“Heads Up” - October 2014
The monthly round-up of news from Yorkshire &
the Humber Leadership Academy
September has seen a great deal of activity for the team as our weekly updates testify. Our 2013 GMTS intake started
and were welcomed into the NHS at the National Welcome Event. We are now gearing up for our the Regional Event
24th October. Nominations for the Regional Leadership Awards came pouring in at the last minute with over 150
nominations! This is up on last year and the quality is very high, we’re looking forward to the Awards Ceremony 3rd
Inclusive and Diverse Leadership continues to be a high priority for us. We were delighted by the turnout at the
Inclusion Event for Chief Executives and Directors. The event provided a safe space for discussion and action planning
to create more diverse senior leadership across Yorkshire and the Humber. We also received plenty of bids against the
Innov8 Fund and are very proud to be able to support individuals and organisations as they work to develop diverse
Lisa Chan is a welcome addition to our team; she joins John Hunter as our key link supporting the delivery of the
National Leadership Programmes and Awards.
Looking ahead to the coming months our activity is increasingly aimed at improving engagement with our stakeholders
across the Yorkshire and Humber region to ensure that our leadership and organisation development offer remains
relevant and responsive to your needs. Support to ‘System Leadership’ interventions and specific OD consultancy
requests seem to be on the increase which is exciting since we are in the process of re-launching the Strategic OD
network. Working with OD practitioners across the patch we are designing interventions to increase capacity and
capability in this area. If you would like more information please get in touch.

Developing Diverse Talent event round up
5th September we hosted an event with the NHS Leadership Academy to meet with the most senior
leaders of healthcare in our region, to provide a safe space for NHS Chief Executives and senior
leaders to reflect, discuss and take action to increase diversity of race and ethnicity in the leadership
and governance of the NHS. Over 22 Senior Leaders attended the session, delivered by Carol
Campayne and Roger Kline. The workshop was balanced to ensure a link between personal,
collective and wider responsibility with round table discussions and presentations from Roger around
his findings across the region.
A number of resources were circulated on the day, which you can view here. For further information,

Invitation to Senior Leaders to join Accelerate
Cross – sector mentoring system
We held a design day 2nd October to introduce
the cross sector mentoring system to
stakeholders from the region, including staff from
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Leeds Community
Healthcare, York Teaching Hospitals, Bradford
District Care Trust and Health & Social Care
Information Centre.
The Accelerate programme progresses the
leadership journey and careers of junior to midlevel leaders, with a focus on inclusive
leadership skills and values to benefit
participants, their colleagues and patients and
service users. To celebrate the completion of the
latest cohort, we are hosting an event 22nd
October at the Novotel in Leeds; we invite
senior leaders to join us for a round table
discussion prior to the networking lunch. Please
contact Lynsey Nicholson for further details.
Stakeholders worked with the provider to help
focus the system to offer a simple and intuitive
means by which users can find help to close
important knowing and doing gaps. Our next
step is to gather names of organisations who
wish to access the system; we have lists of NHS
organisations in the region but if there are nonNHS organisations you partner with that should
be included, email Amanda Allen to let us know.

Innov8 Associates
Innov8 Fund
The Innov8 Associates had their first meeting
this week with the Innov8 team to discuss their
individual ideas around diversity and inclusion in
their own organisations.
The Innov8 Fund closed to application on 25th
September. We received 11 applications from
our stakeholders asking for financial investment
into an area of work intending to support diverse
leadership, improve the health of an organisation
or providing more inclusive services. The panel
are due to make their decisions in October,
following this we will be able to confirm the
successful applications.
If you have any queries about Innov8, contact
Lynsey Nicholson.
The Associates have been sponsored to cover
their time and a range of resources to drive their
ideas forward around issues of gender parity,
healthy organisations and inclusive and
representative leadership. The meeting was
thought provoking and a real insight into the
work being driven by passionate individuals in
the region, with a key motivation for making
change happen at a local level for the people
they work with and the communities they serve.
We will continue to update you about the work of
our Associates via the website, where you can
also find the details of their proposals.

“I did have the opinion I am a band 5 I cannot
change anything. That opinion has now well and
truly disappeared this is not the case no matter
who you are within the workplace I can make a
difference no matter how small and if everyone
makes one small change the impact will be and
can be huge.”
