The Self-Discovery Day is an entry-level interactive workshop to support compassionate and inclusive leadership for all. The day provides a guided psychological approach to supporting people in increasing their self-awareness and explores emotional intelligence. The day is centred on the following areas:

  • Communicating with impact
  • Why self-awareness is important and how to build it
  • How do I respond (my emotional reactions)
  • Who am I at my best?

Research shows that the most powerful factor influencing culture is leadership. Leaders who model compassion, inclusion and dedication to improvement in all their interactions are the key to creating cultures of continuous improvement in health and care. In recognition of this, the new national Leadership Development framework Developing People – Improving Care proposes all staff should have the opportunity to explore their potential and formulate a development plan.

Target audience:

The workshop will offer an opportunity to ‘self’ explore and plan your career journey, it is aimed at clinical and non-clinical staff in band 5, 6 and 7.

This interactive workshop will give delegates the opportunity to:

  • explore their values, motivations, and preferences.
  • think about themselves in their current role, their purpose, their level of contentment, how well they think they perform.
  • how they manage their emotions when faced with particularly difficult situations or work-life challenges, what their emotional responses have been and how you might better manage those situations.
  • their career/life journey and aspirations.
  • their impact on others and how you might be perceived by others.
