MHA/542 Leading With Authenticity in the Healthcare Sector  is requiring its students to locate a book on leadership and then has questions it is applying to the selected book. If a request comes in for a leadership book or textbook, you may want to advise the student to select a book that can apply to the questions listed below. You also may want to provide steps on narrowing the book to leadership in health care.
