Leadership Learning Groups offer you a fresh way of further developing your skills in a flexible and supportive way. Not only will you be working within a small group of other leaders in care, but you will also have access to a combination of short videos and workbooks that provide you with a flexible way of updating your skills and filling any gaps in your learning.
On completing your programme of leadership learning groups and the associated learning, you can expect to leave with:
- A clear idea of how effective leadership in care looks and the behaviours involved
- An increased level of confidence to make changes and improve your Home
- A set of tools that will enable you to get the best from your staff
- Improved listening and questioning skills that will increase your ability to communicate, engage and influence others
- Ways of effectively supporting your teams to embrace change
- A greater awareness of your personal approach to leadership
- A trusted and supportive network of peers.
We have created a five-module programme to support the Leadership Learning Groups, consisting of a series of videos and workbooks which can all be accessed on-line, allowing you to complete at a time that best suits you within the time frame of each module.
Within each module, you will be invited to attend a 2-hour ‘live’ virtual Learning Group (made up of a maximum of six people plus a facilitator) via MS Teams. Within these confidential sessions, you will come together to share and discuss some of the latest leadership learning, as well as explore the ‘real-life’ leadership challenges you are facing in your workplace. To give you time to develop your practice and implement learning in between each module, the Leadership Learning Groups will take place around three weeks apart. You will be required to complete all five modules including finishing the videos and workbooks and attending the ‘live’ virtual group sessions.
