The world’s focus on healthcare and leadership has never been greater. COVID-19 has led us to place higher value on our health, and question what makes a good leader, in times of crisis and in securing our future.

The Life Sciences industry is somewhat unique, in that it has the power to influence both.

For those working in it, it is a challenging industry with high expectations. To manage a growing ageing population and continuously evolving healthcare needs, the life sciences industry needs innovative, high performing, happy and healthy leaders.

These leaders will be at the forefront of improving global healthcare, by playing their part in:

  • Accelerating and increasing getting therapies to patients
  • Identifying unmet needs
  • Reducing the burden on healthcare providers, and
  • Reducing costs

On the outside leaders may appear confident, capable and reliable. They excel at a senior level.

However, since COVID-19, many leaders in life sciences are in a tailspin, working harder than ever yet seeing a glimmer of the benefits of a more balanced approach to life. These thoughts and behaviours can lead to:

  • Ineffective decision making
  • Increased procrastination
  • Reduced productivity and efficiency
  • Strained working relationships at the top
  • Poor people management
  • Reduced confidence
  • Reduced energy or illness
  • Some will lose credibility and respect. Some will burnout.

There may be a dip in employee engagement, ineffective meetings and leadership team relationships, increased employee relations cases, absence and/or turnover.

For your organisation it’ll impact on employee engagement, wellbeing and experience; culture, employer brand and market reputation.

Ultimately, it’s impacting therapies getting to patients.

So how can you develop leaders to improve global healthcare?
