Leadership, Leadership, Leadership: Two Models and an Analogy (King’s Fund / Center for Creative Leadership / Monitor / CQC / NHS TDA / NHS Networks)

Summary

The King’s Fund recently released a paper on “Developing collective leadership for health care” with the Center for Creative Leadership. This discusses the role of leadership in developing “caring cultures”, and argues for collective leadership (as opposed to top-down command-and-control structures). Collective (decentralised, “devolved”) leadership entails “distributing and allocating leadership power to wherever expertise, capability and motivation sit within organisations”. An accompanying set of results from a survey of NHS managers and clinicians was published at the same time.

This framework is intended to ensure a more consistent approach, forming the basis of their regulatory judgements.
