Matabeleland North province, Zimbabwe (2018-2020)

In Matabeleland North we worked with the 10 provincial health executives, and 7 district health executive teams. Following a high-ranking performance under the 2015 Zimbabwe Demographic and Health Survey, the Provincial Medical Director felt that in order to meet the last mile targets the health team needed a Transformative Leadership and Culture Change Program to challenge the status quo.

The main focus of mentorship was on developing transformative individual leaders and teams that are capable of influencing organizational outcomes such as organizational citizenship behaviour, organizational commitment, job satisfaction, effort, and in-role performance. We used routine meetings and supportive supervision visits as platforms to infuse transformative thinking and observe and document stories of manifestations of work culture shifts around ownership and use of data and asset-based thinking.
