About this Event

The increasing pressures on the health and social care system – and constantly changing legislation and policy – mean that there’s now a focus on finding and encouraging evidence-based and innovative ways of delivering care and support. The Care Act 2014 emphasises the importance of a person-centred, outcomes-focused approach that promotes individual wellbeing. This has resulted in strengths-based approaches, sometimes called asset-based approaches, rapidly being adopted across social care for adults, children and young people, and families.

Join us for this webinar where we will look at how leadership in strengths-based approaches requires a shift from the traditional paternalistic model focused on ‘fixing’ people, to getting alongside them and taking a holistic picture of their lives to identify how best outcomes can be achieved. The webinar will focus on leadership behaviours and practices and it accompanies a new SCIE report on this topic.

Among the issues discussed will be:

• Encouraging creativity and innovation

• Encouraging a positive attitude to risk - and a no blame culture

• Encouraging professional autonomy and trust the workforce.

We will highlight some great examples of this type of leadership in Wolverhampton and Leeds.
