Sustaining a Good Team Culture Cohort 1


About the session 

This is an interactive, inclusive and practical learning burst style session to support line managers and team leads in creating, sustaining and in some cases resetting their team culture. 

NHS Team Leaders, Managers and Clinical Leads shoulder an ever-increasing burden of responsibility as they are required to actively manage an increasing acute combination of competing factors facing their teams and the services they provide: financial constraints, backlog demands, workforce shortages, staff morale, over-reliance on regulation and a centrally-driven target culture. 

This is an opportunity for individuals to access practical, easy-to-apply methods and approaches which are designed to support their teams. Providing individuals with invaluable thinking time to consider their teams current culture baseline, and the strength of the team’s foundations combined with a focus on how to support teams to move forward. 

The approach 

  • We create a psychologically safe space for people to learn and share experiences developing new and trusted connections.
  • We are agile in our delivery building trust and connection. We are able to draw on extensive professional knowledge, expertise and psychological practice to ensure that the sessions can flex to meet needs that might present on the day.
  • We offer in the moment coaching feedback, and small group working to help build confidence and ensure a participative session.
  • We use a supportive facilitating style to encourage individuals to reflect and stretch their thinking and their abilities.
  • We provide opportunity for practice and consideration of application – to ensure new approaches, tools, and techniques are explored before they leave the session

We hope participants leave the session feeling confident, able and willing to ground their learning in their current context and implementation. The focus is on the transfer of learning and its application, ensuring that all material covered in the ‘virtual’ classroom can be used the same day in the work environment. 

We run a ‘last in the room’ approach to ending each virtual learning session. Rebekah is always the last one to leave the session and invites people who may have specific issues, or team challenges, or simply didn’t feel able to speak out during the session to stay on the call.
