Leadership for Health and Social Care Integration – Free Workshops

Readiness for Collaboration

How can I work better with my health and social care colleagues?

Integrating services across health and social care needs us all to collaborate effectively, but this can be a messy business! Our enthusiasm for progressing change is often accompanied by frustration about the difficulties of doing this.

Why is it so hard to collaborate effectively? Service transformation is about more than structure and process reorganisation. Differences in culture, approaches, roles, expectations, agendas, politics (and the rest) all make up the messiness of collaboration.

No one person or organisation has the answer, but we know that effective teams have the same things in common: trust and respect built up from developing relationships and connections. Where everyone feels safe and valued, and everyone’s voice is heard, they are much more open, ready and resilient in the face of change.

Leadership for Integration is offering free workshops on resilience and readiness for collaboration.  These are open to anyone who works in health and social care integration to improve outcomes for people who use their services.

The workshops will support you to:

–          recognise the factors that can affect your collaborative relationships

–          improve the conversations you have with your colleagues

–          use your sources of resilience to survive and thrive!

There are 40 places in each workshop, allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Click on your preferred location and date below to reserve your free place now.
