The material in this training module is adapted from the book "How Successful People Lead" by John C. Maxwell. The Drive Thru explains how true leadership works. It is not generated by your title. In fact, being named to a position is the lowest of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To be more than a boss people are required to follow, you must master the ability to inspire and invest in people. You need to build a team that produces not only results, but also future leaders.

In their seminal paper on the topic of providing effecting consultations, Goldman, Lee and Rudd (1983) said, "If physicians are not explicitly instructed in how to perform consultation, the outcome of their consultative efforts may be suboptimal" (pg. 1753-1755). This was true in 1983 and remains true today. This training module will discuss ten focused areas involved in providing effective consultation, per Goldman and colleagues. Each of the “Ten Commandments” will be reviewed in detail.
