Healthcare leaders know about change. The need to adapt - as individuals, as organizations and as an industry - is obvious. What is less apparent are the leadership skills that are most important in today's uncertain and complex environment.

Advances in technology and new standards of care, new business models, a growing population and changing demographics have propelled ongoing change in the healthcare sector. Regulation, access to care, cost pressures and legal and ethical considerations add to the complexity, as does healthcare reform.
