The importance of cross-sectoral working has long been recognized in areas such as community care and public health where problems span organizational boundaries. Integrated care is increasingly important as more patients have multiple and long-term conditions and more services are provided by private and voluntary organisations. Recent strategic planning guidance requires leaders to plan service delivery in partnership, across their health economy. “Systems” leadership is needed to deliver transformational change in the face of complex, fluid, “wicked” issues, where no single organization can catalyse and sustain the change required. A valid and reliable measure of systems leadership would be helpful in developing systems leadership E.g. providing feedback on systems leadership performance to aid development; evaluating programmes to develop systems leadership.
This seminar describes skills and attributes that a systems leader may find useful, and outlines how an instrument to measure a key component of systems leadership – civic capacity – might be developed. It will aim to answer the following questions:
• Systems leadership, transformational leadership and civic capacity – what are they, and how are they related to each other?
• How might civic capacity be measured?
• How might a measure of civic capacity be developed and tested?
The seminar will be of interest to anyone who is involved in cross-sectoral or multi-agency working, or in supporting the development of individuals involved in such working.
