Learning together

Our learning hub contains links to different ways for culture change sponsors, change leads and change teams to learn with others about implementing the Culture and Leadership Programme.

Our promise

One of our priorities in the Culture Transformation Team is to support you and your colleagues to develop your own skills so that you can successfully transform the culture of your organisation and/or system and feel confident using our tools and tailoring our resources for best effect within your context.

As a first step, we have developed two reflective tools for use within Change Teams:

  • Leadership behaviours reflection questionnaire: This questionnaire encourages Change Team members to reflect on their own leadership behaviours as agents for change within an organisation.
  • Team working for assessment: The Change Team is also a group of people coming together around a shared goal. Working effectively together as a team is important for the success of their shared work together. We have therefore created a team working assessment for use within the change team in order to help you assess and reflect on the effectiveness of your team’s functioning.
  • Compassionate conversations: For some, holding a compassionate conversation may feel daunting at first. We have developed a short guide on how to hold compassionate conversations with colleagues. This guide shares several hints, tips, further resources and reading to enable colleagues to have compassionate conversations whether it be with, or as, a team leader, line manager, supervisor, as well as peer to peer and with patients.

Sharing your stories

We have a growing collection of stories from colleagues in different roles and settings who have used the Culture and Leadership Programme to affect real and lasting change in their organisations. If you would be happy to share your story or your organisation’s/system’s journey, please get in touch, and we’ll publish it here.

Online learning courses

Are you interested in using the Culture and Leadership Programme in your organisation? Are you a Programme Lead, member of a Change Team, or another stakeholder interested in learning more?

We have created an online learning course and content to provide you with an overview of the programme and its principles, as well as guidance on how to use the tools.

Find out more about the course.

If there is some learning you feel you need, please let us know! We’re learning too.

Space to learn together, for you, for organisations and for systems

We are developing a learning network and creating space for communities of practice to share learning and peer support. We hope this growing community is an interactive space to share your learning and ask your colleagues for advice and guidance, as well as sharing resources like case studies and blogs relevant to your community. As a community we are stronger together!

To support the community of practice, we have convened an online community space. Join the space to connect with and learn from colleagues who are working to transform organisational cultures using the Culture and Leadership Programme, and other approaches too.

As part of this learning network, we are also hosting a series of learning events. To find the latest events, please visit the NHS England and NHS Improvement events pages.
