Leading Strategic Innovation in Health and Well-being – Cohort 4


The programme is being delivered in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ambitions of the Long-Term Plan and NHS People Plan. Throughout the pandemic, leaders have had to operate beyond their comfort zone. Leaders at all levels have risen to the challenge in what has been an unprecedented year for the NHS. We need to recognise this talent; unleash their potential and we can do this through the power of mentoring. For this to be effective, individuals need to be upskilled in the delivery of Health and wellbeing -led interventions. For example: developing their leadership capabilities who are compassionate, inclusive and distributive; to support innovation, new ways of working and sustainability; and support them in developing behaviours that enable them to deal with issues of equality, diversity and inclusion, particularly in the current context.

The purpose of these workshops is to provide an understanding of well-being and resilience at an individual level, creating collective well-being and resilience at a team level, developing a culture of positive well-being and resilience at an organisational level and creating positive strategies at the system level.

Four Micro workshops have been designed by Growth Pod to provide training on how to Lead strategic innovation in health and well-being. The focus will be on supporting holistic health through a system lens.

  1. The individual lens
  2. The team lens
  3. The organisational lens
  4. The system lens
