Developing strategic influence

Build alliances to achieve your organization’s objectives

Small ‘p’ politics exist in every leader’s world. This course explores practical, authentic ways for health care leaders to navigate through their interactions with various stakeholders while maintaining autonomy, integrity and sanity — and keeping an eye on the organization’s vision.

  • Learn to assess the health care environment
  • Work with matrices and networks as platforms of influence
  • Describe the nature of health care decision-making processes and influence at the local, provincial and federal levels
  • Navigate the points of entry into political environments
