Residential 3 (Days 5, 6 & 7)


Welcome to Residential 3 of your NPQEL with Inspiring Leaders



Day 5 – Working in Partnership


The aims of the day are:

  • To appreciate that the group is only as strong as its weakest link – i.e. it is everyone’s responsibility to work together for the good of all, as opposed to just being concerned with your own personal area of operation.
  • To understand how teams work to achieve shared loyalty and shared responsibility effectively.
  • To learn how to empower leaders at all levels across the group to have shared high expectation.
  • To explore how to provide opportunities for co-construction and therefore shared ownership and shared responsibility and effectively create and embed a shared vision/culture/ethos/mission.
  • To understand how to achieve and maintain high levels of motivation within the workforce all centred round the ‘improving outcomes for all’ agenda?
