Leadership - Level 4

Leadership - Level 4 


Leaders here are concerned with practice across the whole organisation/partner and national organisations.

Leadership at this level is about:

building broader sustainable and replicable partnerships across and outside traditional organisational boundaries dealing with multi-faceted organisational problems and creating innovative solutions to those problems.

Leaders may lead at a national level and be required to participate in whole systems thinking, finding new ways of working and leading transformational change.

Decisions may have significant impact on the reputation of the Board and/or Local Authority, on outcomes critical to its success and on the health and social care workforce or wider population of staff.
