Leadership Learning Zone

The Leadership Learning Zone (LLZ) has been developed in the Midlands to provide organisations and individuals with a tool that will enable learning, enhance understanding and embed vital skills and knowledge that will contribute to the, physical and psychological well-being of our people and can be accessed free of charge by all NHS staff via the following link: www.leadershipnhs.uk

LLZ features a suite of 22 leadership learning modules including:

  • Coaching skills
  • Influencing stakeholders
  • Talent management
  • Time management
  • Stress management
  • Introduction to leadership
  • Understanding yourself
  • Managing people
  • Managing through change
  • Generations
  • Unconscious bias
  • Equality and diversity
  • Interview skills
  • Resilience
  • Imposter syndrome
  • Systems leadership
  • Effective communication
  • Talent management/succession planning
  • Appreciative enquiry
  • How to give feedback
  • Kindness
  • Action Learning sets

The Zone’s e-learning mode of delivery contributes to enabling attainment of mandatory training and enables the organisation to make learning available that is flexible and contemporary, at the same time releasing staff time to care. To date over 6,500 individual e-learning modules have been successfully completed by NHS staff in the region and beyond.

The system also has the ability to enable organisations to “clone” the site so it can be transposed to their existing website. This enables the functionality of the learning zone to be incorporated with existing systems so that individuals have a seamless learning experience which is branded and owned by their own organisation, rather than accessing an individual external site. As well as the primary Leadership Learning Zone portal, dedicated “cloned” portals have also been created for a number of NHS Trust organisations and higher education institutions.
