Keynote 1

Compassionate Leadership for High Quality, Compassionate Health Care

Description

How can we ensure our health care organisations are developing cultures of high quality, continually improving and compassionate care? This presentation gives the research evidence and practical guidance necessary to help leaders ensure compassion, high quality and innovation are at the heart of health care cultures in their organisations. It describes the key cultural elements associated with high performance in health care: vision and values; goals and performance; support and compassion; learning and innovation; and team work and collaboration within and across organisational boundaries. The masterclass describes how compassionate leadership is essential to create the conditions for practice development. Practical, open source tools that leaders can use to develop their leadership and their teams will be described. The presentation will show how leadership that creates cultures for high quality care for patients also can ensure the well-being and flourishing of all those who work within our health care organisations.

ICOP

Celebrating Person-centredness: International Collaborations through a Community of Practice

Description

Focus: In this session the ‘International Community of Practice for Person-centred Practice’ (ICoP) will present an overview of the work of the ICoP and how we are advancing knowledge in the field of person-centredness. Approaches to person-centred theory and practice continue to grow and there is much scope in creatively developing global partnerships to advance knowledge. In addition, practices continue to evolve and it is important for us to engage in dialogue about such changes and identify new ways of supporting, researching and educating about these ways of working. The ICoP exists to advance such theory and practice through dialogue and partnership working. Over the lifetime of the ICoP we have focused on research into particular theoretical approaches, creative methods of evaluation, developing measurement tools and processes and developing evidence to support practice at individual, organisational and strategic levels. In this session we will present this work and engage in a critical dialogue about future directions for person-centredness.

Keynote 2

Dance and Leadership: How leaders and followers relate and influence each other

Description

In complex environments in 21st-century organisations, leaders need to engage in new, innovative and people-centred ways of managing. Leadership has thus been considered an “art”, not only a “science”, and has also been compared to “dance”: The interaction in leadership situations involves both leaders and followers, is “in motion” and constantly changing. Leaders and followers participate in the situation collectively and perceive the relationship not only through their rational mind, but with their whole body and its empathy. Leadership theory has long said that bodies do not matter until researchers have taken into account the lived world of leadership – which also is particularly important for people working in the healthcare sector. This keynote provides examples from the arts world, from ballroom dancing and from DJs who use their bodies to make sense of situations. It also includes practical elements of movement exercises to make participants experience in new ways the dynamics of leadership and followership.
