Keys to Successful Co-Leadership
In 2018, key leaders from the American Hospital Association (AHA), American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), now the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL), and the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) were joined by hospital and system chief medical officers and chief nursing officers from around the country with effective co-leadership leadership models to understand what made their leadership stand out from the crowd. Through a series of podcasts, AHA explored what it takes to develop an effective dyad partnership. Below are interviews with CMO/CNO dyads discussing how they have built successful partnerships in their organizations.

AHA, AONE, and the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) released a report, "A Model for Clinical Partnering: How Nurse and Physician Executives Use Synergy as Strategy." The report highlights lessons learned from a day of intense discussion among a group of chief medical officers and chief nursing officers from U.S. hospitals and health systems that have effective leadership models in place.
