Aspiring Executive Development Programme – Session 4

Tuesday July 6th, 2021 | 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

The Aspiring Executive Development programme offers innovative and interactive development for new and aspiring directors. This programme will provide exposure to system thinking and behaviour as well as deep personal development.

The participants are most likely to be working in a single organisation, however the requirement for future leaders is to be able to work in a collaborative and systematic way which puts communities and people first and above organisational boundaries.

The programme focuses on two main areas:

Thinking – about organisations and not only functions; about a matrix and not a hierarchy; about reasons for their success, not why they can’t do it – and about systems – and what they might have to do to develop a better view of the shape of their own system.

Transitions – people typically don’t spend enough time really considering the different ‘shape’ of a new role or job.  It will be a different shape and size to their current role – sometimes very different.  What does this mean for them?  How will they be?  How can they grow into that role?  What if the role seems too big?

Aims and objectives:

  • To develop a peer network of those at similar (though not necessarily the same) career transition points
  • To create an opportunity for leaders to pause and reflect on what they have learned to date – and what this means for their future
  • To explore a range of inputs, provocations and questions relating to leadership and personal development
  • To support participants to maintain and grow their ‘line of sight’ through to health and care services in complex systems
