About this event

“One of the most beautiful gifts in the world is the gift of encouragement. When someone encourages you, that person helps you over a threshold you might otherwise never have crossed on your own”. John O’Donohue

Our ambition at project lift is to help everyone in Health, Social Work and Social Care to explore and live their leadership potential. We believe in enhancing and growing leadership at all levels, and you’ve told us this matters to you too.

Join us for what will be a rewarding conversation with leaders from different parts of Health and Social Care, where we will all consider:

What are the different kinds of leadership; how might you recognise and reach your own leadership potential and in doing so, inspire others to do the same?

Sometimes it takes the encouragement or feedback from someone we value: a colleague, a line manager, a family member, a friend; to help us begin to truly see and value our own contribution and capability. Perhaps you have been inspired to follow the example of someone else and take a risk, speak up or try something new, and are glad you did. How can you build on that experience? How might we remember to give ourselves the space, encouragement and feedback, to support ourselves to reach our potential?

For this event, we are delighted to welcome a small group of leaders from different parts of Health and Social Care in Scotland. They have a wide range of backgrounds and skills, and all met and connected as part of cohort 3 of Project Lift’s leadership cubed development offering. Each of them has a perspective on why this matters for them and why it matters for us all.

Our speakers will share their own stories of the impact of giving and receiving support, encouragement and inspiration over the years and the effect it’s gone on to have on their leadership journey. They will also tell us how they encourage others around them to see and act on their own leadership potential and will be keen to explore this alongside us.

We look forward to introducing you to:

  • Helena Jackson – Territorial Board Sponsorship and Ministerial Support, Directorate for Performance and Delivery, Health and Social Care, Scottish Government
  • Jenny Wilson, Interim Nurse Director, NHS Ayrshire and Arran
  • Sarah Horan - Director of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals – NHS Borders
  • Scott Heald – Director of Data Driven Innovation, Public Health Scotland
  • Jan Beattie - AHP Professional Advisor, Primary Care; Scottish Government

Together we will explore questions such as:

  • When did someone recognise your potential? What impact did it have on you, how did you feel and what was the outcome?
  • How can we better support ourselves and others to recognise and realise their leadership potential?
