I design and deliver post graduate leadership programmes and bespoke leadership courses that really make a difference. This is because, while including excellent economic and quantitative perspectives, they draw on ideas and insights from right across the humanities, and focus on behaviours as much as on knowledge.
I coach and mentor individuals and teams, and facilitate learning sets that challenge received wisdom and develop valuable new theory. I have also written (award winning) books , chapters and papers which I make freely available on my website.
And I love it.
I call it ‘putting people in touch with powerful ideas’. It is all about helping people wake up to a wider, more interesting world than the one they think they are in, find ways of living harmoniously with that world , flourish and realise their potential.
I am delighted to be a Fellow of the RCGP, where I directed their national leadership programme for 5 years, and an honorary senior lecturer at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where I teach one of their top rated management modules.
Learning Sets that really make a difference
Individual and team development:
• Enjoying (flourishing in) your leadership role
• Supporting, challenging and enabling your team
• Living your values
• Increasing your influence and being noticed
• Managing and responding to change
Service and organisational development:
• Commissioning compassionate care
• Compassionate management for compassionate care
• Challenging, supporting and enabling clinicians/ clinical teams
Developing the developers (in any of these areas)
Constructive challenge from someone who cares passionately about patients, Valerie has fundamentally altered the way I think about Clinical leadership'
