An MBTI Bite-size CPD Webinar - Thursday 1st March 2018, 10:00 - 12:00
Please Note: This session is only open to the KSS Leadership Academy and Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academy MBTI Practitioners Community of Practice
Resilience is a vital quality for leaders and staff in the NHS. Faced with significant workplace pressure and an overload of information, we all need to develop and maintain positive and healthy habits that will help us to handle this pressure effectively.
An understanding of psychological type is recognised as an important way of helping colleagues, our clients and ourselves to create strategies for building resilience. This webinar is aimed at providing MBTI practitioners working in the NHS to better use type to understand individual differences in the experience of stress and in strengthening resilience. A key part of the webinar is designed to provide you with the ideas and materials to use the MBTI as a tool to improve resilience.
The content of the webinar:
• Definitions and models of resilience
• How type can be used to understand how individuals experience stress
• Identifying types at their best, what happens under pressure and when in distress
• Developing an understanding of the energisers and stressors for individual types
• Creating strategies and remedies based on type

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 the development of compassionate and inclusive leadership for all staff at every level.
In response to this, the KSS Leadership Academy has developed a 1-day Self Discovery Workshop.
This opportunity will offer you the ability to ‘self’ explore and help plan the next steps of your career journey. The day has been designed as an entry-level workshop to support compassionate and inclusive leadership for all; and is aimed at clinical and non-clinical staff in band 5, 6 and 7.
All applicants will need their Line Manager's (Sponsor) support to attend the one-day programme.
To find out more about the workshop and how to book your place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a three day programme which is free of charge and designed for patients and carers who have taken on ‘lay partner’ or ‘lay member’ roles, working with clinicians and managers in the NHS.
As a participant of this programme, you will:
develop your understanding of the changing NHS
develop your negotiating, influencing and leadership skills
experience real life case studies and scenarios and work with coaches and peer mentors that will support you with your development.
The programme will be highly interactive and you will have the opportunity to share your expertise, as well as learning from others across Kent, Surrey and Sussex that have similar roles.
The three dates for the current presentation of this programme are 21st February 2018, 22nd February 2018 and 20th March 2018.
Please note: each day builds on the one before – they are not standalone – so if you would like to apply, you agree that you will be able to attend all 3 sessions and participate in our evaluation.
This event is only open to successful applicants who attended the first and second days on 21st and 22nd February.
This one day taster workshop is based on a major long-term study into what it takes for ‘truth to be spoken to power’ and years of practical experience in working with the psychology of conflict. The day will address what it takes both to speak-up safely, and to make it safer for other people to speak up - especially when speaking to those who are seen as having more power.
In addition, a professional voice coach, will share vocal techniques used by a wide range of speakers and performers to increase their presence and enhance their capacity to influence conversations.
As a result of this workshop participants will:
Understand how their experiences of power and hierarchy underpins their interactions with others
Explore what it takes to create conditions of psychological safety that enable people to speak more freely
Diagnose their own, and their teams, capacity to speak up and listen up
Identify what steps they can take to improve their existing speak-up, listen-up culture
Gain confidence in getting their message across
This exploration, which will be a mix of the experiential and presentational, will explicitly consider these areas from the individual, inter-personal and systemic perspectives. In addition, participants will have a much greater understanding of the barriers to the free flow of communication - and some tools and strategies for lowering the barriers and finding their voice.
To apply, please email email@example.com to request an application form.
Leadership in Turbulent Times
Collaborating across boundaries to improve Services
The aim of the day is to stimulate new thinking and learning, join up more of the system to itself, make new connections, and begin conversations that lead to tangible innovation and changes in how people lead across cultural, professional and organisational boundaries.
This conference will provide a forum for leaders in health and social care to meet and discuss shared challenges, shared visions and successful practices for how to improve collaboration, share learning and make improvements across the KSS region.
The conference will draw presenters and participants from across the spectrum of health, social care professionals, patient and community groups, systems leaders and specialists in leadership development, staff engagement and service design and innovation.
