Given the strategic challenges facing hospitals today, the need for strong, effective leadership is greater than ever. Yet tighter budgets may cause leadership education initiatives to fall by the wayside. 

In today's economic climate, how does one make a business case for justifying leadership education as essential rather than optional? This white paper discusses the GE approach to connecting leadership development with business management and shows how the company's Leadership, Innovation and Growth (LIG) Program is helping healthcare organizations clarify and reach their operational goals.

The paper focuses on two leading U.S. healthcare systems -- Ochsner Health System in New Orleans and Virtua Health in New Jersey - and the experiences of their executive teams during the LIG program. Leaders from each organization talk about their goals going into the program, the effect it had on their strategic planning and tactical approaches to launching those strategies, and the return they felt they got on their investment.
