    Had just finished Sarah’s book “Flip Side of Failing” and immediately picked up this one. I’m not in healthcare but the lessons and ideas in this book were still totally applicable. This is great for anyone who is feeling burned out in their work for any reason, but is especially timely given the ongoing COVID crisis. The ROCK principles were easy to tie in to my own work practices. Highly recommend.

    Unfortunately, dealing with COVID has not come with a road map. Consequently, leaders coping with this crisis are experiencing extreme pressure. Sarah masterfully brings her experience from working in health care and provides insightful strategies for leaders that are both easy to remember and to apply. This book will help a lot of people, especially leaders who impact essential workers on the front lines in healthcare.

    I loved this book as a reader. Easy read. Easy to execute strategies. As an OD practitioner is healthcare I know that the strategies are based in best practice. Sarah’s experience in healthcare and in coaching leaders comes through in this book. Based on an understanding of how healthcare really works and the real challenges leaders face Sarah suggests only strategies that work well. Highly recommend.

    As a healthcare leader for 26 years, I wish I had this book earlier in my career. I enjoy the tips that work and ‘What likely doesn’t work’ because it covers the stories in my head. This is a leadership book that serves.
