Principles and Practices for Leading Highly Effective Health Care Organizations National Taiwan University

Course Overview

Rapidly changing global environments, health care policy and competitive forces in an increasingly boundaryless health care delivery system demand transformative and visionary leaders. This course is designed to provide current and future health care executives with the intellectual frameworks, contemporary theory and applications to respond effectively to these dynamic changes. Building on concepts from psychology, sociology and the behavioral sciences, this course will prepare students to develop the capacity to develop, lead and transform health care organizations and the institutional networks that embody the health care delivery system. Contemporary theory suggests that the development of highly effective, transformative leaders emerges from a framework that combines self assessment and reflection embedded in the constructs of emotional intelligence, with theories and methods designed to provide the participants the latest thoughts associated with leading, individuals, teams, organizations and interorganizational networks.
