Building Effective Nursing Teams

I’m passionate about enabling MDTs in the NHS and Macmillan to grab a hold of nursing leadership and LEAD!

Keys to building effective nursing teams

One of the biggest challenges the NHS faces is the building of effective nursing teams. Ward teams that communicate well. Community teams that support each other. MDTs that are led with passion, clarity and purpose. Nursing teams that focus on what matters.

That’s my passion. Over the past couple of years I’ve supported teams to completely turn themselves around, from red and amber to green on the dashboard. And from squabbling and lacklustre to engaged and shining!

“Since working with Tilla the team is able to be honest about who we are and how we work. We are able to visualise our future and the impact is a sense of focus and a common goal. We’ve been nominated as most improved ward in the hospital”.

Band 6 Leadership “in a box”

Band 6 leadership is a fascinating balancing act. I think it’s one of the keys to building effective nursing teams. Most Band 6s still carry a full clinical workload as a nurse, clinical scientist, pharmacist, AHP or other role. AND they are expected to lead, and sometimes to follow. To delegate, manage workload, set and maintain standards of performance, communicate skilfully, lead authentically and still do the day job. Oh, and to set an example at all times. Often with no leadership training or support. We expect a lot from them!

I’m passionate about Band 6 leadership development and have 3 different programmes already developed. One covering the personal side of leadership, another the more technical and the third a mixture of the two. Get in touch to find out how I could support your band 6 leaders TO LEAD. 0113 217 5680.

“The Clinical Nurse Specialist Leadership programme was a wonderful, enlightening & life changing course. It gave me the confidence and self-belief to speak out in groups such as Peer Review and MDT. Your guidance & tools have equipped many of us with skills to be more understanding of past events & to help us in the present & future. I found your approach to be caring, understanding, helpful, thought provoking & humorous.”
