Leadership and Change in Healthcare

Prepare yourself to take on organisational change initiatives through our Leadership and Change in Healthcare program.

Founded on our evidence-based approach and experience in transforming leadership within challenging and complex healthcare environments across the Asia-Pacific region, our program focuses on analysing and tackling the dynamics of organisational change within your workplace. We engage you with the latest thinking, practical methods, strategies and frameworks you can implement immediately, to manage key stakeholder relationships and ensure sustainable results within your organisation. 

"Having a program solely focused on health meant that we could relate to the stress that we are all under, both from the clinical and fiscal perspectives, and how this impacts on leadership. I was impressed that, by the end of the week, the barrier of professional titles eroded quickly."

  • Those responsible for implementing strategic change across boundaries, including collaboration with other services or integration among departments

  • Adopt a strategic mindset to implement change through effective decision-making, managing stakeholders and innovative problem-solving
  • Deliver sustainable change, using a system lens, engaging staff and creating culture change
  • Develop your change leadership journey to a new level by building on your strengths and identifying how to create effective leadership teams
  • Ensure your change initiative 'sticks' by using global best-practice models of transformational change, which take account of multiple stakeholders, build strong relationships and leverage engagement
  • Establish strategies and goals for implementing what you have learnt in your workplace.
