Transformational leadership programme

Are you interested in understanding more about how power operates in organisations? Do you want to make more effective interventions? If so, our Transformational Leadership Programme is for you. This new training programme, commissioned by the NHS Institute’s Breaking Through initiative, will enhance your personal insight, political and emotional intelligence and ability to make powerful, creative interventions. You will emerge well-equipped to play a leadership role in realising the potential of a diverse NHS workforce.

There is a growing recognition that the make-up of the NHS workforce should reflect the diversity of the communities that it serves. Although up to 30 per cent of NHS employees working at lower grades come from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, this figure drops to 10 per cent at middle management level and less than 1 per cent at chief executive level.

This training, provided by the King’s Fund in partnership with the NHS Institute’s Breaking Through programme, aims to increase the diversity of the NHS workforce at director and chief executive level. In particular, it seeks to equip participants with the self-belief, personal impact and political and emotional awareness necessary for them to operate as ‘transformational leaders’ within their organisations, able to empower themselves and others to maximise their potential.

How you will learn

The training is structured into five weeks spread out over four months, and takes place in four different locations.

Upon joining the programme, you will become part of a learning community. In this community, you will be challenged to participate in an innovative, experiential approach to learning that engages your emotions and imagination as well as your intellect, thereby increasing your capacity to learn from the challenges, tensions and problems that you face at work.
