Description

‘An evolutionary challenge explored in a contemporary health and care setting’

How might tribalism play out in a contemporary health and care setting and what leadership challenges does it present to that system?

What is your experience of belonging to a tribe or tribes; from school or university clubs, study groups, to sports pitches, drinking buddies, protest groups, fan groups, book clubs, the list just goes on……?

Modern humans evolved to survive as small groups of hunter-gatherers across the plains of the world and so it is inevitable that traits and characteristics that are part of our ‘human nature’ will consciously, or perhaps mostly unconsciously, play out whenever groups of humans congregate or wish to function together in some systemic way.



‘Developing leaders that can unite’

Tribalism implies the possession of a strong cultural identity that separates members of one group from the members of another group. Based on a strong sense of proximity and kinship, members of a tribe tend to possess a strong feeling of identity.

This development day will bring together clinical fellows from various clinical backgrounds together with management trainees from finance, general management, human resources, health informatics and policy & strategy perspectives, to explore how our lives, our training and our professional outlook all affect how we filter and make sense of ‘others’ and of the world around us.

Acknowledging both the complementary and conflicting elements of the health and care workforce, we will examine the leadership challenges and potential solutions that will help us to ensure that we are better enabled to lead the development of a truly inclusive culture in service of the nation’s good health.
