As President and CEO at Scripps Health, one of Americas  most prestigious health systems, Chris Van Gorder has presided over  a dramatic turnaround, catapulting Scripps from near bankruptcy to  a dominant market position. While hospitals and health systems  nationwide have laid people off or are closing their doors, Scripps  is financially healthy, has added almost 5,000 employees, and has  developed a reputation as a marquee employer, recognized year after  year by Fortune Magazine, Working Mother, the AARP,  and othersas a Best Places to Work. What are the  secrets to this remarkable story, and what can other leaders and  businesses learn from Van Gorders success as a  leader?  Van Gorder traces his track record to his background as a  California police officer, and The Frontline  Leader shares the leadership techniques learned from his  service, grounded in the philosophy of responsibility, honesty, and  public service learned as a member of the force. Police work is  about protecting the community, making it a better place, educating  citizens, developing warm and caring relationships, and ultimately  doing the right thing, not the convenient thing, so as to give  citizens someone to look up to and believe in. Businesses  who follow these same principles lay the groundwork for  lasting sucecss.     As much as companies talk about accountability and spend millions  on corporate social responsibility programs, managers  seldom understand what practical steps to take for an ethic of  service that makes accountability meaningful. The  Frontline Leader exposes readers to specific tactics and  implementation steps they can use starting today to take  responsibility, inspire others, achieve breakout results for their  organization and move up into higher positions. By understanding  and deploying these steps, readers learn that cultivating a deep  personal practice of accountability isnt just the right  thing to do but also the most effective and profitable path a  leader can take. They understand that daily practices that seem  unrelated to the running of organizations can in fact confer  surprising business advantage. Armed with these techniques, The  Frontline Leader will help anyone become a better leader.
