Workshop: Inclusive and Compassionate Leadership

Date: 27 January 2021
Time: 13:30 to 16:30
Location: Online

This workshop forms part of our modular leadership programme, which is designed for leaders who are leading a team in any context. You may be a manager of others, leading a research project, and/or working collaboratively to develop research grant applications. You are likely to be developing your approach to leadership, or to be an experienced leader who wishes to reflect on your practice and explore new approaches to leadership.

Who can attend? 

  • NIHR Research Leaders: NIHR staff with a substantive leadership role (leading large teams and/or cross-NIHR projects)
  • NIHR Academy Members: at least two years post-PHD on a NIHR-funded training award

The workshop, delivered online over two half-days, explores the roles of compassion and inclusive principles in leadership and how you can enhance these in your practice as a leader. It draws on the compassion and inclusivity work of the NIHR Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Programme Board, the Kings Fund, and the NHS Leadership Framework and People Plan.

Please note that you will need to be available to attend both the half-day workshops on the dates below:

Workshop Part 1: 27 January 2021, 13.30 – 16.30 (online)
Workshop Part 2: 2 February 2021, 09.30 – 12.30 (online)
