Power and Leadership – Community Conversation for Team Leaders



12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Power and Leadership – Community Conversation for Team Leaders

Alongside our five topic-led conversations, we are testing a new venture for Project Lift: the opportunity for you to participate in a session hosted by someone from within our Project Lift Leadership Community.

These sessions will offer space for the host to open a conversation on a leadership issue that is important to them, and for you to contribute to that conversation. With a focus on storytelling, we are providing space for personal experiences on the chosen issue.

This is very much a community-led element to our work in project lift and we are so delighted to have Glenn Carter, Speech and Language Therapy Coordinator at NHS Forth Valley, and Jan Beattie,  Allied Health Professionals Officer for Primary Care at Scottish Government, to kick us off on a conversation about power and leadership. Glenn and Jan will host a conversation with team leaders across the health, social care and voluntary sectors that focuses on using power to affect positive change as leaders.

About the Event

Glenn and Jan are  keen to host a conversation around these questions:

  • As leaders, our primary purpose is to improve outcomes for the people we serve. But does the system get in the way of us improving real outcomes for people?
  • Do the people working in the system easily let go of power and do they feel they have the permission to think radically and deliver true person-led rather than system-centred care?

We welcome team leaders, particularly those relatively new to their role, from across the health, social care and voluntary sectors to join this conversation. If you have a story or perspective to share, an idea or are looking for some inspiration from others, why not join us?  It is an informal conversation, who knows where it may lead, and what insights we may all learn together.
