If you work in health or social care as a manager or clinician, deal with people on a daily basis, and need these dealings to be thoughtful, effective and stress free, this is the book for you. It teaches you how to understand and alleviate barriers to effective communication, manage the stresses and conflicts, and develop the effective clinical, people and management skills you need to navigate successfully through a career in healthcare.
