Leadership Quarter

Slowing down leadership to accelerate creativity

Explore how slowing down in leadership can cultivate creativity, ensure all voices are heard and provide a space to consider the multiple ways forward. As this leadership approach may appear to sit in tension with the existing ethos to respond quickly, this event considers how NSW Health can exercise leadership creatively in this context.

Leadership Quarters connect NSW Health executives and senior leaders with subject matter experts and provide a forum for discussion and debate on leadership ideas.

Intelligence is not only the ability to reason; it is also the ability to find relevant material in memory and to deploy attention when  needed.
