Event description
Join us for our first event in our ‘getting practical’ series, where we’ll explore how, as leaders, to create a shared purpose.

About this event

We know what good leadership looks like, and we got to the root of this in our digital event series together last year, but how can we actually live this in practice? Join us at our upcoming event series to delve into this question, exploring how we can implement the indicators of good leadership in our own roles in social care and health.

In our first event in this series, we are addressing how to create a shared purpose.

We know how important it is as leaders to create and continually develop shared purpose within teams and organisations. And we know how tempting it is to skim over this, to attend to the never ending, pressing task list too! What if we reframed the importance of creating a shared purpose in our work together as teams? What does it foster? What energy does it create? What opportunities really emerge? And is it worth it? At Project Lift we think so!

In this session we will welcome:

  • Jimmy Paul – Director, WEAll Scotland
  • Steve Coulson – Lead Training Consultant, Thistle Foundation
  • Sue Northrop – Director, Dementia Friendly East Lothian

Together they will help to set up the conversations we have by sharing their stories of putting shared purpose at the heart of their leadership focus, and why it matters to them. Their insights and inspirations will aide our interactive breakout sessions to get practical for ourselves, focusing on what creating shared purpose looks like in reality, sharing our experiences, and supporting each other with tips and tricks to incorporate this into our day-to-day lives as leaders. We’ll ask questions like:

  • What does being purpose-driven look like as a leader?
  • Why bother? Can we makes the impossible, possible?
  • How do we actually create and continually develop shared purpose in a team, especially when we all have unique motivations?
  • How can we stay true to our purpose, even when times are tough?

About Project Lift events

We know what good leadership looks like, and we got to the root of this in our digital event series together last year, but how can we actually live this in practice? Join us at our upcoming event series to delve into this question, exploring how we can implement the indicators of good leadership in our own roles in social care and health.

As the world of social care and health continues to change, especially driven by the pandemic, we know how important it is to continue to connect, exchange, inspire one another and grow together. The purpose of the community digital event series is to offer a different way of looking at leadership at all levels, in all roles, by working collaboratively and choosing to work compassionately, in order to help ourselves and our colleagues meet our everyday challenges.

Building on the success and findings of the 2020/21 event series, we invite you to join us for the upcoming Project Lift community events, where we’ll collectively explore how we can be practical in bringing alive our shared understanding of what indicates good leadership in social care and health.

What’s in it for me?

We know that now, more than ever, no one has time to spare. In social care and health, time is precious and workloads feel heavy. That’s why it’s so important to us that the time we have together provides us with energy, connections and practical ideas to take back to our day jobs.

What community members have told us they’ve got out of Project Lift events:

  • Connections across social care and health sector: In our last event series, 60% of attendees reported making new, or rekindling existing, connections at the events which they wouldn’t have otherwise
  • An opportunity to enhance leadership skills, sharing learning and hearing practical advice: Community members have told us that Project Lift events give the chance to reflect on own skills, better understand leadership, and highlight the behaviours behind good leadership
  • Being part of a ‘different’ sort of conversation: Community members have told us that Project Lift events are less didactic and formal than other events, providing a safe space to have open conversations and learn with others
  • Protected time for reflection: Our events are designed to be high energy, while also providing guided time and space for reflection on leadership and our own roles

Are Project Lift Community events really for me?

You might be wondering ‘Are Project Lift Community Events really for me?’. Project Lift is a community of people passionate about improving care and leadership at all levels in all roles. Project Lift Community Events are free to join and open to anyone working in the social care and health sector in Scotland. We welcome those working across the system including, but not restricted to, the NHS, Social Care, Voluntary and 3rd sectors to join us.

Why not join us at an upcoming event to see for yourself?

What have others thought?

“These events are brilliant for anyone, regardless of their leadership experience. I value so much the personal testimony of the speakers, the variety of speakers and the opportunity to discuss in small groups.

It is amazing how this event has created an environment where one can meet complete strangers and at the end of a half hour feel a connection with them. This kind of thing is so important particularly just now.”
