Systems Leadership Series: Relating and communicating

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 second masterclass in the series and focusses on embracing a collaborative culture in systemic transformation and change. Looking at working beyond boundaries, reimagining the systems in which we work.  This workshop will focus on the key elements to successful purpose-driven multi-disciplinary working with theory and practical focus on:   

– Understanding the goal   

– Understanding the Systemic issues you want to address  

– An ability to engage and align diverse stakeholders around shared goals. Maximising the potential for diversity and difference. Systems leadership can act as a means for bringing marginalised groups into the design and delivery of services.  

– Emphasis on empowering action and collaboration by a broad network of organisations. Connecting, networking and building diverse communities of shared learning and practice. Mapping, understanding different sectors and the part they play in systems leadership.    

– Understanding the systemic drivers of the issues you want to address  

– Crafting the goal   

– Engaging diverse stakeholders around shared goals. Maximising the possibilities found in diversity and difference. 

– Creating networks for learning  

Systems adapt when the context changes. We will explore what are the drivers we need to adapt to (hint: not money or workforce!) and then focus on developing the necessary relationships for change and how to co-ordinate behaviour across the system. Shared purpose is critical. Given that diversity and inclusion are fundamental processes to enable adaptation, we will learn how to use information and conflict positively. This ensures risk is dramatically reduced. 

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