Get Started

If you work for NHS England, you can download The Productive Leader modules for free and work through them, ideally with your team and direct reports.  However The Productive Leader has been designed as a comprehensive, facilitated programme focused initially at the executive level within your organisation (executive directors and their PAs). Your sign up and commitment at this level is vital if large scale change that delivers organisational improvement is to be achieved.
To go through The Productive Leader as a facilitated programme in your organisation we recommend the following three steps:
  1. secure your chief executive as an executive sponsor to authorise the sign up of your leadership team to the programme (please see the Executive Leader Guide for more detail to the programme)
  2. identify a coordinator who can order copies of The Productive Leader modules for the entire leadership team (this can be a PA or the project manager for the programme)
  3. identify a facilitator and a project manager in your organisation to support the delivery of the programme. Please see the additional support the NHS Institute can provide in this area
Forward this page to your chief executive or leadership team or register now 
If you are interested in The Productive Leader but are not part of NHS England, please contact us.
