In times of accelerating change and complexity, it’s becoming apparent that we need to develop new ways of doing things – to move away from relying on problem-solving techniques and towards approaches that support others to find their own solutions, while developing a willingness to recognise and work with what we don’t know.

This willingness to balance the certainty and limitations of what we know with the curiosity and openness of humble enquiry requires a distinctive kind of leadership.

As leaders in health and social care face growing challenges, this approach will help them to develop relational (the way in which people or things are connected) capability and to step fully into their authority, developing collaborative and compassionate leadership for their organisations and communities.
