South East Leadership Academy

Leadership Espresso- Our Leadership Way

About the session:

When dedicated and professional staff work to benefit the people we serve, it makes all the difference to people’s experience of the NHS. Delivering high-quality care requires high-quality workplaces that, in turn, care and support our NHS people.

We know that leaders play a pivotal part in shaping the experience of work. But what does that leadership role look like in practice? Co-created with thousands of NHS people, Our Leadership Way outlines the leadership behaviours that create the very best workplaces that enable staff to thrive and succeed.

We are testing out pilot workshop sessions to gain feedback on the approach we are planning to take on a much larger scale post-release of OLW next year. This pilot workshop gives you space to explore the leadership behaviours that make a difference.

Together, we will explore workplace cultures, Our Leadership Way and your role as a leader in shaping inclusive and compassionate environments. You will also have space to reflect and enhance leadership behaviours that are working well and discuss the behaviours you want to develop in a safe and supportive environment

Who is this session for?

Health and care service people leaders in first and mid-level roles in any professional grouping, and across all regions in the NHS.
