Leadership for Healthcare

Overview


It is vital for healthcare leaders to have a clear sense of which leadership ideas and practices are rooted in sound theory and convincing evidence, and which are more speculative. This book provides a coherent set of six lenses through which to scrutinise the leadership literature relevant to healthcare - leadership concepts, characteristics, contexts, challenges, capabilities and consequences. It offers a view of leadership beyond the traditional focus on the individual, and argues instead that leadership has ...

Overview


It is vital for healthcare leaders to have a clear sense of which leadership ideas and practices are rooted in sound theory and convincing evidence, and which are more speculative. This book provides a coherent set of six lenses through which to scrutinise the leadership literature relevant to healthcare - leadership concepts, characteristics, contexts, challenges, capabilities and consequences. It offers a view of leadership beyond the traditional focus on the individual, and argues instead that leadership has to be understood and developed as a complex set of practices by many people within specific organisational and inter-organisational contexts and cultures.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Hartley and Benington's Leadership for healthcare offers a fresh and compelling approach to understanding leadership as part of a wider frame of organizational issues. Their six-part leadership framework provides a useful means to draw down key lessons from the wider leadership literature into the healthcare setting. John Storey, Professor of Management, The Open University Business School

Never before has leadership been such an important lever for reform in health and healthcare. This important work provides a clear framework to understand healthcare leadership. It is also sensibly grounded in the complex adaptive system of delivering health and healthcare. This work is a refreshing departure from many other simplistic approaches which see leadership merely as a response to context rather than a complex dynamic process. Dame Yve Buckland, Chair, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement

What makes this book most useful is the relevance to the current healthcare landscape. Sections on collaborative leadership, mergers, linking leadership to outcomes and importantly public value, will all be essential reading for NHS leaders. Phil Kenmore in Health Service Journal
