Leadership Espresso – Understanding the Psychology of now and the impact on self and others


About the session:

The session focuses on the psychology of now and the impact of the current context on individuals. It emphasises the power of effective communication, levels of listening and the importance of creating moments of connection during increased times of pressure, workload and secondary stressors. We explore the potential impact on self-confidence, decision making and team dynamics / behaviours with support on how to rebuild or sustain healthy team cultures through period of sustained pressure and adversity. At the heart of this virtual session is a belief that individuals need to be supported and cared for – provided with time and space to reflect, process and understand their current context so they are equipped to manage the challenges and pressures they face. Through having guided development time, we increase our ability to support others and lead successfully within a continually changing context. This session will give you the opportunity to connect with peers, share experiences and explore new tools and approaches to support yourself and your midwifery teams.
