The Right Hire

Mastering the Art of SMART Talent Management

Paperback, BW$19.95

Autographed / Personalized Versions

In most organizations, making the right hire means the difference between success and failure. In health care it means the difference between life and death.

The Right Hire was written examining the staffing process of a fictitious hospital system – Prestige Medical Center and is referenced as a continuous theme throughout this book.  If the right hire has great value in a hospital system, where hiring the right person (or the wrong person for that matter) can mean the difference between life and death – how valuable is the right or wrong hire in your own organization? With this in mind, Prestige Medical Center could just as easily have been any type of organization imaginable - including your own organization.

“The most important decisions that business people make are not what decisions, but who decisions.”

Jim Collins, Author of Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap…And Others Don’t

“Nothing matters more in winning than getting the right people on the field.  All the clever strategies and advanced technologies in the world are nowhere near as effective without great people to put them to work.”

Jack Welch, former Chairman of GE and Author of Winning

‘Physician heal thyself.’  This biblical mandate was never more true than today.  The biggest healthcare initiative in our country’s history is underway, but it is woefully mismanaged on many levels. Patrick Ropella’s current book, The Right Hire gives us proven principles and focused strategies to identify, attract, motivate and measure talent in any field, but especially where it is needed most - the muscle-bound world of managing the deliverance and effectiveness of healthcare and wellness. If you need relief fast, read and put into practice what’s in this book.
