Purpose of the Program
While many health systems in the Pacific Northwest have created their own leadership programs, no individual program can model the trans-institutional skills required to lead organizations in a future where business, health care, government, and community increasingly interact. This program will not teach everything a leader needs to know, because the requisite skills 5 years from now have not yet been defined. It will teach all the capacities a leader will need to guide a learning organization.
