Virtual workshop: Collaboration: Accountability and commitment

Date: 10 February 2022
Time: 09:30 to 12:30
Location: Online

A key challenge we face when collaborating is influencing others to take accountability and contribute to a collective objective. Our working world is becoming ever more complex and we must maintain productive working relationships with many colleagues within and beyond our own organisations. Mastering the skills to encourage commitment and enable the group to take accountability is critical to achieve successful outcomes.

Our interactive virtual workshop will explore ways to create clear commitment and develop the conditions where a team or group can hold itself to account to deliver great outcomes. During the session you will:

  • discuss a simple yet really effective model for creating commitment
  • identify the skills and behaviours necessary to enable peer accountability 
  • learn to reach agreement on why and how to work together for successful outcomes

By the end of the session, you’ll have developed a personal action plan to address your current collaboration challenges by securing commitment and accountability to achieve successful outcomes.

The workshop is open to NIHR research leaders and postdoctoral NIHR Academy Members.  It is intended for those who may be developing a leadership career, or for experienced leaders who wish to reflect on their practice and explore new approaches to leadership.

To indicate your interest in participating in this virtual workshop please complete the expression of interest form no later than midday on Thursday 20 January. If selected, you will receive confirmation of your place by close of business on Thursday 27 January.

Places are limited to 16 participants. As we expect a high level of demand, places will be allocated to ensure a fair representation across the NIHR leaders community and prioritising those who have not participated in the programme previously.
