Developing Leadership Programme
Leading in times of change
The Developing Leadership Programme is designed to help you be an effective role model and bring about positive changes whilst promoting a team approach that is inclusive, vibrant and supported by continuous learning. This programme has been developed for nursing staff Level 5 or equivalent.
About this programme
Healthcare delivery is evolving and many registered nurses work in increasingly demanding roles, face competing priorities, increased expectations and shifting perceptions of the role.
This two-day programme is suited for both the NHS, independent sector and third sector organisations. This is ideal for organisations who would like to invest in a group of aspiring leaders.
On this programme you will:
- Understand the characteristics of effective leadership and how this underpins your role.
- Develop skills to positively influence those around you including colleagues, managers and the wider health and social care teams.
- Learn to identify and challenge barriers which have an impact on the safe delivery of care.
- Develop strategies for developing resilience and maintaining momentum during times of change.
Mode of Delivery
This programme is delivered over two days, which are separated by one to two weeks to encourage reflection during the programme.
