Meta Leadership

Anyone who leads or manages knows that one of the most difficult barriers to overcome is coordinating people in different professions and specialties. Within organizations, people tend to work and think in their own silos. It may be a department, professional specialty or other grouping.

A special brand of leader is needed to build cross-silo connectivity. They are “meta leaders,” leaders who integrate the work of many people and areas of expertise. In health care, it’s a skill set vital to quality patient care and a key component of leadership development.

You’ll learn how to connect people, resources, information and performance of different professions and specialties. You’ll understand how, even with different agendas, health care providers can present a united front.
