Leading beyond COVID-19: a QI Connect webinar

In this session, Suzie Bailey Director of Leadership and Organisational Development at The King's Fund, reflects on the learning from the 2020 pandemic and the current leadership approaches in health and care services in the UK and beyond.

Session themes
We have a global workforce crisis in healthcare, with projections by the World Health Organisation showing that an additional 40 million health workers will be needed by 2030. Even before COVID-19, the NHS experienced difficulty retaining staff, and excessive workloads, stress and burnout have been normalised.

Over the last few months, leaders have needed to sharpen their focus on meeting the core needs of staff, ensuring their wellbeing and sustained motivation to help them deal with the rapidly changing situation of the pandemic.

Drawing on themes from the King's Fund's Leading through COVID-19 series and this year's QI Connect sessions, Suzie will explore the need for a leadership detox – to re-imagine leadership to help create a better future for our communities.

This includes challenging current norms of what makes an effective leader – she will describe how the four nations of the UK are leading changes in both policy and practice.

As 2020 nears an end, Suzie will invite participants to reflect on what they have learned personally this year and what positive changes they will commit to make to their own leadership practice, to teamworking and to building better relationships.
