Change is the not-so-new normal in healthcare. The rapid evolution in clinical advancements, the pressures of regulatory and reimbursement changes along with the ever-present staffing challenges should cause us to regularly evaluate leadership and leadership styles.
Leadership Styles in Healthcare
Can we identify our own leadership style? Can we adapt that style so that it continues to be effective as we navigate through the changing landscape of healthcare? The first step in answering these questions is to establish your leadership style. The American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordination (AANAC) categorizes leadership styles in healthcare into five buckets. The categories are based loosely on the 2004 Northouse publications.
Organizations can thrive while embracing and supporting a variety of leadership styles, but it is important to help the next generation of leaders in our organizations develop the successful leadership style that is most appropriate for their organizations and for their individual disciplines. You can help ensure that your leaders are growing into their roles by supporting them with great tools.
