Archive: Emerging Leaders 2013/14
The Emerging Leaders Network aimed to accelerate the development of emerging leaders in the region through connecting them to peers and senior colleagues across the region in the financial year 2013-14.
We did this by offering opportunities to:
- Acquire/develop leadership skills, knowledge, behaviours
- Become more knowledgeable about NHS challenges/opportunities/solutions
- Be connected to, communicate with, and supported by, a broad network of peers and senior colleagues
- Have awareness, understanding and ability to leverage difference – in culture, background, organisations, professions
Network events achieved significant attendance and positive evaluation. Clinicians and non-clinicians worked together to explore a number of topical issues – provider and commissioner development; system transformation, building and maintaining personal resilience and leading through change and adversity.
The events were supported by many senior colleagues throughout the region to whom we offer grateful thanks for their time and commitment to the network and their faith in the talent development of our new and emerging leaders.
The Emerging Leaders Network had around 240 members who together attended over a dozen events.
In addition we supported 15 QIPP service improvement projects and held a series of stakeholder engagement workshops. You can read a copy of the evaluation report for the first year of the Emerging Leaders Network and a short summary of highlights Emerging Leaders Highlights 2012-13 below.
Vanguard-Paired Learning Programme
Emerging Leaders sponsored and supported participation on Vanguard, organised and delivered in collaboration with the Institute for Innovation and Improvement who designed and delivered the ‘NHS Vanguard Programme’ elements.
Our experience of Emerging Leaders suggested that through the addition of ‘paired learning’ we could strengthen relationships and networks between clinicians and mangers in the Region and to build leadership skills for service improvement. This integration with the ‘Paired Learning’ focus was unique to the Yorkshire and Humber programme
The Paired Learning programme was commissioned within the overall frame of the Emerging Leaders initiative under the sponsorship of Chris Bain, Chief Executive, Rotherham & Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust David Wilkinson, Postgraduate Dean, Yorkshire and Humber Deanery.
Vanguard ran successfully in 2011/12, with six participants from Yorkshire and the Humber involved and in 2012/13 a further 22 participants successfully passed the programme. You can read a copy here of the evaluation of the 2012/12 programme.
