Leadership for Empowered & Healthy Communities Programme – recruiting now! 

Following the continued success of the Leadership for Empowered and Healthy Communities programme, Think Local Act Personal, one of the Coalition’s partners, have announced dates for the next cohort.

 This innovative programme explores how leaders can grow and nurture capacity in local communities to improve health and wellbeing and ensure better outcomes for people living with long-term conditions, disabled and older people.

 The programme is open to senior leaders and clinicians across health, social care and beyond who want to be part of a movement for change.  Participants will be encouraged to think radically about the role of ‘social capital’ in health and social care and the role of public service leadership in shaping the communities that citizens need and want.

The programme involves a series of one-day workshops, action learning sets, one-to-one leadership coaching sessions, a Myers-Briggs (MBTI) analysis of personality style and a specialist 360 degree feedback diagnostic. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about best practice as well as developing the leadership skills required to embed co-production into organisations and enable strong and empowered communities to grow and flourish.

Starting in June 2014, the programme is a joint venture between Thames Valley and Wessex NHS Leadership Academy, the National Skills Academy for Social Care, Skills for Care, Think Local Act Personal, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services and the Local Government Association.  The programme was initiated in 2011 by Jo Cleary, chair of another Coalition partner – the College of Social Work, and has already run three times to much acclaim.

 The New Economics Foundation’s evaluation of the 2012 programme found, “The leadership course was regarded in positive terms unanimously by those that attended. It was described as “excellent”, “inspirational” and perhaps most crucially, has already led to new leadership behaviours in those attending….most of those who attended the course had already begun to transform their role or services is evidence of the extent to which the course inspired.”

 The dates are:

  • June 4th 2015
  • July 13th 2015
  • September 21st 2015
  • November 17th 2015
  • January 20th 2016
