The Systems Leadership Approach. Session 3: Leading for Impact: Understanding Systems Thinking

Virtual via MS Teams.

Everything that we do has a knock-on impact. The way we think, approach a situation, and solve an issue as system leaders constantly evolves. Systems thinking focuses on the processes and interactions that we have and the interconnection – it is squiggly. By understanding the relationships, complexities, and dynamics we’ll explore the benefits and challenges of the systems that you operate in and how to negotiate and influence with impact.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understanding systems thinking: appreciate the nuances of the system that we currently operate in, we’ll discuss system archetypes, feedback loops and types of systems mapping.
  • Influencing with Impact: identify your own natural style of influencing and how you can use this knowledge to help you enhance your leadership presence.
  • Principled negotiation: learn different ways to approach a negotiation based on the context and relationships involved. Review a practical structure for negotiation preparation and share best practice with ideas and discussion.
  • Relationships matter as a leader: by building and maintaining strong relationships, leaders can create a culture that fosters systems thinking and enables the development of effective solutions to complex problems.

Who is this session for:

These workshops are for those who want to learn and deepen their understanding of system working.  They are aimed at those who can return to their systems and positively promote and influence the benefits of working collaboratively with health and social care colleagues across your integrated care system, for the benefit of our patients and citizens.
