Today's healthcare system is fraught with change: mergers, downsizing and reorganizations create workplace environments that are challenging, uncertain and stressful.

From time to time I will invite guests to write for this blog. I am delighted that my first guest contributor is Bruce Swan, an executive coach with more than 30 years experience as a senior executive. While president and CEO of several health organizations, Bruce used a coach's approach to leadership. Bruce and I team up for the delivery of workshops and coaching services—and on these pages, of course—because different perspectives on leadership allow for more learning and better progress.
By developing coalitions in health care, you can enhance a system’s capacity to integrate services, reduce wait times and increase efficiency. For such coalitions to work, two ingredients are required:
- a common cause or purpose
- a trusting relationship among coalition members
If you were like me during the World Junior Hockey final between Canada and Russia, you were pretty confident that Canada would win after the second period. I was so certain of the victory that I took a call from a friend. She asked if it was a good time to talk and I replied, “sure, Canada is ahead 3-0. We know who’s going to win this game”.Tags: Inspiration, coaching, Legacy Leadership, Leadership development, Hockey, Positive Mental Game
My 11-year-old son is an enthusiastic hockey player. So enthusiastic that at last week’s practice, he kept shooting the puck after his coach blew the whistle.
On the way home, I asked my son what his reasons were for shooting after the whistle blew. “There’s never enough time to work on my shot,” he said. “I want to get better.” I understood his desire to improve but I asked what would happen if all of his teammates did what they wanted when they wanted during their limited ice time. Upon reflection, he replied that it would be chaos. He needed some more time to come up with more productive ways to practice his shot.Tags: Leadership development
