One way of understanding system leadership is that of working beyond organisational boundaries on challenges of mutual concern that cannot be solved by any one person or institution. The system is no longer focused on operating as sole organisations and calls for a collaborative approach across a variety of new boundaries.
We recognise the complexity of these challenges upon the system and ask of leaders across the health and care system to embody future focused, inclusive leadership qualities. In response to local need, we have developed a suite of priority offers to support our North West leaders; see the highlights below or scroll down for more offers.
System Leadership Development
System Leadership Development Modules | Our System Leadership Development Centre is complemented by a suite of new System Leadership modules, which members can access either independently or as a result of the Development Centre. This is designed to complement our existing suite of senior leadership development offers.
Leading for System Change | Providing practical, place-based support to help build collaborative leadership thinking across all areas of Integrated Care Systems (ICS). The programme supports cross sector teams that are working on complex issues relating to ICS strategic priorities.
