The Power of a Strong Leader and Why it Matters More than Ever Before


Today on “Together, We Heal,” we’re going to discuss, The Power of a Strong Leader and Why it Matters More than Ever Before.

In our previous episodes, we’ve talked about addressing disaster fatigue, building resiliency, and implementing strategic staffing techniques to help your hospital and health systems recover from COVID-19 in 2021. At the helm of this is the guidance of strong leadership. As your clinical teams charge through this next phase of the pandemic and continue the journey in their heroic – albeit exhausting – career, it is imperative that your existing leadership adopt key tactics for sustaining and building their long-term retention and engagement.

Restoring patient satisfaction and rebuilding trust among members of the community is vital for hospitals and health systems. Of equal importance is the need to repair the breach in hospital staff and physician satisfaction and trust, while acknowledging that this may look different than before the pandemic started.

The burden falls on business and clinical leadership to drive change. Leaders must come together to assess the damage, determine the steps needed to make the repairs, and implement the required changes to build resilience in the organization. This will ensure that the next time a traumatic event occurs, hospitals will be better prepared to deal with the fallout.
