Description

The Learn to Lead Workshop is a product of the Civil Service Local North West Academy 2015. A Project Team have taken the Civil Service Leadership statement and developed a one day interactive workshop to expore and discuss how we demonstate its values.

What is the Leadership Statement? It’s a starting point for the Civil Service for the effective delivery of the Government’s Programme and ministers’ priorities, living its values and serving the public. It highlights the 3 key characteristics that civil servants have indicated they expect from their leaders, and that we expect Civil Service leaders to live up to. They are:

Inspiring – about our work and its future

  • We will show our pride in and passion for public service, communicating purpose and direction with clarity and enthusiasm
  • We will value and model professional excellence and expertise
  • We will reward innovation and initiative, ensuring we learn from what has not worked as well as what has

Confident – in our engagement

  • We will be straightforward, truthful and candid in our communications, surfacing tensions and resolving ambiguities
  • We will give clear, honest feedback, supporting our teams to succeed
  • We will be team players, and will not tolerate uncollaborative behaviour which protects silos and departmentalism

Empowering – our teams to deliver

  • We will give our teams the space and authority to deliver their clearly set objectives
  • We will be visible, approachable, and welcome challenge, however uncomfortable
  • We will champion both difference and external experience, recognising the value they bring
  • We will invest in the capabilities of our people, to be effective now and in the future

We explore these topics with a mixture of theory and real interaction with the Project Team as well as the delegates.

This session has already successfully run in Cheshire and following excellent feedback has been selected to repeat across the North West in support of the wider Discovery Sessions programme.

It’s a real chance to meet colleagues from other government departments and in some cases get involved with both the project team. Two of our last delegates were so impressed they actually offered to help in the delivery. It’s an inclusive session were we welcome views, ideas and share our experiences both good and bad and explore how the leadership statement can be used at all grades.

We are aware that Eventbrite is not compatible with some Civil Service IT Infrstructure, you can register via a personal device, but please still use your work email address so we can contact you easily.
