Description

Systems Leadership: getting change when you’re not in charge

Systems Leadership is about how you lead, how you make change happen, and how you keep it going, when you’re not in charge. So it’s about how you lead when there’s no management lever to pull, and when you need to work together with people who might have very different perspectives, priorities and sometimes even language to you. It’s a really useful tool to have in your armoury when you’re working in complex situations, looking to work in partnership, and needing to build relationships across other sectors and organisations. In other words, it’s tailor-made for people looking to improve Urgent and Emergency Care.

This Masterclass, given by Debbie Sorkin, is about Systems Leadership and how it might help you. Debbie is National Director of Systems Leadership at the Leadership Centre, a national charity housed in the Local Government Association. She leads a national Systems Leadership programme that draws together the NHS, local government, emergency services, social care, public health and other sectors. The programme, now in some 60 places around the country, has included research, leadership development for individuals and teams, and place-based support. Much of the work has involved joining up the NHS and social care, or improving aspects of population health, such as exercise levels or social isolation. In 2017, the work extended to A&E, with Debbie now responsible for a programme, commissioned by NHS England, that provides Systems Leadership support to A&E Delivery Boards in all four NHS Regions.

Debbie will draw on learning from research and practice, including the A&E programme, to introduce ideas around Systems Leadership, show how it works, and identify where it might help. This will be a practical and interactive session, with an emphasis on what works and what doesn’t, alongside opportunities for you to try out Systems Leadership approaches for yourself and reflect on how you might apply the ideas to real-time issues you’re facing.
