadership. In her new transformative book, she makes the most compelling case yet that happiness―and the full engagement that comes with it―is more important than ever in today’s workplace, and she sheds new light on the powerful relationship of happiness to individual, team, and organizational success. Based on extensive research and decades of experience with leaders, this book reveals that people must have three essential elements in order to be happy at work: A sense of purpose and the chance to contribute to something bigger than themselves A vision that is powerful and personal, creating a real sense of hope Resonant, friendly relationships With vivid and moving real-life stories, the book shows how leaders can use these powerful pillars to create and sustain happiness even when they’re under pressure. By emphasizing purpose, hope, and friendships they can also ensure a healthy, positive climate for their teams and throughout the organization. How to Be Happy at Work deepens our understanding of what it means to be truly fulfilled and effective at work and provides clear, practical advice and instruction for how to get there—no matter what job you have.
