Blood, Sweat & Bricks

Blood, Sweat and Bricks: Laying Your Foundation for Effective Leadership, offers straightforward insights for navigating these challenges and helping you build the leadership skills you need to be effective.

As a healthcare and nursing leader, I have spent thousands of dollars looking for that magic book that would help me be an effective leader.  Finally, I have found exactly what I was looking for in Terrie’s book, “Blood, Sweat and Bricks:  Laying your Foundation for Effective Leadership.”  I only wish I had found it 50 years ago.   The title defines the content as she extraordinarily lays out the foundation of how to be an effective and successful leader.  She explains the foundation and reinforces it with real life experience that leaders encounter along the trajectory of life’s journey.  Each “brick” I found to be profoundly right on the mark. Now don’t waste another minute start reading.  Leadership can be your passion which will require you to never work another day in your life because your work will be joy!”
