The aim of this study is to critically analyse and compare the different leadership styles of three leaders in healthcare. This was achieved via interviews which explored the leaders’ personal experiences working as part of a team, how they mold themselves to be an effective leader and how they integrated their own vision and goals with those of their team and their larger organization. The leaders’ strategies for developing team members and their use of critical judgment in tackling different issues within their organization is also examined and analysed.
