Primary Care Collaborative Leadership Programme (Virtual)

Posted on:

We are seeking collaboratives (collectives working on a common purpose) from primary care consisting of 3-7 members who are interested in undertaking a programme of collaborative leadership development together. Collaboratives may be multi-disciplinary, multi-practice and/or multi-agency. The key criteria for this programme is that members are working together to lead work that will improve health outcomes for their population and communities.

Programme Aims

The programme is designed to support participants to become collaborative teams of change agents delivering positive impacts for the individual, team, practice and Primary Care Network and wider partnerships. The focus is upon developing individual and collective leadership and applying learning to enhance the impact of the collaborative in engaging with its stakeholders and progressing collaborative project work.

Programme Format

  • Collaborative project focus – collaboratives will be expected to identify a specific area of work within their application for the programme. This project and its progress will form the focus for the development journey for the group.
  • Workshops – 4 x half-day online focused upon collaborative leadership and being a change agent. Workshops will be delivered by experienced facilitators and use a variety of formats including expert inputs and individual and group activities and discussion that will support participants to add to their change and leadership toolkit. Workshops will also capitalise on the potential networking and learning benefits that will arise from having potentially 5 or more collaboratives in attendance.
  • Co-Labs – 4 x half day online facilitated smaller group sessions enabling collaboratives to focus specifically upon their collaborative project. Facilitators will support groups to reflect upon and together address specific challenges encountered in their collaborative leadership journey.
  • A final evaluation/celebration event where project progress and learning are shared with the programme cohort and invited guests/sponsors. This session will be an opportunity for you to share your individual and collaborative learning and development.

 This programme will give you:

  • A individual DiSC profile highlighting your behaviours and strengths, which provides you with strategies on how to work effectively with others
  • Pragmatic tools and methods which you can use to support you to lead change and improvement
  • Individual, group and peer learning to support you on your leadership journey
  • Protected time to work in your collaborative group to move forwards with your collaborative project
  • A greater insight into yourself and others, specifically in relation to your collaborative.
