Primary Care Masterclass: Emotions Matter – Riding the Coronacoaster

About this session:

We are living through a pandemic that most of us could never have imagined. Many of us are not in the best emotional shape. Emotions matter for health and wellbeing – how we feel influences our bodies, including physical and mental health. Stress and pressure are associated with increased levels of cortisol linked to depression, cardiovascular issues and weight gain. Learning to regulate unpleasant emotions and experience more positive emotions have been shown to have health benefits including greater resilience.

What will be covered:

During the session you will:

• Gain knowledge about Barbara Fredrickson’s research in this area

• Explore the links between psychological wellbeing and physical wellbeing, productivity, engagement and resilience

• Undertake an emotional audit

• Learn how to maximise your positive emotions

• Apply tools and techniques to boost your emotional wellbeing

Listening to leaders in the South East: join the big conversation

We have launched an engagement initiative for the South East Leadership Academy, Listening to Leaders, now that we are a combined team we genuinely want to ensure the offer we create in the South East meets the needs of all of our leaders in the region.  Our intention is to start a multi-channel ‘Big Conversation’ with a range of leaders from across the South East over the coming months.

We are inviting leaders and emerging leaders from across all parts of the NHS as well as our colleagues and partners in hospices, care homes, social care and the voluntary sector, to join the big conversation and share their insights, challenges, successes and needs as leaders within the NHS and the wider care sector. Our aspiration is to synthesise a range of views which will feed into the South East Leadership Academy 21/22 business planning cycle – ensuring we act on what we hear from you.

This session is aimed at those leaders who have recently taken on their first line management responsibility or are aspiring to move into their first leadership role in the near future, for example alumni of GMTS, Edward Jenner, Mary Seacole or similar leadership development programmes.  This is an opportunity to share experiences and to build a network of peers at a similar point in their leadership journey. To book your place click here.

We will also be inviting senior leaders from across the South East system to participate in our Big Conversation to gain their perspectives and insights.

In return for your participation we hope to give you an opportunity for reflection and learning within this initiative – some welcome time to connect and network with peers and explore the unique experiences we are sharing as leaders during this unprecedented period in health and care.

Masterclass: Enhancing your impact in virtual settings

Gaining the attention of an audience and having the communicative skills to persuade people with clarity and conviction are essential skills of leadership. They are critical when we find ourselves working with others and seeking to attract people to work collaboratively with us.
An additional complication has now appeared as we have all become forced to rely – both professionally, personally and socially – on platforms such as Zoom and MS Teams over recent months. They have been invaluable in helping us all to stay connected – and, after years of discussion about the future of telemedicine, we have seen a significant increase in e-consultations in Primary Care.

This event will explore the issue of voice and presence in all communication contexts – including, of course, the virtual spaces in which we find ourselves more and more at this time – by helping those taking part to appreciate how to transcend the barriers to effective exchange. Additionally, it will offer insights into how to use these platforms more effectively in terms of getting the most from them and getting your messages across.

What will be covered

During this masterclass, we will:

  1. Learn easy to use tools and techniques to ensure that our voice and presence is confident, convincing and persuasive, both in person and online.
  2. Look at the basics in respect to managing nerves before and during online speaking so that our message is properly heard and expressed in a way that supports us to engage with others.
  3. Appreciate body language and how to appear your best most engaged and relaxed self, both in person and – increasingly – on screen.
  4. Explore voice and how to sound credible, confident and clear, both in person and in a virtual setting, in order to express thoughts, ideas and proposals in a way to which people can comfortably relate.

The facilitator will use her extensive experience and rich expertise to explore the contrasts that exist between the sort of business communication to which we are most used and the ways in which we are working with and alongside people at this time. She will also introduce the Five Power Tools that she promotes for effectiveness in terms of voice and presence, each considered in light of the range of contexts in which we find ourselves.

This masterclass will be delivered virtually via Zoom.
