Perspectives on healthcare leader and leadership development

Journal of Healthcare Leadership , 2010, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S8292
Abstract: spectives on healthcare leader and leadership development Perspectives (10266) Total Article Views Authors: Elaine S Scott Published Date July 2010 Volume 2010:2 Pages 83 - 90 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S8292 Elaine S Scott College of Nursing, Graduate Nursing Science Department, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC USA Abstract: Healthcare delivery systems are complex entities that must merge the best of administrative and clinical practices into a new model of leadership. But, despite growing recognition that healthcare organizational leaders must partner with clinical leaders to address patient safety, evidence based practice, financial sustainability, and capacity, tensions between the groups remain. Healthcare is based in large, bureaucratic entities organized in administrative hierarchies with clinical or product line silos that thwart collaboration, limit inter-disciplinary engagement, and foster mistrust. Around the world healthcare accessibility, fragmentation and affordability issues challenge healthcare systems whether they are centralized, socialized systems or free market private and public enterprises. In response to these concerns, healthcare organizations are struggling to address the ‘how’ of integrating clinician competence in patient management with the financial imperatives of modern day delivery systems. To redesign healthcare services for effectiveness and efficiency and to improve patient safety and outcomes, organizations must redefine leadership using new paradigms that promote the development and diffusion of improvements and innovations. Current research evidence shows that there is a need for not just formal administrative leadership, but also a need to develop integrated leadership processes throughout healthcare delivery systems. Shared leadership concepts framed in the context of complexity leadership theory (CLT) provides a vehicle for rethinking old definitions of leadership and for mobilizing the collective energy of healthcare organizations.
Functional Results-Oriented Healthcare Leadership: A Novel Leadership Model
Salem Said Al-Touby
Oman Medical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: This article modifies the traditional functional leadership model to accommodate contemporary needs in healthcare leadership based on two findings. First, the article argues that it is important that the ideal healthcare leadership emphasizes the outcomes of the patient care more than processes and structures used to deliver such care; and secondly, that the leadership must strive to attain effectiveness of their care provision and not merely targeting the attractive option of efficient operations. Based on these premises, the paper reviews the traditional Functional Leadership Model and the three elements that define the type of leadership an organization has namely, the tasks, the individuals, and the team. The article argues that concentrating on any one of these elements is not ideal and proposes adding a new element to the model to construct a novel Functional Result-Oriented healthcare leadership model. The recommended Functional-Results Oriented leadership model embosses the results element on top of the other three elements so that every effort on healthcare leadership is directed towards attaining excellent patient outcomes.
The Leadership Gap: Ensuring Effective Healthcare Leadership Requires Inclusion of Women at the Top  [PDF]
Kathryn J. McDonagh, Paula Bobrowski, Mary Ann Keogh Hoss, Nancy M. Paris, Margaret Schulte
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2014.32003

This paper argues that successful transformation of the healthcare system requires inclusion of women at the top. Women are missing in top leadership roles in healthcare at a time when the US healthcare system faces daunting challenges. There is a documented need for diverse leadership teams with transformational leadership skills to successfully lead organizations, yet women who comprise three fourths of the healthcare workforce are sparsely represented in board rooms and in the senior executive suite. Through a review the literature the authors explain why this leadership gap persists and recommend strategies to increase gender diversity in leadership ranks of the healthcare industry. Studies from other business sectors are also examined for application in healthcare. A lack of focus on female career development and succession planning, often based on persistent stereotypes about women leaders is a major deterrent to advancing women in top leadership positions. A compelling case is made for immediate remediation of this issue and implementing strategies to fill the leadership gap with talented women leaders. There is a demand to increase the number of women in top leadership positions in healthcare to assist in overcoming the current crises facing the industry.

The Improvement of Leadership Development in the Healthcare Sector: A Case Study in Japanese Hospitals  [PDF]
Neville Greening
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2019.82003
Abstract: The healthcare industry faces unique challenges that set it apart from other types of industries. Healthcare leaders and staff experience high environmental complexities that require a unique combination of leadership skills and knowledge. Leadership is increasingly emerging as a significant strategic business imperative for medical organizations, in their attempt to adapt to and anticipate dynamics to keep up with market trends (Wheelen, Hunger, Hoffman, & Bamford, 2017). As front-line healthcare providers, doctors, and nurses require essential leadership and managerial skills to carry out their duties efficiently. Harden & Laidlaw (2017) postulate that effective communication in the healthcare sector is an essential tool for providing all stakeholders with clarity and satisfaction, while ineffective communication can lead to patient dissatisfaction, confusion, anxiety, or illness. The contemplated research examines the above through an analysis of leadership development and performance management in the healthcare sector. The primary objective of this research is to address the core competencies that a healthcare leader should develop and to build a new model or framework for leadership development in the Japanese healthcare industry.
Leadership insights of the Chinese military classics: for physician leaders and healthcare administrators

Journal of Healthcare Leadership , 2010, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S7866
Abstract: dership insights of the Chinese military classics: for physician leaders and healthcare administrators Commentary (3288) Total Article Views Authors: Robert W Enzenauer Published Date April 2010 Volume 2010:2 Pages 1 - 9 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S7866 Robert W Enzenauer Dept of Ophthalmology, UC Health Science Center, Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute Aurora, Co, USA Abstract: Leadership requires an understanding of human nature. Many popular books have been written describing the leadership principles of Biblical figures, athletes, military commanders, and even fictional heroes. Many of the contemporary authors who describe the traits, attributes, and actions that typify successful leaders can find that virtually all of the current leadership philosophy was recognized thousands of years ago. Trite sayings from Chinese military classics often find their way into after-dinner fortune cookies in many American Chinese restaurants. However, the lessons from the Chinese military classics should not be under-estimated and certainly should not be trivialized. Leaders at all levels of healthcare management can learn timeless lessons, spanning three millennia, from the wisdom of ancient Chinese military writings.
