The psychiatric profession must ensure that its next generation of leaders has the appropriate skills to provide mental health services in the face of globalization and urbanization, new technologies, and competing demands for shrinking resources. Developing leadership skills and leaders is critical in order to optimise the use of resources, their application, service planning and delivery of services for patients and their families. This is the first book on leadership (rather than management skills) to focus on psychiatry and mental health care. Contributions from international experts with clinical and non-clinical backgrounds pull together the theories and practical skills required to be a successful leader. The aim is to guide mental health professionals in general and psychiatrists in particular on how to gain the relevant skills and on how to utilise these skills and training to take on leadership roles in clinical and organisational settings. The book covers the role of the leader and the skills required for leadership, including chapters on communication, decision-making, team development, mentoring, gender issues in leadership, burnout and more. It includes a section on assessment tools and learning material. Essential reading for all those who aspire to lead in psychiatry!

The landscape of academic surgery has become increasingly complex. Young academic surgeons are now confronted with the task of juggling administrative, clinical, educational, and research responsibilities. While decades ago young faculty would look toward a single “triple threat” mentor, trainees and young junior faculty now must assemble a team of mentors who can help him/her craft a career trajectory for success in academia. In addition, with the emergence of team based science and an emphasis on clinical “crew management” faculty now must hone their leadership skills to be effective in the research and clinical environment. While many books focus on specific research or technical surgical topics, there is a need for an accessible, user-friendly text on the subject of surgical mentorship and leadership. In particular, there is a strong desire among trainees and young surgeons to learn about mentorship, as well as define leadership tools. Currently, there is a gap in the market for a definitive reference on surgical leadership and mentorship. This text will provide a comprehensive, state-of-the art definitive reference on surgical mentorship and leadership. The book will provide a practical, useful guide that reviews select topics on leadership and mentorship, as well as provide key information on how to launch a successful “young” surgical career. This text will focus on key points on how to identify mentors, highlight mentor-mentee “pearls”, as well as define key leadership traits in being successful as an academic surgeon. This text will serve as a very useful resource for young surgical faculty, as well as fellows and residents in a broad array of surgical training programs. Chapters will have multiple “call out” boxes to highlight key lessons learned, as well as provide mentorship and leadership “pearls.” All chapters will be written by experts in their field and will include the most up-to-date information from national and international leaders.

The scope of this book is sufficiently broad to be comprehensive and practical while still anticipating the further evolution of the academic medical practice in the years to come. Each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of clinic leadership and will offer real-world examples and management “pearls” for the clinic director. Chapters highlight common challenges and solutions and should be useful across disparate practice settings.
