VODG seminar tackles leadership in turbulent times

VODG occasional seminar in partnership with Choice Support

Uncertainty storms around us and our anxiety magnifies with relentless distractions coming at us from all directions. Fear is real. How do we lead surrounded by such fear, distraction and unleashed harshness? Are justice, equality, dignity and respect just pretty words on paper? Or can we get out of the way of the firefighting and intentionally lead our services toward a healthier today and brighter future for the people we support, our staff, our communities and all of us? Together?

We know the realities. There is an increasing demand for services with rising costs, and a workforce that is worried and resistant to come on board. These are very real problems that we need to face – now! And, there are also real innovations emerging from the unprecedented changes of funding, expectations and policy making.

Join us with Dr Nan Carle Beauregard for an interactive seminar to reflect and reclaim our leadership roles in this time and place. We will focus on expanding your leadership practices that manage conflict and embrace diversity. There are so many positive things emerging in the social care world – let’s make sure they do not get over shadowed by a negative press and conversations designed to distract and hurt. Let’s make our conversations matter.

Join us on Monday 4th December 2017 (11:00 – 13:00 | London)

VODG members and non-members are welcome. Places are limited and registration is essential via this link.
