What is the programme?

This programme aims to help leaders and managers explore the challenges and opportunities of a
community-based approach to leadership. It's aimed at senior leaders and clinicians across health and social care who want to be part of a movement for change.

By taking part you’ll learn how to grow and nurture capacity in local communities to improve health and wellbeing and ensure better outcomes for people who need care and support.

You’ll be encouraged to think about the value of your community’s role in health and social care and the role of public service leadership in shaping the communities that citizens need and want.

What does the programme contain?

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.

You’ll 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. 

An inspiring programme with some great learning on offer to make a difference in a real operational sense, certainly one that is worth the time and effort. Previous participant - Cohort 3
