The Art of the Real: How to Get the Truth, Jim Austin and Paul Shoemaker

Congratulations to Jim Austin, Brown University Executive Master in Healthcare Leadership (EMHL) who recently co-authored with Paul Shoemaker, senior fellow and former research director, Wharton’s Mack Institute, in Inc Magazine, The Art of the Real: How to Get the Truth.

The article opens with,

The internet was supposed to make us all smarter, given its limitless access to information. This is still possible in theory if you know how to avoid the traps and pitfalls cleverly arranged at times by those seeking to obscure the truth.

Austin and Shoemaker answer this question by exploring strategies for separating fact from fiction.

Commenting on the connection between this article and his EMHL class, Leadership and Marketing Skills for Healthcare Transformation, Austin shared,
