  1. Agenda item 9 Reform Group 5 Sept 11 Top Leader diagnostic results for London June 2011

  2. NHS Top Leaders was created to: • Manage the talent pipeline for senior positions • Support the NHS to have the right leaders, in the right place, at the right time • Be ‘spoilt for choice’ when recruiting to senior posts • Help move us closer to senior leaders being more representative of the communities they serve • Develop a community of purpose – leaders mobilised for QIPP • Nurture our next generation of senior leaders

  3. The Top Leaders Diagnostic was developed to support identification of individual and collective leadership development needs

  4. The Top Leaders Diagnostic offers a comprehensive view of each participant’s leadership based on a range of indicators

  5. Diagnostic elements

  6. Flexibility Responsibility Standards Rewards Clarity Team Commitment Directive Short term Long term Task Long term or big picture Visionary Short term Long term Affiliative Rewards not always tied to performance Participative Pacesetting With a good team With less directed team Short term Coaching Long term Short term Positive impact Negative impact Impact varies depending on situation All 6 styles are valid and have a role to play. When over-used some can have a negative impact.

  7. Overall findings to date show that our leaders are resilient and determined: • We have leaders who are intellectually robust • Our leaders are tough minded and self-confident • By using pacesetting, our leaders demonstrate they are prepared to get involved, set standards, role model and drive projects/results through • Our leaders are values-driven, committed to making a difference, and this is not profession-dependent

  8. However the diagnostic suggests...... • We have a pre-dominant Pacesetting style across all of the data set so far. The implication is that the majority of leaders are not mixing this with a wide enough range of other styles, which could result in staff feeling disempowered • The majority of leaders (65%) are not creating strongly motivational work climates • Whilst a pacesetting style ensures delivery it can result in staff feeling “left behind” • That Leaders exhibit an absence of attention to detail and focus on completion of tasks

  9. Pace-setting has enabled us to transform the NHS in the last decadeHowever, we need to be aware that: “Culture defines leadership.” Edgar H Schein

  10. Important to acknowledge... • It’s a team game • Need a safe defence, creative midfield and ruthless attack

  11. NHS in London:Range of Leadership Styles being used Dominant Styles Used:Extensive:4 or more stylesBroad: 3 stylesLimited: 2 stylesNarrow: 1 or no styles

  12. NHS in London:Organisational climate being created

  13. Summary – the Climate the NHS Leaders in London are creating for others

  14. The Top Leaders programme offers support for individuals • Top Leaders Core programme (4 days + 2 days + intervening learning sets) • Exec coaching (4 funded sessions with coach from NHSI coaching register) • Action Learning sets available, facilitated by Dr David Ashton • Masterclasses – August: Commercial Acumen (2 days), September: Alan Milburn, October: Mark Britnell (International perspectives), November: Sally Davies • Bursary scheme available for bespoke interventions • One to one development support - working with people on a one to one basis about what this means for them in practice • Communities of Practice (4 active – Communications, Medicine, Finance and Strategy) • Mentor brokering (we help match suitable people) • Other activities in place now include peer-mentoring scheme with ACEVO

  15. A key component of the solution is to support leaders to use pacesetting with a wider range of styles

  16. The changes in the NHS mean that we need to be more adaptable as leaders • Patient/carer expectations of the NHS are on the rise (quality, access…..) • Demand is increasing and resources are reducing so we need to do more with the same/less • In consequence • The need for effective distributed leadership is increasing • Pathway networking/service mergers mean that partnership working is expanding • We need to use a wide range of leadership styles to deliver

  17. Proposed next steps for London • Share the analysis and reflections on the unique circumstances that existed which led to these findings and how we retain all that’s good in our leadership whilst adapting to the new world in which we will deliver healthcare • Form a reference group from the leaders who have completed the diagnostic – seek their views on tailored support that will help them make the shifts identified • Develop and run workshops/masterclasses to help individuals and teams understand how to flex their leadership styles • Incorporate modules on leadership style, it’s impact and how to adapt it, into all NHSL leadership programmes • Develop and deliver a support package to meet the needs identified by the reference group • Ensure that leaders at all levels understand how to adapt their ways of working to enable appropriate use of styles beyond pace-setting
