This module will be delivered in the classroom over two days. It will offer a range of leadership skills and development to support enhanced leadership understanding and practice.

Module 6 aims:

Many clinicians have had exposure to the essential principles of management and leadership, so we intend to take a highly innovative approach to this module. This module will cover personal leadership behaviours, styles and competencies, and will map these closely to the new NHS Leadership Framework. It will incorporate personal and team motivation, and how to manage change. Included in this approach will be some personal strategies for resilience and influence for participants.

It will utilise case study and practical application, ensuring that the learning is highly contextualised and real for participants. For example – we have used (in previous deliveries), fictionalised NHS Trust and CCG case studies, utilising financial and operational pressure scenarios and posing a range of relationship-based problems for participants to solve ‘in role’.

Learning outcomes:

At the end of the module the learner will be expected to be able to:

  • Critically appraise management and leadership models in the context of personal application.

  • Demonstrate enhanced understanding of personal leadership behaviours, and how to utilise these in the workplace to best effect.

  • Understand how to manage change, ensuring personal and team resilience and effectiveness.
