Healthcare Leadership Model

The Healthcare Leadership Model is a resource developed by the NHS Leadership Academy to help staff who work in health and care to become better leaders.

It's useful for everyone - those who have a formal leadership responsibility and those who don't, those who work in a clinical setting and those who work in other services, those who work in a small team and those who work in a large one. It is organised in a way that helps everyone to see how they can develop as a leader and applies equally to a whole variety of roles and settings that exist within health and care.

The Healthcare Leadership Model addresses nine dimensions of leadership:

  • inspiring shared purpose
  • leading with care
  • evaluating information
  • connecting our service
  • sharing the vision
  • engaging the team
  • holding to account
  • developing capability
  • influencing for results
