At Lakeview Health, servant leadership is both a leadership philosophy and set of leadership practices. Instead of one person holding the decision-making power, we believe in sharing power. We put the needs of others first and help people develop and perform as highly as possible. Below is a chart that shows what servant leadership looks like within the Lakeview Health organization.
Senior leadership at Lakeview Health share the belief that the staff members are the experts in their specific jobs. They are the people who are most familiar with their duties and with our patients’ needs. Servant leadership means that employee feedback is welcome, suggestions encouraged, and recommendations taken seriously so that as an organization, our practices and needs of the medical & psychiatric team and clinical staff are understood and addressed. Leadership trusts our employees and listens to them. We believe that all staff members are leaders, each contributing to making a difference because they are able to identify challenges and offer solutions. When our staff is empowered to make day-to-day decisions, we know our patients and families receive the best care possible.
