Halland Institute - People and Organisational Development

Leadership Development

I have been working with various groups of Staff Nurses and Sister’s this month, looking at Leadership development and competencies using the National Leadership Council’s leadership framework. The course participants completed a self-assessment and then developed a Personal Development Plan based on their reflections. The people attending the development programme have been encouraged to work in groups of 3-5 people, in order to:

  • have people to hold them to account
  • be accountable to others
  • give support to each other

You are more likely to achieve your goals if you have someone to help you when support is required. Also, telling someone what you are aiming to do and by when is more likely to happen when you have someone to check in to and account for your actions. The tools we used are attached for you to use. I hope that you find them helpful. If you need a steer, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
