About the Session

The unprecedented pace of change in healthcare organizations today is calling not only for new thinking, but also for new leadership skill sets. Taking leadership development seriously as a strategic organizational activity requires a focus beyond the development needs of individual leaders and toward the leadership needs of the entire organization. It also means developing a discipline around leadership practices, which requires a tempered enthusiasm about ideas that are “new and flashy” and a focus on maximizing proven returns on time and resources expended. This session is designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the current state-of-the-science in leadership development as well as the state-of-practice in health systems across the United States. Faculty will provide a summary of evidence-based practices as informed by the biannual review of published research conducted by the National Center for Healthcare Leadership.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand approaches to implementing and evolving leadership development programs in healthcare settings.
  • Learn how to compare your organization’s approaches to leadership development with evidence-based practices in healthcare and other industries.
