Best Organizations for Leadership Development
Every two years, a team of researchers update the National Leadership Survey based on the state-of-the-science in leadership development. By completing the survey, participating organizations are able to be compare their approaches to leadership develop to evidence-based practice as well as other health systems using the customized scorecard generated from survey responses.
Organizations that have exemplary approaches to leadership development are also eligible for high-profile recognition as a part of the Best Organizations for Leadership Development (BOLD) program. Since 2014, the biennial BOLD Award recognizes hospitals and health systems that are leading the field in preparing current and future generations of leaders needed to transform our health system. BOLD top-ranking and honorable mention organizations are recognized at NCHL’s Human Capital Investment Conference in November. The BOLD program will run again in 2022.
