Self-leadership in the Saudi Arabian healthcare sector is vital due to the ongoing transformation of this industry. However, research on self-leadership training for Saudi healthcare workers is presently limited.
A systematic literature review is performed, focusing on articles about self-leadership and the impact of factors influencing self-leadership in the Saudi Arabian health sector.
PRISMA reporting was used for this systematic review. Data was sourced from various electronic databases based on predefined selection criteria.
Nine studies met the study inclusion criteria and were reviewed further. Results showed a lack of evidence on leadership training for healthcare workers in the Saudi Arabian healthcare sector. In some studies, self-leadership was associated with emotional intelligence, education, job satisfaction, job engagement, and internalized moral skills. High levels of self-leadership positively correlated with increased performance of healthcare workers in the Saudi Arabian health sector.
Healthcare workers should have the necessary skills and strategies to develop self-leadership, thus enhancing communication competence and collaboration to achieve high performance in the health sector. Further research is needed in the Saudi Arabian healthcare sector to close the literature gap regarding self-leadership.
