Preview Patrick Ropella's new book, The Right Hire, outlining the SMART system.

"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.

SR. Chairman, Heidrick & Struggles
