What’s it about?
The programme provides participants with an intensive development experience to extend leadership confidence and skills in utilising a system change consulting and facilitation approach, when engaging in cross-organisation and system transformation.
Who is it for?
The programme is relevant to senior leaders working in transformational change and leading or supporting strategic, complex system change, including but not exclusive to senior OD/HR or transformation professionals.
"The nature of change has changed. The change we face in society in general, and in the health and care sector in particular, is now more complex than ever before. The shape and delivery mechanisms of our organisations need to continually adapt to deliver in a 21st century context. The consulting skills programme has been designed to support NHS staff who want to work with our most challenging issues to gain the skills and confidence to work more effectively. It aims to enable practitioners to ‘slow down’ and take a deeper look at how they work with change in order that we can build our capacity for change with a pool of local change agents who are ready and able to work with our most challenging issues."
Maxine Craig, Programme Facilitator

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched a new Talking Toolkit to help employers prevent work related stress.
Developed to mark National Stress Awareness Day the toolkit encourages conversations between managers and employees about the causes of work related stress. Six conversation templates have been designed to support managers and employees to talk about issues which may be causing work related stress or which could have potential to become future causes if not managed properly.
Not only does the law require employers to tackle work related stress, taking action on stress has positive benefits for an organisation including, reducing sickness absence, boosting morale and helping to improve productivity.
