Leadership at All Levels & Solving Everyday Challenges in Health and Care – Project Lift Community Event

We ran a series of ‘mini sessions’ across Glasgow for the second Project Lift Community event of 2020.
The event was about leadership at all levels and solving everyday challenges in health and care.  We wanted to make it easier for you to join an event during your work day, so the one hour sessions were held across the city:

  •  New Stobhill Hospital
  • William Quarrier Epilepsy Centre (x2)
  • Glasgow Caledonian University

Leadership at all levels’ was the second Project Lift Community Event in 2020. This topic is around understanding what leadership actually means in our contexts and how it can improve what we do and how we feel about our work. We focused on sharing and learning from others in a similar
position about how certain types of ‘leadership’ come from within, not from our job titles.
The aim of this session was to:

  • Explore our perception of ‘what leadership is’ in health and social care across levels;
  • Learn from others, and connect and share knowledge about how we approach leadership in our role;
  •  Provide space to take on practical leadership resources and skills to take away and apply in our roles.

We began each session by hearing an opening perspective from speakers across the health sector on what leadership means to them.

In the breakfast session, we heard from Linda Davidson, Associate Director of Human Resources at NHS Forth Valley, in the lunchtime sessions, we heard from Stephanie Phillips, Director of Service Delivery at NHS 24, and in the evening session, Mags Mcguire, Executive Nurse Director at NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde kickstarted the conversation.

You can find our synthesis pack, produced by our community partners Kaleidoscope below and we hope that it offers you insights, ideas and some food for reflection.
