Systems Leadership Series: Being

Virtual via Zoom.

Introducing our informative and engaging systems leadership series which builds upon the success of the complete leadership series.  As a response to the newly formed ICS’s these master classes are based on the Northwest NHS Leadership Academy’s systems leadership model of principles and behaviours and explore the move to systems thinking and working within the NHS. This series comprises of four virtual masterclasses on systems leadership (with accompanying podcasts). 

This is the first masterclass in the series and focusses on the idea of systems, the community and I. It’s a theory-based workshop that will tackle the key elements of systems leadership, taking a holistic approach with an emphasis on: 

– Creating an inclusive and diverse changemaking culture 

– Bringing together knowledge, understanding and confidence to engage in leadership behaviours in working across system and community 

– New ways of working – prioritising population health and reducing health inequalities 

– Explore the beliefs underlying your approach to leadership and change 

– Share ideas/theories about what makes system’s theories different – which will give you the confidence to lead differently 

– Insights as to why the system generates inequalities and simple approaches to address population heath and inequalities 

As Kurt Lewin said, “There is nothing so practical as a good theory”. In this session you will reflect on your theory in use and understand the core ideas that build a theory of organisations as complex adaptive social systems. These ideas will be applied to the critical issues the NHS is facing, from service redesign to population health and inequalities. 

Although the masterclasses build upon a story, they are designed to be independent of one another. Therefore you can choose to attend all four sessions ,  they are scheduled for the following dates and can be booked on individually via the links:

Workshop One: Being (12th January 2022)

Workshop Three: Leading and Visioning (9th February 2022) 

Workshop Four:  Delivering – Innovation across the Systems (23rd February 2022) 

Each workshop will be followed up with a podcast to further consolidate the learning.
