What makes a great leader? How do you create lasting cultural change? How, as leaders, can we prepare our health sector for the future?
International leadership experts Dr James Reinertsen and James E. Orlikoff have consulted across the globe on how leaders can change cultures and affect lasting change, particularly in the health sector.
Healthcare leaders around the world face a daunting challenge: how to provide access to high quality care, while improving the health of populations, all within significant cost constraints.
This is not a transactional leadership problem that can be solved within current habits and beliefs, it is a transformational challenge. This transformation strains relationships, stresses staff, and surfaces deep conflicts, and meeting the challenge requires leaders to understand and use transformational leadership skills.
We at Ko Awatea were privileged to host a workshop with both Dr James Reinertsen and James E. Orlikoff on Transformational Leadership and to learn first-hand how an organisations culture is not only measurable but evolvable too.
