Values-Based Leadership in Healthcare
Congruent Leadership Explored
Stanley's Values-Based Leadership in Healthcare proposes a bold new theory of leadership to help drive positive change in healthcare organisations.
The theory of 'Congruent Leadership' is defined and presented through a series of corporate and clinical case studies and examples, which guide the reader through the possibilities for using their own values to inform best practice. Parallels are drawn between iconic historical figures and events, to show that healthcare professionals can be courageous leaders by following their values and learning from great leaders past and present.
To aid understanding each chapter includes scenarios and reflective exercises to help readers grasp the application of theory to practice. By using an accessible frame of reference, Stanley outlines a refreshing alternative to existing theories of leadership and thoughtfully encourages practitioners to act in ethically-informed ways.
David Stanley offers another perspective on leadership which demystifies the concept and removes the notion of hierarchy, opening it up to all, not just those with a title. The writing style and examples used ensure that this book is transferable and applicable to all practical professions.
A well-presented book which introduces the reader to Congruent Leadership theory. Using an interesting narrative throughout with examples to illustrate Congruent Leadership in action. The addition of useful exercises to encourage reflective practice are particularly welcome.
