Building Collective Leadership For The Future of Healthcare – NHG & TTSH Journey

Lydia Chan, Assistant Manager, Organisation Development – Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore

Healthcare institutions face challenges precipitated by demographic and economic changes, as well as technological advances. The present modus operandi is unsustainable, and a systemic reform of healthcare is necessary. But changes in healthcare delivery demand a transformation of healthcare paradigms — from a hierarchical, individualistic professional culture to a collaborative, inter-professional and adaptive one. How do we tackle a transformation of an institution with deeply entrenched beliefs and values? What is the role of formal leadership when we transform to an organization with a flattened hierarchy? And fundamentally, why do we believe that shared responsibility and accountability (as encapsulated in collective leadership) will help build innovation and organizational resilience? In this poster session, we will share our strategies, frameworks and tools to design collective leadership conversations to healthcare staff in Singapore, and the lessons learnt along the way.

Playing at Business

Chris Mackey, PhD/ABD, Doctoral Candidate – Ashford University

Applied gaming can have a direct impact on learning and development in an organization. By implementing games such as strategy board games or table top role playing games, employees can become engaged and develop necessary skills such as resource management, time management, procedural justice, and more.

Feeling Good to Think Outside the Box: A Longitudinal Team-level Study

Vincent Rousseau, PhD, Full Professor – University of Montreal

Creativity in teams may be promoted in organizations in order to gain competitive advantages. Previous studies showed that positive reactions within teams may enhance the creativity of members (e.g., Grawitch et al., 2003; Tsai et al., 2012), but the mediating processes underlying that relationship remain unclear. The present study examines the relationship between positive group affective tone and team creativity by considering the mediating role of shared leadership and information elaboration. Data were collected by observation from 78 teams of undergraduate and graduate students (370 participants) participating in a project management simulation. Using a latent change score approach that captures intrateam change, results support the hypothesized mediation model (positive group affective tone; shared leadership; information elaboration; team creativity). Taken together, these findings demonstrate that a positive affective tone within teams may enhance behavioral processes among team members, which may increase team creativity.
