Behavioral/Style Perspective to Leadership
What is needed today is an organizational culture of patient- and family-centered care. Creating a culture of patient- and family-centered care must be initiated and guided by ethical leadership. Only through the vision of ethical leadership will this change in culture be accomplished…The chief executive officer (CEO) and the board must believe that this culture change is imperative in the desire to become better in quality, safety, and satisfaction.
—Piper & Tallman, 2015, p. 63
