The LEAD SELF Domain: Who is Leading in Personal Planning? / Le domaine ÊTRE SON PROPRE LEADER : Qui dirige au niveau de la planification personnelle?

 (Le texte français suit.)

You do not have to be employed in the health sector to know that these are challenging times for anyone who works in this sector. Its leaders, in particular, are under intense pressure to be innovative, efficient, accountable and responsive. Constant change, pressure on resources and downsizing, all of these realities put intense pressure on individuals and there is certainly evidence to suggest that this pressure is taking its toll. A recent study by Duxbury, Higgins and Lyons found that “health care workers are among the most stressed, overwhelmed and burned out workers in the country”. A CIHI report notes that absenteeism is one and a half times higher in the health care sector than in all other occupations.

Time to Educate, and Maybe Certify, Health Governors / Le temps est venu de former, et possiblement, de certifier les administrateurs dans le domaine de la santé

(Le texte français suit.)  

Tom Philpott, MBA, MHA, CHE

Governance is tough. And many argue that health governance is toughest of all.

We expect much of our health governors. Board members are responsible—and ultimately accountable—for the financial oversight of their organization. But their responsibilities do not end there, by any means. Add in oversight of:
  • patient safety and quality of care,
  • risk management,
  • information technology and privacy decisions,
  • CEO and board performance,
  • talent management,
  • medical leadership,
  • community relations,
  • relations with other health organizations, such as regional health authorities,
  • organizational strategy
  • plus the responsibility of hiring, evaluating and, when necessary, terminating the CEO
You can see that the list quickly becomes exhausting.
