System Leadership Webinar Series – Compassionate Leadership

30 March 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

We are pleased to provide a series of 90 minute leadership webinars from three inspirational and well renowned speakers.

  Prof Michael West 

Michael West joined The King’s Fund as a Senior Fellow in 2013. He is Professor of Work and Organisational Psychology at Lancaster University, Visiting Professor at University College, Dublin, and Emeritus Professor at Aston University. He has authored, edited and co-edited 20 books and has published more than 200 articles on teamwork, leadership and culture particularly in healthcare.

During the session Michael will discuss how compassionate leadership is needed now more than ever in Health and Social Care. This moment of crisis is an opportunity to collectively improve the leadership culture across the Health and Social Care system. It is vital that, as the System responds to Covid-19 challenges, leaders and managers model and promote compassion in an enduring way including self-compassion. Compassion is certain, unchanging and provides a safe refuge in the face of this onslaught on health and care systems and our wider communities. Compassionate leadership is the most potent way people can deal with what feels frightening and overwhelming and leaders need to focus compassion on all those who provide health and care services whatever their role or grade. Michael will explore answers to questions such as what is compassionate leadership? How do we create cultures where staff can deliver compassionate care, cultures of compassion? How do leaders lead with compassion through a crisis but also lead with compassion to help staff recover?
