Healthy Leadership in Healthcare: The Pope Francis Formula
|Authors||Dr. Erny Gillen|
Just as an unhealthy lifestyle can lead to disease, so too can a poorly managed hospital lead to unhealthy outcomes. Leading a life and leading a hospital both have practical consequences and carry moral weight. Healthy Leadership gets to the heart of ethical leadership in healthcare management and describes a style of leadership that fosters healthy outcomes for hospitals, physicians, nurses, and patients. Distinguished ethicist, Dr. Erny Gillen, draws upon his extensive practical experience in healthcare systems, as well as his years of research and teaching, to develop a multi-faceted yet compact leadership formula. Based upon Pope Francis’ surprisingly open and successful leadership style and his writings, Dr. Gillen outlines an approach that encourages movement and healthy change throughout the field of healthcare. This insightful adaptation and application of Francis’ management style to leadership in healthcare is a notable contribution that deserves serious consideration.
