What You Do Is Who You Are

This is book about culture and I really enjoyed it. I like books that take stories from real life and leave enough space for you to make the connections of how they apply to your own circumstances rather than some sort of self help guide.

This shares a number of stories about shifting culture (often from bottom-up) including…

  • Toussaint Louverture the leader of the Haitian revolution
  • Shaka Senghor, a prison gang leader
  • Genghis Khan and his surprisingly inclusive approach to being a mass murderer

It’s not very long, it’s very easy to read and I think there are some valuable lessons which could apply to the healthcare setting. I mean lets face it, we are in desperate need of some cultural changes within health!
