Health Inequalities by David Clutterbuck: Courageous leadership

Virtual via Zoom.

The challenges of effective health service leadership demand a skill set that leaders have typically not been exposed to in their careers so far. More complex, constantly shifting environments require new, more flexible, more systemic ways of thinking and engaging with colleagues.  Making effective use of talent is one of the core competences of modern leadership. Today’s NHS leaders need to be both champions of diversity and role models for leveraging diversity. This series of five masterclasses aim to equip leaders with an understanding of the issues, greater self-awareness and a practical toolkit they can apply as needed. Subject expert David Clutterbuck will be facilitate these sessions and they are designed to build on the learning and application from the previous one. Relevant pre-reading and post-reading materials, including self-diagnostic tools will be provided. 

The style will be highly interactive, using chat rooms, wordclouds, panel discussions and breakouts as appropriate with evidence-based, accessible and highly practicable content – it is essential that participants are able to apply learning rapidly in their normal working practice. Participants will also have free access to the Coaching and Mentoring Resource – an online platform of practical briefings – for one year.  

Leaders of high performing teams exhibit four key characteristics: Courage, Compassion, Curiosity and Connectedness. This module explores how to develop each of these characteristics, providing an extensive toolkit for advanced listening skills, ethical awareness and managing politics.  

The module also explores key concepts of distributed leadership  — enabling team members to exercise more of the functions of leadership than has traditionally been encouraged. We explore the concept of BEAU teams (Business Evolving As Usual), which enable teams to raise radically the rate of experimentation and collective development.
