New for leaders this week…

We are inviting all leaders to join us for a short conversation about your learning and development needs and shaping our leadership strategy. 
 

Leaders conversations
As we look forward to the year ahead, we want to make sure our leadership development offer is meeting your needs. We would like to hear voices as possible to help inform our strategy, and invite you to attend a leaders conversation on either;
21 April, 9.30am to 11.00am
27 April, 2.30pm to 4.00pm

28 April, 2.30pm to 4.00pm

Please contact the team on dchst.leadingforimprovement@nhs.net to book your place on a session. If you are not able to attend, we still want to hear your opinions on our learning courses and programmes, and what you would like to see going forward. Please take 5 minutes to complete our quick questionnaire, by clicking here.

 

Aspiring to Be – New Cohort
We will be launching our Aspiring to Be (A2B) New Leaders Programme in the coming weeks. The application process will soon be open to all staff who currently do not lead people but aspire to do so. All applicants will need agreement from their line manager and their line manager’s manager, confirming that they have the potential to lead others.

If you are interested you must submit the A2B application form, countersigned by your manager and their manager. All applications will be considered by the talent panel and suitable candidates will be put through to the next stage of assessment. This will include an interview and a 360 review.

Interviews will take place on 28, 29 and 30 June with the outcomes communicated back to the applicant and their line manager in the week commencing 12 July. Successful applicants will start the development programme on Monday 13 September 2021.

The programme will last for 12 months and will equip aspirant leaders with the knowledge they need to be a leader. It will include workshops, coaching sessions and work-shadowing over a total of about 15 days throughout the year.

Unsuccessful applicants will receive feedback from the interview panel and have support to create their Personal Development Plan.

To apply, please lookout for the application form in next week’s communications. In the meantime, please do check out our A2B page on MyDCHS by clicking here.
