Peer support The need for affiliation Finally, charismatic leadership requires specific situational determinants.
To offer insights to help strengthen transformation efforts, we selected four sites that have been recognised as successful transformation initiatives. The Bromley by Bow Centre: Rapid Assessment, Interface and Discharge RAID is a multidisciplinary mental health service that has been transforming liaison psychiatry across the acute hospitals in Birmingham.
Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital is a purpose-built facility that opened in to transform emergency care across a large geographical area. We interviewed 42 people who were involved in leading, supporting, delivering, receiving or witnessing the changes.
Our report presents stories of transformational change drawing on their collective experiences and reflections. Two key messages emerged. First, there are groups who work tirelessly to achieve great things — the stories are a tribute to their determination, bravery and resilience.
Second, there are key considerations for health and care leaders working to achieve transformational change.
A new approach to transformational change The definition of transformational change is the emergence of an entirely new state prompted by a shift in what is considered possible or necessary which results in a profoundly different structure, culture or level of performance.
In health and care, the concept of transformational change is complicated by the context. The stories of Bromley by Bow, Birmingham, Northumbria and Buurtzorg illustrate that transformation is multi-layered, messy, fluid and emergent.
It is not merely about changing how a service operates, but also about shifting mindsets, changing relationships and re-distributing power.
There is a tension in the current system between the time needed for transformation and the sense of urgency for it to happen. Therefore, two things are key: This requires time and support to build skills, relationships and confidence a form of leadership that is collaborative and distributed, bringing together people from disparate groups to harness their collective potential.

Challenges to face Our stories show that staff working in health and care are motivated by a vision of safe care and better ways to deliver quality.
But in the face of a need to transform, there can also be a sense of inertia and preservation of the status quo. This needs further study to understand and address the underlying causes.
The nature and uses of power to ensure positive impact is important. Our stories show examples of old power held by a few, closely guarded and inaccessible colliding with new power enabled by people at a grassroots level who have agency. However, they also demonstrate how old power can enable new power.
There is a need to develop skilful leadership practices that can work across both domains. It is likely, in the short term, that a dual focus is needed by working within existing limitations while also nurturing new ways.
In the longer term, wider debate is needed about how best to propagate these efforts through the presence of a learning and supportive system that can enable and sustain great change. Our stories imply that the answers lie with communities and frontline staff.
If that is the case, there is a need to reconsider who is leading and driving current transformational change.
Opportunities and untapped potential Across our examples, transformations were sparked by people seeing and acting on local needs. The human motivation to make a difference was very powerful. More needs to be done to help people to nurture change sparks and bring about change.
Communities also displayed the power to make change: There is a need to reconsider the relationship between health and care organisations and communities and service users.
Our stories suggest that technology that makes it easier and simpler for staff to do their work to provide quality support for the people who need it is critical. Data can be a powerful tool in transformation, as can stories, experiences and relationships.Transformational leadership is defined as a leadership approach that creates valuable and positive change in followers, with the end goal of developing followers into leaders.
Leadership can be described as an important quality of a person, a vital attribute for an organisation or a key source for an effective team towards attaining success. The morality of transformational leadership has been sharply questioned, particularly by libertarians, “grass roots” theorists, and organizational development consultants.

What if all U.S. companies had taken a similarly long-term approach?
Extrapolating from the differences above, we estimate that public equity markets could have added more than $1 trillion in.
