Clinical Leaders – Are you open to external review?
Hate managing people? Then don’t – help them manage themselves
Possibly the greatest challenge for clinicians transitioning into management is the shift in their relations with the people they work with. In healthcare, the people that make up these clinical teams are highly qualified and skilled to perform their clinical roles relatively autonomously – they know what to do without their manager telling them. So why do they need to be managed at all? The skills needed to manage highly autonomous experts doing highly complex work, are very different to those needed to manage unskilled people doing less complex work.
