One of the challenges the NHS faces is growing collective leadership near the front line. That means 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 10 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!
If you’re sick of feeling overwhelmed, working in a dispirited team, firefighting and moaning about it all – exercise your leadership muscles and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! With my support you CAN set about building a great team. You can create better communication, set clear standards, hold boundaries, have tough conversations, agree your priorities and a whole lot more besides.
Band 6 and 7 leadership is a fascinating balancing act. I think it’s one of the keys to how the NHS runs. Most Band 6s still carry a full clinical workload as a nurse, clinical scientist, pharmacist or AHP. Many 7s are still clinical for part of their week. 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 little or no leadership training or support. We expect a lot from them!
