Complete leadership series – Leading in challenging times

Virtual via Zoom.

What is it? 

In healthcare, the challenges of providing increasing demands for service through the Covid-19 pandemic, the inevitable winter pressures, a rising mental health crisis, A&E capacity issues, staff sickness, budget shortfalls, remote working and increased public scrutiny are all coming together as a perfect VUCA storm.

In these unchartered waters, there can be a tendency for a leader to delineate challenges amid complexity with an aim to selectively address only the most pressing issues and enable a semblance of control but in reality, the interdependency of all these external forces requires an inclusive team approach, collaborating on different perspectives to gain a greater understanding of the situation and prioritizing progress over perfection when taking action.

In this 3½ hour workshop, we will constructively explore four models and their application with a view to gaining insights about your own situational leadership skills from a process-based and people-based view. We will identify ‘comfort zones’ and how systematic process-thinking as an approach can be useful to help move forward through situations of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. In sharing stories about your own journey, we will look at how expectations and perspectives shape our mindsets in the way we think and behave in challenges. By understanding our leadership ‘voices’, we can choose to adapt the way we communicate when faced with different ‘voices’ and get the best out of people as a change leader. Using these models back in the workplace, you, as a leader can support and nurture compassionate safe spaces for change within your own teams.
