We are in a moment where all members of the health care workforce, not just those who have the formal label of “leader,” can and must lead in new ways to ensure all communities can thrive together.

This new guide describes how all health care workers can act as leaders to ensure all people reach their full potential. It introduces the concept of stewardship and the Vital Conditions for Well-Being and outlines specific practices and strategies for healthcare systems.
