A High-Impact Health Care Leadership Development Program
The pandemic is the direst public health crisis the global population has faced in recent times. However, as the world attempts to reset itself, we must acknowledge irreparable fissures created in the health care workforce that cannot be repaired with time. The trauma experienced by health care workers and a dynamic shift in the balance of power in workers’ favor have left leaders looking for answers to improve their health care organization’s resiliency when things are unsure.
Leading in Health Systems Activating Transformational Change looks to unearth those answers. Today, leaders must think and lead differently. Being an effective health care leader during and after a crisis requires you to engage stakeholders across your system and often influence people over whom you have no formal authority. You need leadership, conflict resolution, and negotiation skills to build stakeholder buy-in up, down, across, and even beyond your organization.
Unlike managers, leaders influence and guide others beyond traditional organizational boundaries. They think broadly and drive action. Strong leadership will allow you to help your team reach optimal outcomes and remain agile, while seizing opportunities and overcoming system-wide challenges to increasing productivity and value.
In this online executive education program, the faculty will draw on decades of experience of engagement with health care professionals and field research on crisis situations, including the pandemic. Through this frame, you will learn proven, pragmatic frameworks, tools, and techniques developed by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health faculty for bringing together partners with opposing points-of-view, uncovering shared interests, and forging unity of effort.
Leadership, Conflict Resolution, and Negotiation Skills in Health Care
If you, like many others, are selected for an executive position based on your clinical expertise or individual contributions, you will find leadership to be the missing specialty in your preparation. With the health care system consolidating, merging, integrating, and changing, you need focused leadership training to meet interpersonal, system, and problem-solving challenges you face as a health care leader. This executive education program will help you recognize emerging opportunities and threats, engage diverse stakeholders, allocate scarce resources, make more effective decisions, and shape change in your organization.
By intentionally connecting and leveraging diverse talents and assets, you increase the likelihood of achieving and sustaining positive outcomes. At this continuing education course, you will develop proficiency in meta-leadership and the Walk in the Woods–distinctive frameworks and practice methods for leadership and complex problem solving not found in other executive education programs.
This course will develop your ability to lead effectively in health care now – and in the face of changes to come.
