—Donald M. Berwick, MD, MPP, FRCP, president emeritus and senior fellow, Institute for Healthcare Improvement; former administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
"This book is a must for every nurse leader's library and should be a resource and tool in every graduate nursing program, particularly those who are preparing doctoral students focused on systems leadership. It is full of experiential learning, and brings leadership to life."

"At a time when bold changes are necessary in the delivery of health services to improve outcomes and lower costs, the authors provide both compelling reasons for change and specific case studies of how it can be done. This is an important resource for leaders at every level in every part of the health sector today. It should be required reading for all those who want to improve the performance of their part of our medical enterprise."
—John Rother, president and CEO, National Coalition on Health Care
"Transforming Health Care Leadership is a well-constructed guide to transforming health care by creating transformational leadership. Anyone serious about improving health care—who has hope that we can actually succeed at making things better for our patients and communities while practicing good financial stewardship—needs to read this book."
