Room 106, Ko Awatea

Around the world, and across New Zealand, healthcare is under pressure:
- Healthcare costs need to be controlled or reduced as more services must be provided for more people;
- Outcomes need to be better, safer, and more reliable;
- Patients need faster access with less delay.
Which raises the questions: What is needed for CMDHB to be amongst the best in the world? How can we make these dramatic leaps forward? What part do I play in this work?
All of these questions have the same answer — great improvement and true excellence requires courageous leadership. Not just managers who are great leaders, but organisations in which all staff members are ready and willing to challenge the status quo, to offer new ideas, and to take bold action.
Participate in this session to hear Mike Wagner – Senior Fellow of Leadership at Ko Awatea – explain what courageous leadership is about and what you can do to have a powerful and positive impact on the lives of patients. Participants will also learn how Ko Awatea’s World Health CLIMB is being positioned to support the development of courageous leaders and stronger leadership around the world.
