Book now for the new Leadership for Empowered and Healthy Communities programme for 2017/18

Posted on Monday 15th May 2017

Following the continued success of the Leadership for Empowered and Healthy Communities programme new dates for the next cohort have been announced, starting on 6 July 2017.

This innovative programme explores how leaders can grow and nurture capacity in local communities to improve health and wellbeing and ensure better outcomes for people living with long-term conditions, disabilities and older people. 

The programme is aimed at senior leaders and clinicians across health, social care and other sectors who want to be part of a movement for change.  Participants will be encouraged to think radically about the role of ‘social capital’ in health and social care and the role of public service leadership in shaping the communities that citizens need and want.

The programme involves a series of one-day workshops, action learning sets, one-to-one leadership coaching sessions, a Myers-Briggs (MBTI) analysis of personality style and a specialist 360 degree feedback diagnostic. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about best practice as well as developing the leadership skills required to embed co-production into organisations and enable strong and empowered communities to grow and flourish. 

The programme, which kicks off in July 2017, is a joint venture between Thames Valley and Wessex NHS Leadership Academy, Coalition for Collaborative Care, Skills for Care, Think Local Act Personal, ADASS and the Local Government Association. 

The New Economics Foundation’s evaluation of the  programme found:

The leadership programme was regarded in positive terms unanimously by those that attended. It was described as “excellent”, “inspirational” and perhaps most crucially, has already led to new leadership behaviours in those attending.” It also found that, “…most of those who attended the course had already begun to transform their role or services is evidence of the extent to which the course inspired.

The programme takes place in London on the following dates:

  • 6 July 2017
  • 28 September 2017
  • 9 and 10 November (residential)
  • 24 January 2018
  • 14 March 2018
