Growing complexity demands true leadership

Today's care sector is all about challenges and change

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. In addition, the Covid-19 pandemic still has major consequences and its effects will be felt for a long time to come. These are some of the trends and developments which illustrate that growing complexity demands innovative, true 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.

Leaders are needed who can both realise change and collaborate in radically different ways, inside and outside the chain. 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.
