Productive Leader

Getting started with Productive Leader

If you work for NHS England, you can download The Productive Leader modules at no charge to work through with your team and your direct reports.  All of the modules are based on best practice.  They are not difficult or complicated to use but offer an approach that will save time and improve your productivity.  


The recommended approach to The Productive Leader is to start with the senior leadership team (chief executive, directors and their PAs).  This will result in the top team modelling new practices and behaviours and thereby building credibility for other staff.   However the programme can also be adapted to your organisational context, culture and suit the needs of other staff groups.  The ultimate goal is to spread best practice through the organisation. Please contact us if you would like to discuss how The Productive Leader can benefit your team or organisation.
