The course is now in its third year and has a great blend of lectures, simulation exercises,practical tasks and exposure to other organisations, commercial and private sector among them.
The course exposes the participants to an eclectic and exciting mix of learning: from orienteering experiences in Scotland, to learning about emotional intelligence and how to develop their own EI, to our existing leaders sharing experiences both good and bad of their own development, to seeing how NASA develops its approach to safety and the learning we can take from that. The participants spend time in other hospitals with their peers, seeing how those other organisations develop their people and establish their strategies and values. The participants undertake a project, jointly or individually, which supports the hospital in its ongoing improvement programme.
Overall the programme has been established to develop those with potential to lead the hospital through the future challenges. It's something we are proud of!
