The Mission Leader Competency Model outlines personal qualifications and five competency areas that mission leaders in Catholic health care need to possess in order to successfully navigate in this important executive position. Based on the lived experiences of mission leaders and insights from their executive colleagues, trustees and sponsors, it highlights the unique skill set required of individuals charged with leading in the integration of Catholic identity into the operations of a health care ministry.
