Physician Executive, 37(2), 46‐50.

The article looks at the reasons behind failed leadership in the context of health care

organizations in the U.S. It provides stages of derailment of senior leadership including

the leader’s failure to be self aware of themselves and others, pride and arrogance and

missing the warning signs from feedback on their declining performance. It lists the

most common leadership shortcomings which include lack of enthusiasm, lack of clear

vision and direction and having poor judgment.

Article 2:

Hernandez, J. S. (2011). Am I demoralizing my staff? 10 questions to ask. Physician

Executive, 37(3), 60‐63.

The article focuses on the questions that all physician leaders should ask themselves to

ensure that they lead and not bring down their staff in the U.S. It states that leaders

should ask if they are autocratic, a leadership style that is ineffective in the long run in

the health care environment. It notes that leader may have a vision but if it is not clearly

spelled out and shared, it will be impossible for others to follow.

Article 3:

Merrelly, P. (2012). Effective change management: The simple truth. Management

Services, 56(2), 20‐23.

The article outlines six steps for effective change management in corporations. Topics

include research carried out by global consulting firm Towers Watson which identified

organizational changes and effective change management practices, including the role

leadership has in providing direction and inspiring employee confidence and how

communication advances understanding and increases employee motivation. Additional

information is presented on the importance of learning activities, corporate

measurement of success, and sustaining effective change management strategies.

Smet, A. D., Lavoie, J., & Hioe, E. S. (2012). Developing better change leaders. McKinsey

Quarterly, (2), 98‐104.

The article discusses the importance to business executives of strong leadership skills

when implementing significant change, and describes three successful cases of change management. In one, a director of sourcing and logistics was able to promote

interpersonal interactions among staff as she changed the firm’s sourcing system. A

European plant manager achieved his mandate to increase yields by getting out of his

office and spending more time talking with employees, in the process learning for the

first time about various areas that needed improvement. Also describes is the case of a

plant manager in France who needed the help of his workers to transfer operations to

another country.

Article 5:

Wright, B. E., Moynihan, D. P., & Pandey, S. K. (2012). Pulling the levers:

Transformational leadership, public service motivation, and mission valence.

Public Administration Review, 72(2), 206‐215.

This article contributes to our understanding of public service motivation and leadership

by investigating ways in which organizational leaders can reinforce and even augment

the potential effects of public service motivation on employees’ attraction to the

organization’s mission (mission valence). The results contribute to two research

questions. First, the findings provide new evidence on the sources of public service

motivation. The authors find that transformational leadership is an organizational factor

associated with higher public service motivation. Second, the article examines the

relationship between transformational leadership and mission valence. The authors find

that transformational leadership has an important indirect effect on mission valence

through its influence on clarifying organizational goals and fostering public service
