Building Unity on Difference
From my consulting and coaching conversations it's apparent that cross sector collaboration is one of the most personally demanding leadership challenges of all. The integration of health and social care is one such example.
Scottish Government's recent paper "All Hands on Deck" gives some direction to integration. It's more reflective than you might expect from a Scottish Government paper but this is a refreshing departure. The narrative is imbued with wisdom gathered from previous structural attempts to deliver the erstwhile elusive goal of seamless services. The complexity of the task ahead is well articulated and, as the title suggests, success will rest on everyone getting on board.
