Today’s public and private care sectors are confronted by many challenges. Demand is up, as are costs and the urgency of keeping care affordable. Clients and society are ever more demanding and more new providers are entering the market. Meanwhile, technological change is accelerating as social and professional perceptions of health are changing fundamentally, to name but a few trends. This growing complexity demands innovative, real leadership.
The best of both worlds
The care sector demands leaders who can adapt to and move with the sector and its stakeholders and yet can hold on to their convictions and stay the course. Leaders who can connect talent and teams to a collective aspiration. Who can both realize change and collaborate in radically different ways, inside and outside the chain. Leaders with a passion for public value and the patient or client, while at the same time being entrepreneurial and market-oriented, willing to take risks. Who can both develop a leading vision and make concrete decisions, while trusting others and having the ability to let go. Who are both trustworthy and transparent yet visible in a more critical social arena.
