   Building Leadership for Health        

Cambridge International Health Leaders' Programme

Sandra Dawson of Judge Business School,  Cambridge University is very pleased to participate in this initiative by providing wider access to the materials and insights which were developed by the tutors and delegates on our  International Health Leaders Programme which ran for 10 years from 1997-2007. We learnt so much from our participants and from working together we are very pleased to share this knowledge as best we may. May I extend my thanks to Graham and all those who  supported and contributed to the course over the years and in particular to Pam Garside and Jim Rice the co founders of the programme.  

Professor Dame Sandra Dawson is KPMG Professor of Management at Judge Business School and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.

Note from Graham Lister


Sandra and I have been friends since we were both at the Industrial Sociology Unit of Imperial College and she has been a major influence on my understanding of leadership and management. I recommend her book "Analysing Organisations" as an introduction to anyone interested in leadership. As a Fellow of the Judge Business School, I was pleased to contribute to the CIHLP and to studies of health policy supported by the Nuffield Trust, including "Engaging with care" available here.

Permission to share this material through Building Leadership for Health, was given some years ago and these materials are now made available online thanks to the authors. I have cheated a little as one of the items in the Case Studies and Insights section was actually passed to me by Dr Tedros Ghebreysus at a seminar in Dublin again I thank him for letting us share his experience (Tedros is of course now the Director General of WHO).
