Leadership Development 2021/22

After the brilliant responses we got to last year’s learning interventions, we have been carefully designing a package of leadership development offers for 2021/22.

Some of the things we are bringing to you soon will be:

Introduction to Leadership & Management:

A Bitesize leadership development series, aimed at increasing specific leadership behaviours and skills, touching on 5 core aspects of being an effective leader or manager, and the important differences between the two.

1 – Leadership and Management – what is the difference?

2 – Understanding your leadership style

3 – What is inclusive leadership?

4 – Conducting courageous conversations

5 – What is systems leadership?

This is aimed at Aspiring leaders who are at the beginning of their leadership/management careers and should support them as part of our Growing the Future model within the NHS  People Plan.

After the success of 2020’s Complete Leadership Series, we have expanded our offer to include more workshops, some mini series and more topics to equip leaders and managers with useful tools and learning to bring out the best in themselves and others for  a brighter future for leadership in the NHS. This will be aimed mainly at Emerging leaders but all are welcome who wish to join us. Some topics include:
