Highlights of the presentation as below:

Leadership is not defined by the exercise of power but the capacity to increase the sense of power among those led. The most essential work of the leader is to create more leaders - Mary Parker Follett

Key Points:
•New Zealand Health strategy emphasises the importance of being able to forge partnerships -with policy makers, managers, practitioners, patients, their families and carers, and communities. Along with partnership, other leader attributes such as collaboration, adaptability, cultural safety, a focus on equity and knowledge of population needs will be key.

•Changing power dynamics within health care are being suggested by several recent practices being considered and applied in health care locally, nationally and/or internationally.

•Collective Leadership: Advocated as a way of encouraging the responsibility of all in health care to ensure health quality and safety,
•Co-design and Co-production: Working with service users to ensure that services are designed and implemented with their needs in mind,
•Humble Inquiry: The idea that one simple way of transforming your team or organisational culture is by asking and not telling.

•We need to reflect on our own relationship with power as leaders and collectively consider the ways in which our engagement with power can better demonstrate effective leadership in health systems.
