At UMC Utrecht we want to continue professionalizing leadership and stimulate cooperation within our organization. With the Connecting Leaders leadership program, we facilitate our leaders to work on the development of desired leadership competencies aligned with the different phases of their leadership career (Onboarding, Professional, and Advanced).
In 2022, a total of 271 leaders started or finished the Connecting Leaders program. These include 87 leaders for the Onboarding program, 56 for the Professional program, and 128 for the Advanced program. The leadership programs receive positive feedback and are regularly evaluated and updated in collaboration with various training agencies.
A new addition in 2022 was the “360° feedback” component. We offer each leader once every four years a “360° feedback” as part of their leadership development.
And, after a successful pilot of the "Influencing without formal authority" training for functional leaders in 2021, we extended the pilot for three groups in 2022. In total, 62 leaders participated in this pilot training in 2022. Finally, in 2022 we translated our vision of leadership and leadership competencies into leadership dimensions, which give a deeper meaning to the pillars that leaders are responsible for within UMC Utrecht.
