Health Inequalities by David Clutterbuck: Creating high performance teams

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.  

 This module draws upon the latest research and understanding about what makes teams high performing, drawing on analysis of the highest performing teams in one of the world’s largest companies. It explores the team as a complex, adaptive system within other complex adaptive systems, using the PERILL model of team function and dysfunction — Purpose, External connections, Relationships within the team, Internal systems, Learning and Leadership. The key content includes:  

  • What is a team? A high performance team?  
  • Why most problems in teams are systemic in nature – and how a systemic approach provides more durable solutions  
  • How to build a coaching culture within a team  
  • High performing teams of teams
