Free Leadership Development Sessions – Meeting the challenges of tomorrow

Better Health and Care in the Black Country and West Birmingham graphic

We want to make the Black Country and West Birmingham a great place to work – not only for our staff, but for the organisations and patient and public representatives that work with us across the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sectors. In support of this, an exciting leadership development programme has been launched by the Black Country and West Birmingham Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), of which Walsall CCG is a partner.

The purpose of the leadership programme is to develop learning communities where we build not only skills and knowledge but trust and understanding, which is perhaps the most important element of genuine collaborative or system leadership.

The sessions will look at developing:

  • A shared vision and narrative
  • Common vocabulary and language
  • Flexibility of skills with cross boundary working
  • An enhanced system perspective focusing on citizen engagement and outcomes
  • Cross organisational communication.

The Leadership sessions are for:

  • Clinicians and staff who do not normally access senior leadership development
  • Primary Care Network staff including Practice Managers
  • Staff from partner agencies, Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sectors
  • Public sector staff involved in or interested in integrated care delivery.

In particular, as this programme covers a number of topics which support the effective delivery of communications and engagement, we want to encourage our patient and public representatives who work for Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise organisations in Walsall to join a session and learn more about system leadership.

Where and when?

The leadership sessions will be running five times across the Black Country and West Birmingham and are free to attend. There are 30 places at each of these sessions with places allocated on a first-to-book basis. More details are provided on the booking links below.
