The successful self-published author of The Sales Leaders Playbook writes his first mainstream leadership book There are enormous differences between managing and coaching. Yet many companies and organizations encourage their leaders to coach teams without ever teaching them how and without creating a culture that supports coaching. Nathan Jamail—a leading consultant, professional speaker, and the president of his own group of businesses—trains coaches at several Fortune 500 companies and learned that it takes not only different skills to achieve success, but a truly effective coach needs an organizational culture that creates and multiplies the success of every motivated team member. The Leadership Playbook shows leaders the skills necessary to be an effective coach and to build effective teams by: Fostering employees’ belief in the culture of a company Resolving issues proactively rather than reactively and creating an involvement that constantly pushes employees to be their best Focusing on the more humane principles of leadership—gratitude, positivity, and recognition—that keep morale high Holding teams and individuals accountable Constantly recruiting talent ("building the bench") rather than filling positions only when they are empty Combining research, interviews, and inspiring stories with the lessons that have earned Jamail the respect of the world’s foremost corporations including CISCO, FedEx, Sprint, the U.S. Army, and State Farm; The Leadership Playbook will dominate the category for years to come.

The Jaw Recovery Playbook System was developed as a result of thousands of hours of research and practical application. Having undergone two surgeries herself, Sasha Maggio saw a need for a comprehensive resource that was affordable and accessible to patients and their families. The multi-volume JRP System approaches the Jaw Surgery process from all angles. This Offense Playbook is designed for patients from the time they start braces for surgery and leading up to the surgery date, at which time the Game Day & Recovery Playbook takes over. With the Offense Playbook, the patient has a resource that serves as a guide for better preparing for surgery and recovery, while maintaining a sense of control when the pre-surgery process can be most frustrating. The Defense Playbook covers the same pre-surgery time frame but from a perspective geared toward the patient's family, spouse, children, parents, or anyone else in their support team. The Game Day & Recovery Playbook covers the time from setting the date for surgery and through the 12 weeks of the initial recovery process. Paired with the Recipe Playbook, patients and families are armed with the knowledge, experience, and support needed to undergo surgery with confidence, survive recovery with a more positive attitude, and recovery better, faster, and more completely! Additional Playbooks have been developed for the "Offensive Coordinators" (aka the surgeons, orthodontists, dentists, doctors, and other providers involved in the surgery process) and for managing orthodontic treatment (i.e. braces) from beginning to end, including caring for and using retainers properly to ensure the hard work pays off!

Can your employer require you to travel to India for a hip replacement as a condition of insurance coverage? If injury results, can you sue the doctor, hospital or insurer for medical malpractice in the country where you live? Can a country prohibit its citizens from helping a relative travel to Switzerland for assisted suicide? What about travel for abortion? In Patients with Passports, I. Glenn Cohen tackles these important questions, and provides the first comprehensive legal and ethical analysis of medical tourism. Medical tourism is a growing multi-billion dollar industry involving millions of patients who travel abroad each year to get health care. Some seek legitimate services like hip replacements and travel to avoid queues, save money, or because their insurer has given them an incentive to do so. Others seek to circumvent prohibitions on accessing services at home and go abroad to receive abortions, assisted suicide, commercial surrogacy, or experimental stem cell treatments. In this book, author I. Glenn Cohen focuses on patients traveling for cardiac bypass and other legal services to places like India, Thailand, and Mexico, and analyzes issues of quality of care, disease transmission, liability, private and public health insurance, and the effects of this trade on foreign health care systems. He goes on to examine medical tourism for services illegal in the patient's home country, such as organ purchase, abortion, assisted suicide, fertility services, and experimental stem cell treatments. Here, Cohen examines issues such as extraterritorial criminalization, exploitation, immigration, and the protection of children. Through compelling narratives, expert data, and industry explanations Patients with Passports enables the reader to connect with the most prevalent legal and ethical issues facing medical tourism today.

The entrenched separation of primary care and public health in the United States has been damaging and self-perpetuating. As both sectors struggle to meet their own challenges, population health has deteriorated due to their failure to integrate. For the first time, The Practical Playbook offers professionals in primary care and public health a roadmap to integrating their work with the larger goals of population health. Drawing on the experiences of hundreds of public health and primary care professionals from across the US, this book explains: · Why is population health important? · What are the practical steps that clinicians and public health professionals can take to work together to meet the needs of their community? · What are the signs that you're on the right track, and how can progress be sustained? Comprising case studies, practical recommendations, data resources, and commentaries from national leaders on both sides, The Practical Playbook is the new benchmark for primary care and public health practitioners working to improve population health.

"Spirituality in Nursing is thought provoking and Barnum offers some excellent material and food for thought."--Journal of Christian Nursing "This is a very thought-provoking book that asks many questions, often without answers. It could be used in an undergraduate or graduate course on spirituality or death and dying, or as in-service material in hospitals and other healthcare agencies. A very interesting chapter discusses near death experiences (NDE), a phenomenon that has begun to be accepted and has garnered more study."Score: 95, 4 stars --Doody's Can nurses be expected to deliver spiritual care? Should nursing claim healing as part of its mission? Should spiritual care be taught in nursing education? What do recent brain studies teach us about spirituality? Exploring these questions and many more, this new edition of Spirituality in Nursing provides a wealth of insight into current challenges presented to both practicing nurses and students. Newly updated, revised, and expanded, this third edition examines spirituality in nursing from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing from theoretical, historical, religious, psychological, and even physiological contexts. In her thought-provoking exploration of this sometimes controversial topic, Dr. Barnum traces nursing's involvement with spirituality from its historical ties with religion to the current interest in new age and alternative health methods. The chapters offer engaging discussions of important topics such as the distinction between spirituality and religion, spirituality and research, humanism, and death and dying. Taking a problem-solving approach, this book serves as an invaluable guide to understanding the complex and expanding role of spirituality in nursing.
