Healthcare Leadership Model

The National Leadership Academy have developed the Healthcare Leadership Model to help you become a better leader in your day-to-day role, by discovering and exploring your own leadership behaviours.

Who is it for?

The Healthcare Leadership Model is useful for everyone because it describes the things you can see leaders doing at work and demonstrates how you can develop as a leader – even if you’re not in a formal leadership role.

How does it work?

The model is made up of nine leadership dimensions, which you can explore in your own time, at your own pace. You’ll find brief descriptions of each dimension – why it is important and ‘what it is not’ – so that you can fully understand it in relation to your role. Download the PDF with more information here

Once you’ve explored the dimensions, you may want to undertake the free self assessment tool, which helps you to assess your leadership behaviours and more fully understand your leadership development.  A 360 degree feedback tool is also available to help give you insight into other people’s perceptions of your leadership abilities and behaviour. Further information about the Healthcare Leadership Model can be found on the National Leadership Academy website here. 


Support from your local Leadership Academy 

We hold a register for the region of accredited feedback Facilitators, who can help you explore your 360 degree feedback. Please get in touch with us to find a Facilitator.

Support for Facilitators

We support Facilitators to keep their skills honed, and offer development sessions throughout the year, dates to be announced shortly. We also host Facilitator training regularly to meet the needs of the region in delivering 360 Feedback, see the event page linked below for further details.
