PARTNERSHIP AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Co-productive leadership

[SUMMARY PARAGRAPH]

Our Co-productive Leadership programmes are designed to support people working in health and social care to develop the capacity to work more co-productively with the communities they serve. 

The wider context and rationale for our programmes is the increasingly acknowledged imperative for co-producing health and social care services.  This approach recognizes the value of engaging service users and the wider community, as active partners in the design and delivery of health and social care services; and appreciates the value of integrating co-production approaches in the strategic leadership of services.

At the heart of our approach is the desire to support both practitioners and leaders from the community to develop the skills and attitudes that support collaboration and partnership working.

To achieve this, our Co-productive Leadership programmes create opportunities for practitioners and people who use services to:

  • Connect together and understand each other’s point of view more deeply
  • Engage in real and meaningful learning together to develop co-productive leadership skills and an inclusive mindset
  • Understand the needs and assets in their communities and discover how to encourage local momentum for change
  • Develop reflective skills to go beyond personal stories and interests, thereby building the strategic leadership capability to impact the system
  • Take theory into action through project based approaches that require them to lead together

Our programmes are highly experiential and practical, and are delivered across an extended time period in order to enable people to develop relationships, learn from each other and work together to lead and influence health and social care in their local area.
