A timely and essential book for physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students, faculty, and practitioners, as well as clinical educators, Learning to Lead in Physical Therapy provides information on identifying, developing, and demonstrating effective leadership skills for daily practice.

Drs. Jennifer Green-Wilson and Stacey Zeigler explain that in a health care field that's constantly evolving, leadership skill development must be a high priority in physical therapy education and practice. Leadership skills are critical for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants throughout the course of their careers-in an informal leadership role with patients, in collaboration and advocacy for interdisciplinary care, and in formal leadership positions as they continually adapt to new expectations.

With an evidence-based framework, the authors incorporate a workbook-style text with written prompts, activities, tools, quotes, and personal vignettes from practicing clinicians to explore concepts including:

Discovering your individual strengths, developing your leadership style, and learning to lead through mentorship and coaching
Communicating effectively, incorporating teamwork and collaboration, becoming an inclusive leader, and leading through conflict
Effecting change through leadership, ethical decision-making, and serving others

This book is easily incorporated within a single course or across multiple courses throughout a curriculum. Academic and clinical faculty and practitioners will also find this book easy to use for personal growth with its activity-based guidance through each chapter.

Included with the text are online supplemental materials for faculty use in the classroom.

Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants have the unique opportunity to be leaders at all levels-in their practices, the health care system, and their communities at large. Learning to Lead in Physical Therapy is an essential text in preparing students, faculty, and practitioners of all levels for these crucial leadership roles and responsibilities.
