Leadership and Change Management Masterclass Series: Leading Change Resilient Systems

Virtual via Zoom.

Introducing our informative and engaging Leadership and Change Management masterclass series. This series comprises of five virtual masterclasses with accompanying toolkits.

Recognising your existing experience and skills as a professional audience, the purpose of these masterclasses is to provide valuable protected time to provide you with fresh insights and equip you with tools to move your area of responsibility forward in ways that are congruent with local and wider systems, and which engage and enable your teams.

Each masterclass will provide an environment to listen and learn about effective practice and different perspectives from subject matter experts and reflect on the application and impact in your leadership.  Importantly, you will have time and space to shape and plan the changes you want to make locally.  Masterclasses will be interactive, allowing for questions, discussion and sharing of ideas and experience.

This is the first masterclass in the series and focuses on Leading Change Resilient Systems.  In a complex system such as healthcare, it’s easy to suffer paralysis of action as you wait for decisions to be made and policy to be developed.  This masterclass will help you to cut through the complexity and build your own, future-proof strategy.

The masterclass will cover:

  • Creating an ambitious vision and underpinning strategy, based on environmental analysis and PCN Business Objectives.
  • Introducing ‘Strategic Resilience’ and the contributing factors leaders can plan, implement and monitor.
  • Exploring the flexibility of leadership styles and approaches that are required to build a resilient system.

Participants will take away a Strategic Development toolkit.


Although the masterclasses are sequenced to develop leadership in the context of change, they are designed to be independent of one another. You can choose to attend all five masterclasses or pick and mix to your development need.  They are scheduled for the following dates and can be booked on individually via the links:
