“Transforming Healthcare through Leadership Development”

When Peter Bradley became CEO of St John New Zealand in 2013, he knew he was leading a community-based organisation, at the frontline of health delivery, that needed exceptional leadership capability to build a sustainable future and implement a new, patient-centred, Integrated Business Plan.

St John New Zealand is a charity and part of the global Order of St John organisation. It has 2,200 paid staff and 8,500 volunteers, who provide ambulance assistance to almost 90 per cent of New Zealand’s population and many other services, including first-aid training, event medical services, medical alarms and youth and community programmes. More than 500,000 New Zealanders a year access its services, which are funded by a mix of government and donor support. It also operates under national legislation that sets high service delivery and compliance standards.

This combination of government and community involvement and a highly skilled professional workforce, supported by dedicated volunteers, makes managing, leading and adapting the organisation to change especially challenging.

Despite its special characteristics, St John New Zealand confronts issues common to all healthcare providers – increasing healthcare expectations and funding competition and the need for low costs, while operating in multiple locations, and timely innovation, while respecting the past.

This webinar will outline the results of that partnership between MBS-Mt Elisa and St John New Zealand, which endures in 2015, having produced together:

  • The Leadership Development Programme (LDP), delivered by MBS-Mt Eliza to more than 300 St John New Zealand managers from 2009–2013
  • An Impact Study, undertaken by MBS-Mt Eliza in 2014 to review the LDP’s effectiveness in delivering real organisational impact and to assess St John’s current and future needs
  • The co-design of two leadership development initiatives in 2015, as part of St John’s new Leadership Development Strategy

Amanda Martin said: “St John Executive Management Team was open to researching what had happened through the LDP and then exploring insights to inform strategy. The real organisational impact here has extended beyond the LDP and will support St John’s future direction”.
