One of the challenges in leading for health is the complex, adaptive nature of the system in which we are trying to affect change. This assessment is a case study analysis of leadership styles and perspectives. We want you to imagine that you are a Chief Executive Officer in a medium sized hospital (200 beds) that offers a range of services, including day procedures and general surgical. Over recent months, evidence has emerged that the hospital is not performing as intended, with conflict occurring between managers and significant staff turnover, as well as increased medical errors. Drawing on published literature, compare and contrast different styles and definitions of leadership, and how they would seek to address these kinds of problems described in the case study.
The aim of this assessment is to provide a summary and critical analysis of the literature to demonstrate current knowledge and understanding of a topic, and is to be presented in an essay format. (see for further guidance on essay writing). The assessment will be marked using the rubric provided in this document.
