Leading Remotely in Primary Care

Thursday 6th May 2021, 14:00 – 15:30

Virtual Session via Zoom

Leading in primary care is a daily juggling act, balancing the needs of your patient population with PCN-wide developments, plus the day-to-day pressures of Covid-related illness, virtual consultations and staff working from home. This virtual workshop provides some protected ‘headspace’ and ‘thinking time’ for busy practice managers, primary care practitioners and other key primary care colleagues to consider: 

  • How do we keep and embed a sense of connection amongst our colleagues when we’re working remotely? 
  • How can I continue to model collaborative, inclusive leadership behaviour in the current context?  
  • What might need to be different in how I lead my teams remotely? 
  • How do I sustain myself as a leader in primary care, so I can continue to support others? 

You will be encouraged to consider thought-provoking ideas, share views, discuss issues with colleagues, reflect on your own practice, apply your learning to your own context and ask any questions you have.

Organisation Development (OD) and Primary Care

Tuesday 11th May 2021, 09:45 – 12:45

Virtual Session via Zoom

This short 3 hour ‘bite-size’ workshop has been designed for primary care colleagues to experience a speedy immersion into some of the key ideas in OD.  You will explore with others why and how understanding more about OD might provide you with more options, ideas – and even inspiration – as to how to approach some of the trickiest issues you face on a day to day basis.

As well as exploring what OD is, we’ll also work through the benefits of having an OD mindset – and different ways of looking at organisations.  You’ll will be encouraged to keep your issues as your focus – as they are where the application happens.

The Power of Coaching Techniques Programme

An introduction to coaching and skills you can use to support your Primary Care Network Development.

The programme will reflect on the rapid changes COVID has bought about the way we work and designed to equip primary care staff with the understanding, tools, and skills that using a coaching approach can bring to support your Primary Care Network (PCN) to develop and evolve.  

For PCNs, operating in the context of increasing complexity and ambition requires the ability to build relationships, listen and talk openly, to set aside preconceived ideas of best practice and truly collaborate. This, in turn, needs a leadership shift from ‘problem-solver’ to ‘coach’. Evidence tells us the development of these vital coaching skills can build confidence, develop non-clinical leadership skills and support change.  

This programme has been developed to support anyone who is working to bring about changes to support their PCN development, and is aimed at those who are relatively new to coaching or who have had some experience but little formal coaching training.
