While the focus here is on healthcare, the book draws on insights, theories and evidence from the leadership field in general. The analytical framework is generic while the application to healthcare is specific. This book examines those aspects of the literature where there is an evidence base for ideas and practices about leadership and aims to apply rigorous thinking to how such theories and ideas can be applied. This chapter takes a new look at leadership and introduces the Warwick Six C framework for thinking about leadership which consists of concepts, characteristics, context, challenges, capabilities and consequences. It also discusses leadership development and policy and practice implications.
