Coalitions need time and attending, but worth the effort.

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:
