Cohort completes Core Leadership Programme

17 January 2019

A group of staff from Mid Essex, Southend and Basildon hospitals have successfully completed the msb Core Leadership Programme, run by the msb institute.

The programme, which took place between May 2018 and January 2019, is a bespoke leadership programme and enables staff to develop their knowledge, skills and behaviours to become effective leaders of the future.

A celebratory presentation took place on Thursday 10 January in the Education Centre at Southend University Hospital and participants were presented with certificates of completion by Danny Hariram, Chief People & Organisational Development Director.

With the merger of Basildon, Mid Essex and Southend hospitals set to complete in 2020, this programme is a great way of bringing staff together and developing the leadership skills that will take the newly merged organisation forward.

Christine Pearcy, leadership and talent consultant, msb institute, said: "Participants had the opportunity to work on real time projects with expert support. Each participant is supported to achieve their individual objectives."

As part of the programme, staff attended 6 workshops, committed to 75 hours of independent learning per month and worked on an individual service improvement project. Workshops covered topics such as understanding yourself as a leader; connecting services and systems leadership; and understanding how to influence and manage change.

Feedback from participants included:

"The programme has enabled me to meet staff from across sites and learn from others"

"Now I have a fundamental understanding of how other trusts operate"

"The programme allowed me to reflect on my own strengths and areas for development"

Future programmes are planned on each of the three sites during 2019. To find out more about the msb institute and the programmes it offers, please contact Christine.Pearcy@btuh.nhs.uk
