Relationship-centered leadership can be thought of as focused on developing a culture of high empowerment, engagement, and intrinsic motivation. This aim is quite challenging given the complexity of the our organizations and the infinite diversity and messiness of human behavior.
In this Pop-Up we will discuss three questions:
- How necessary and feasible is a set of simple rules for leaders to shape culture in their organizations?
- Have you seen examples of simple rules that have been effective?
- What do you see as the strengths and limitations of these rules?
- Would you be interested in a series of conversations to further develop responses to these questions?
As a stimulus to the conversation, Neil Baker MD will offer a brief presentation about simple rules he has developed over his 30 year career in healthcare including 24 years as a leader of clinical and quality services.
Recommended Preparation (approximately 7 – 15 minutes of listening and thinking time)
- Please reflect about the three questions in advance.
- View a three minute video about Neil’s work at: The Leadership Fractal–simple rules to shape culture.
Neil has applied this approach in multiple disciplines and roles with organizations nationally and internationally known for innovation including Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). He has been a featured speaker at IHI’s Annual Forum for the last six years. You can read more about him and explore his blogs at neilbakerconsulting.com
