With so many overlapping pressures facing the health and social care system, and the inequities that many groups continue to experience, kindness and compassion are qualities that can be hard to practice and sustain.As well as deepening your understanding and knowledge of leadership in the health and care system, this course will also help you develop your own practice of kind and compassionate leadership.This programme will enable you to work more effectively in the gap between your commitment and enthusiasm for change and the reality of making things happen within the constraints of your role and wider system prioritie
This module is designed to appeal to anyone with an interest in caring services in a modern, complex and demanding world. The module provides tools and insight to understand your role in relation to others, helping you achieve the best outcomes.
All workplace cultures should have a deeply held set of values that are shared by those working and living in it
Ethical leadership means that individuals behave according to a set of principles and values that are recognized by the majority as a sound basis for the common good. These include integrity, respect, trust, fairness, transparency, and honesty.
This innovative programme is designed to give you the skills and knowledge you need to attract and develop a skilled and confident workforce. It covers digital and practical skills, values based interviewing and how to have valuable conversations, as well as one-to-one support. The programme can be commissioned by local authorities. It also includes a personalised data retention report based on your pay and training metrics to provide tailored analysis, from which we can offer recommendations specific to your organisation.
A previous attendee said: “I found the programme really useful. An excellent insight about improving our online presence and being more visible. The 1:1 support was helpful in analysing our practice and explore ways forward.”
When we are motivated by compassion and wisdom, the results of our actions benefit everyone, not just our individual selves or some immediate convenience.
For leadership to be compassionate, it must also be inclusive. Compassion blurs the boundaries between self and other, promoting belonging, trust, understanding, mutual support and, by definition, inclusion (West 2021). This creates an inclusive, psychologically safe environment in which diversity in all forms is valued and team members can contribute creatively and enthusiastically to team performance.
