If you google “Relational Leadership” you will see frameworks, definitions and articles telling you “how to”. A production-oriented world, rooted in tasks, achievements and “things”, the relationship is seen as a necessity to “get the work done”. Healthcare is no different.
But what if we are focusing our efforts in the wrong order? What if the outcome was the relationship…and the by-product is the good that occurs in the world because of that relationship? The health human resource “crisis” consistently in the media is a piece of data telling us that perhaps the paradigms we operate in are not serving us well. What might be an alternate perspective that could serve us well? Come explore and deconstruct a new paradigm of considering relationships in professional situations…and see how it could impact your thinking about your work.
