Thinking like a patient, acting like a taxpayer, behaving like an emotionally intelligent leader

THE NEW NHS England CEO, Simon Stevens, is a breath of fresh air. He is offering new perspectives on the challenge to leaders, and one key message, recognised by the Nuffield Trust, is the need for organisations to work across boundaries, and to abandon a top-down approach in favour of establishing new models of care that work locally.

This is demanding for board members – how can you get the right sort of change while devolving decisions about that change? The answer Simon Stevens offers, and he is right, is to develop “values-based leadership” to create a climate conducive to the right sort of change. This will take emotionally intelligent leaders, and a questioning and challenging board, working in the interests of the public and not within organisational silos.

And we have provided the response from the Nuffield Trust also.

The LeaderShape Faculty has worked with many boards and directors in the NHS to develop leadership and build strategies, so please get in touch on contact@leadershape.biz if you would like to discuss these issues with us.

Regards

Duncan Enright, LeaderShape.
