“Heads Up” - October 2014
The monthly round-up of news from Yorkshire & the Humber Leadership Academy
Welcome September has seen a great deal of activity for the team as our weekly updates testify. Our 2013 GMTS intake started and were welcomed into the NHS at the National Welcome Event. We are now gearing up for our the Regional Event 24th October. Nominations for the Regional Leadership Awards came pouring in at the last minute with over 150 nominations! This is up on last year and the quality is very high, we’re looking forward to the Awards Ceremony 3rd December. Inclusive and Diverse Leadership continues to be a high priority for us. We were delighted by the turnout at the Inclusion Event for Chief Executives and Directors. The event provided a safe space for discussion and action planning to create more diverse senior leadership across Yorkshire and the Humber. We also received plenty of bids against the Innov8 Fund and are very proud to be able to support individuals and organisations as they work to develop diverse talent. Lisa Chan is a welcome addition to our team; she joins John Hunter as our key link supporting the delivery of the National Leadership Programmes and Awards. Looking ahead to the coming months our activity is increasingly aimed at improving engagement with our stakeholders across the Yorkshire and Humber region to ensure that our leadership and organisation development offer remains relevant and responsive to your needs. Support to ‘System Leadership’ interventions and specific OD consultancy requests seem to be on the increase which is exciting since we are in the process of re-launching the Strategic OD network. Working with OD practitioners across the patch we are designing interventions to increase capacity and capability in this area. If you would like more information please get in touch.

Regional News Developing Diverse Talent event round up 5th September we hosted an event with the NHS Leadership Academy to meet with the most senior leaders of healthcare in our region, to provide a safe space for NHS Chief Executives and senior leaders to reflect, discuss and take action to increase diversity of race and ethnicity in the leadership and governance of the NHS. Over 22 Senior Leaders attended the session, delivered by Carol Campayne and Roger Kline. The workshop was balanced to ensure a link between personal, collective and wider responsibility with round table discussions and presentations from Roger around his findings across the region. A number of resources were circulated on the day, which you can view here. For further information, contact Lynsey Nicholson.
Regional News Invitation to Senior Leaders to join Accelerate discussion
Cross – sector mentoring system We held a design day 2nd October to introduce the cross sector mentoring system to stakeholders from the region, including staff from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Leeds Community Healthcare, York Teaching Hospitals, Bradford District Care Trust and Health & Social Care Information Centre.
The Accelerate programme progresses the leadership journey and careers of junior to midlevel leaders, with a focus on inclusive leadership skills and values to benefit participants, their colleagues and patients and service users. To celebrate the completion of the latest cohort, we are hosting an event 22nd October at the Novotel in Leeds; we invite senior leaders to join us for a round table discussion prior to the networking lunch. Please contact Lynsey Nicholson for further details.
Stakeholders worked with the provider to help focus the system to offer a simple and intuitive means by which users can find help to close important knowing and doing gaps. Our next step is to gather names of organisations who wish to access the system; we have lists of NHS organisations in the region but if there are nonNHS organisations you partner with that should be included, email Amanda Allen to let us know.
Regional News Innov8 Associates
The Innov8 Associates had their first meeting this week with the Innov8 team to discuss their individual ideas around diversity and inclusion in their own organisations.
The Innov8 Fund closed to application on 25th September. We received 11 applications from our stakeholders asking for financial investment into an area of work intending to support diverse leadership, improve the health of an organisation or providing more inclusive services. The panel are due to make their decisions in October, following this we will be able to confirm the successful applications. If you have any queries about Innov8, contact Lynsey Nicholson.
The Associates have been sponsored to cover their time and a range of resources to drive their ideas forward around issues of gender parity, healthy organisations and inclusive and representative leadership. The meeting was thought provoking and a real insight into the work being driven by passionate individuals in the region, with a key motivation for making change happen at a local level for the people they work with and the communities they serve. We will continue to update you about the work of our Associates via the website, where you can also find the details of their proposals.

Regional & National News NHS Leadership Academy Survey request
Staff Networks request
The NHS Leadership Academy have commissioned a piece of research, in partnership with the Foundation Trust Network, into researching ethnicity, disability and NHS recruitment and leadership.

National Programmes Over 400 nurses and midwives from Yorkshire and the Humber take part in Frontline The NHS Leadership Academy development programme, Frontline, has had over 400 nurses and midwives from our region take part. The first 25 cohorts nationally completed at the end of September, with a further 65 either underway or due to open in the coming months. 400 is a fantastic result for Yorkshire and the Humber – to put in to context, the national target for Frontline is 5,000 over one year. Thank you to our stakeholders for passing on the opportunity, and supporting staff through the programme. Feedback received formally and anecdotally from participants and the workshop facilitators Hay Group has been overwhelmingly positive.
We want to make sure your nurses and midwives take up this offer while still available as a funded programme. Please let us know of any opportunities we can take to come to your organisation to talk to staff and give out information. Contact John Hunter or Lisa Chan to arrange. “I did have the opinion I am a band 5 I cannot change anything. That opinion has now well and truly disappeared this is not the case no matter who you are within the workplace I can make a difference no matter how small and if everyone makes one small change the impact will be and can be huge.”
