Leadership for Outcomes

“Leadership is the art of mobilising others to want to struggle for shared aspiration”
Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, The Leadership Challenge, Third Ed

Healthskills has been involved in developing leaders since 1993.

We promote a cadre of leadership that develops individuals for the future, and also has an immediate and positive impact on current challenges in health economies; leadership that designs and implements innovative plans to transform services responding to the current, challenging landscape.

Together with our clients, we design programmes based on the following principles:

  • We ‘begin with the end in mind’ and agree a set of tangible success outcomes directly related to service or efficiency improvements at the beginning of the programme
  • Many of our programmes are action learning based – using real time organisational challenges as vehicles for personal and group learning
  • Flexible design enables participants to make choices about their preferred learning pathway
  • High quality input from experienced facilitators who have ‘walked the talk’, who understand your business and have led transformational change themselves
  • Innovative and engaging design that accelerates learning

Healthskills’ leadership work focuses in the following areas:

  • Clinical leadership – pragmatic leadership development programmes that recognise the time constraints of clinicians and that focus on delivering tangible local change
  • Strategic leadership – we work with Boards who are addressing specific challenges such as aspiring to Foundation Trust status, social enterprise or community interest companies
  • Operational and system leadership – for leaders who are delivering clinical or organisational change: front-line clinicians; managers; service users; support teams
