Summary: Please join the Unstoppable Frankie Picasso on Tuesday, April 6th at 8:00 pm est when she is joined by educator, consultant and author Dr.K. Candis Best. Dr.Best is the author of Leaving Legacies: Reflections from the Prickly Path to Leadership, an entertaining and oft moving account of her eleven year odyssey as a public health executive. Her book was recognized by USA Book News as one of the best books of 2008, and I can attest is it a worthy read!!! A former attorney, Candis joined the Health Care field as a Manager of Human Resources and her book chronicles her meteoric rise through her 11 years in Health Care. Dr. Best shares with us stories and lession in leadership she learned while managing, visioning and leading folks culminating with the highlight of that portion of her professional career where she served as the Sr. Vice-President and Executive Director (A) of the North Brooklyn Health Network, a member network of the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation. In that capacity she served as the Chief Executive Officer for a $300 million dollar healthcare network comprised of Woodhull Medical and Mental Health Center, Cumberland Diagnostic and Treatment Center and a host of clinics and school health programs. If you are interested in leaving your own Legacy and would like to do so through inspired leadership, then tonight is the show for you. You WILL want to listen to the lessons that Candis has learned through her career, so you can change, avoid or adopt those nuggests she came to understand as best practice.
