Leading Valiantly in Healthcare is an artful combination of insight and wisdom, shared in a fashion that will resonate with any contemporary leader. This book offers readers the rare opportunity to engage in personal executive coaching, with a nationally renowned master certified executive coach at their fingertips! --Dana Nicholson Bledsoe President, Children s and Women s Hospital Sacred Heart Health System

Leading Valiantly in Healthcare is an important book for today's leaders. Some leadership books you read and then put away. This is a book that can provide guided learning and splendid content for personal reflection beyond the first reading.

I accept your invitation to begin to walk this path. --Pamela Austin Thompson, MS, RN, CENP, FAAN CEO, American Organization of Nurse Executives Senior VP for Nursing, American Hospital Association

This book is an amazing compilation of theory, exemplars, and lessons learned wrapped in a foundation of leadership integrity.

This book is for every leader who wants to be the best leader he or she can be! --Rhonda Anderson, DNSc, RN, FAAN, FACHE Chief Executive Officer Cardon Children's Medical Center
