About the Programme

The HSJ award nominated Supporting Transformation Programme is returning for 19/20, with cohorts taking place in Nottingham, Derby and Leicester.

The programme will help develop existing skills, behaviours and knowledge to support transformation at every level of the healthcare system. It will focus on:

  • Building shared understanding of issues across the region, and the reality of leading complex change
  • Building individual resilience and personal effectiveness
  • Creating shared purpose in your team
  • Building strong relationships with communities, partners and other stakeholders at the macro level
  • Building influencing and negotiation skills to drive change at the micro level
  • Innovation and creative thinking – the way we’ve worked before may not apply in the future; how do we really embrace doing things differently?

The programme offers an intensive development opportunity across 5 days. This will enable participants to build strong and lasting relationships within their cohort, but also to share learning and gain wider understanding from across their system.

Outcomes for each of the learning days: 

There will also be opportunities for peer coaching across the five programme days 

Day 1. You as a leader

  • Self -awareness and identity 
  • Understanding of psychological aspect of transitions 
  • Your values and leadership narrative

Day 2. Leading others

  • Resilient Leadership 

Day 3. Change

Day 5. Sustainability

Please note that aspects of the programme will be adapted based on the needs of individual cohorts.
