New Book on Problem Employees from The American Association for Physician Leadership

WASHINGTON, April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Healthcare executives must keep their problem employees in line or fire them without incurring legal consequences. The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) announces the publication of The Problem Employee: How to Manage the Employees No One Wants to Manage.  This new book presents complete, clear, how-to-do-it strategies for managing problem employees and delves into 17 of the most challenging and diabolical problem employees that healthcare leaders are likely to encounter. This is the book healthcare executives will need whether they find themselves supervising a toxic, untrustworthy, pessimistic, burned out, lazy, overworked, cliquish, or childish employee — or whether they manage a prima donna, a drama queen, a bully, a gossip, or even a slob.

A bonus chapter is included: “Managing a Star Performer,” that addresses the special challenges of managing stars.
