How Prepared Are You to Lead?

Physicians increasingly are being asked to lead health systems and improvement efforts, so it is important that they have the necessary skills to do so. To see why and how these leadership skills matter, we propose a quick test. Below, we present three scenarios that a health leader might need to navigate. As you read these scenarios, we encourage you to reflect on whether you have a framework you could use to address the issues described, whether you have all of the necessary skills to address these issues, and whether you have a commitment and mechanism to grow and develop these skills.
