"There are good leaders, then there are exceptional leaders. Exceptional leaders use competenciesa set of professional and personal skills, knowledge, values, and traits that guide a leaders performance. In an era of change and uncertainty in healthcare, it is crucial that leaders learn not only how to be exceptional, but also what makes an exceptional leader. In this second edition of their best-selling book, the authors detail 16 competencies grouped in four cornerstone categories: Well-Cultivated Self-Awareness, Compelling Vision, A Real Way With People, and Masterful Execution. Each of the 16 competencies is explored in its own chapter to define the competency, provide examples and advice, and explain the common skill deficits that prevent its mastery.
