Abstract


Abstract: The Covid-19 pandemic has brought monumental challenges to the global health sector, exerting immense pressure on healthcare workers and highlighting the need for leadership that prioritizes resilience. Utilizing a scoping review method, this study investigated papers from the EBSCO, SAGE, PubMed, and Scopus databases, focusing on Leadership, Resilience, Healthcare, and Covid-19 as keywords. Sifting through 11 articles that met the established inclusion criteria, the study revealed four important themes: effective leadership styles, factors influencing leadership resilience, difficulties faced by health leaders during the pandemic, and strategies to strengthen leadership resilience. The findings demonstrate that inclusive and innovative leadership is crucial during crisis periods, given the mental and psychological challenges faced by healthcare workers. This study offers a new perspective in the psychological study of leadership during a crisis and emphasizes the importance of strategic revamping in leadership practices to ensure readiness for future outbreaks. The implications of this study are significant, providing a framework for health leaders to adopt a resilience-oriented approach, creating organizations that are more flexible and capable of withstanding pandemic pressures. It also implies the importance of developing policies and leadership training programs that are more focused on resilience in the future.
