“Professor Bennett has a thorough and compelling leadership process that he shares in Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare. The lessons and practices he shares will make us all better leaders and most importantly, will directly benefit those patients and families we serve.”
David Feinberg, President and CEO
Geisinger Health


“This is one of the best and most powerful leadership books I have read. It is a concise and practical roadmap for developing leaders. Bryan Bennett defines leadership as a process rather than a position, with leaders being both “born and made”. He relates leadership to sports and makes a strong parallel to professional athletes who must train themselves to become even better.

The healthcare industry is facing dynamic change and sorely needs dynamic leaders to facilitate transformation. To develop yourself to be that kind of leader, one needs self-assessment, mentoring and practice. Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare is an excellent tool to hone God-given leadership skills and also help “make” leaders who have aptitude and desire. Bennett prescribes a process for daily leadership exercise. I believe he has found an elixir for making all of us better leaders.

I highly recommend you read and highlight this book.  The book’s title, Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare says it all.  Get the prescription and take it soon if you want to further your career and find success as a healthcare leader.  This book is a treasure.”

“Bryan Bennett is one of those authors and leaders who is exceptionally inspiring to many of us every day. He is very gifted and persistent and visionary. In many ways his inspirational leadership and remarkable personal strengths remind me of certain other mentors and leaders I’ve had that have inspired me.  I highly recommend hearing Bryan speak and reading and following his leadership book. He is a remarkable person. The world needs more people like Bryan Bennett.”
Scott Becker, Publisher
Becker’s Hospital Review


“Hospitals are undertaking a profound digital transformation. Modernizing a system that emerged from pagers, print/fax/scan and kludgy EHRs simply cannot succeed without solid and knowledgeable leaders. In Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare, Mr. Bennett draws on his journey to becoming a leader as well as interviews with some of the most prominent executives in healthcare to map out the requisite traits, challenges, and technological trends such as analytics, EHRs and population health, that healthcare leaders and the industry needs. He also shares practicable advice for developing, living and practicing a leadership vision. Packed with lively and relatable sports analogies, Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare is a book readers will want to come back to again and again.”
Tom Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief
Healthcare IT News


Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare was just that. A prescription in best practices that early careerist and seasoned professionals could lean on in today’s shifting healthcare environment. The analogies were seamless and clearly portrayed with relatable content. From Self-Reflection to Mentoring, this book was a quick read with potent content. There were many applicable examples and a byproduct of this read spurred an internal conversation how I too could be a better leader. In a profession with many internal and external influences, it’s refreshing to have a book that pauses time just long enough to fan some flames of creatively. Well done.”
Victor Jackson, CEO
Vibra Specialty Hospital of Portland


“Healthcare leaders don’t need a prescription to get insight from Bryan Bennett’s book. His recommended innate qualities of empathy and humility provide a solid platform for self-reflection and leadership growth. Bennett encourages healthcare leaders to use stories and social media channels to increase brand awareness and trust with constituents. Practicing what he preaches, Bennett ends each chapter ends with a “Tale from the Leadership Front” which authentically illustrates the concepts discussed. My personal favorite is “Leadership Lessons from the Man with a Bow Tie.”
Michelle Kilbourne, Chair, Business Programs
Judson University


The book by Professor Bennett on healthcare leadership was a comprehensive view of the many factors that affect leaders in healthcare and their approach to problem solving from a proactive approach. He addresses many viewpoints that result in a single viewpoint. That viewpoint is that without effective leadership, you are bound to fail!  Professor Bennett’s work should be a must read for anyone aspiring towards leadership in a healthcare position. I fully recommend this read.
Gary Richberg, Administrator

Professor Bennett does an excellent job providing the reader with deep healthcare leadership tactics and insight to help healthcare managers become more effective in the era of rapid change.
