Leadership Development Practices
The challenge of health sector leaders is to make sense of multiple and complex developments and craft a course through which their organisations can thrive and improve both clinical outcomes and satisfaction for patients, providers, and other stakeholders. Having insight and understanding about the context and the organisation and well-honed leadership skills will be essential. Leadership development is able to address this taking account of the many variants of leadership and leadership styles in health, building on the strengths of individual leaders and applying a range of techniques to deal with challenges that the individual leader may face. Applications include formal development programmes, coaching and mentoring, and professional development assignments.
