Leadership & Staff Programmes
Independent research into the long-term impact of our Platform programme on leadership behaviours has been undertaken in line with the national NHS Healthcare Leadership Model, which looks at how development programmes align with the ‘Nine Dimensions of Leadership Behaviour’. Using these Dimensions to research the long-term impact of the programme on leadership behaviours, delegates from three separate cohorts were selected to self–assess, firstly before undertaking the programme, and then six months after its completion.
Significant improvement in 8 of the 9 Dimensions was evident in delegates six months post-programme, notably in ‘Inspiring Shared Purpose’, ‘Sharing the Vision’ and ‘Influencing for Results’:
Spotlight has been created in response to popular demand as an impactful 2 day residential programme which supports NHS talent in getting ready to step up to leadership positions, by developing their ability to personally influence and engage so they can inspire, negotiate and command their space.
As an identity level programme, Spotlight works as it’s based on personal values, individual style and what’s important to you in your work.
The i2i programme takes leaders through a facilitated reflective and interactive development journey over a two-and-a-half-day residential experience. The development allows leaders to unlock, harness and develop their own individual and collective leadership message of change.
