  • K. Craig KentEmail author
Part of the Success in Academic Surgery book series (SIAS)


There are many recipes for successful leadership…one size does not fit all. There are dominant, colorful individuals who are spiritual leaders of their organizations. Alternatively, there are quiet and thoughtful leaders that delegate responsibility and create energy behind the scenes. And of course the leadership spectrum includes everything in between. Regardless of style, one of the most daunting but ever present challenges for any leader is changing the status quo. This chapter focuses on change management and will discuss strategies to effectively initiate a movement that can result in a major change in a culture or an organization.
