Co-Productive Leadership

We conduct leadership programmes for community members and professionals from the health and care system to develop their co-productive leadership skills so that they can learn to work positively and effectively together to make a sustainable difference to local health and social care systems

We empower communities through Co-Productive Leadership.

There is a growing appreciation of the fact that health and social care services have the potential to be even more effective when they truly involve members of the community as valued partners.

In recent years there has been an increasingly acknowledged imperative for co-producing health and social care services.  This approach recognises the value of engaging service users and the wider community as active partners in the design and delivery of health and social care services; and appreciates the value of integrating co-production approaches in the strategic leadership of services.

We have a specific expertise in the design and delivery of leadership programmes for community members and professionals from the health and care system to develop their co-productive leadership skills so that they can learn to work positively and effectively together to make a sustainable difference to the local healthcare system. 

At the heart of our approach is the desire to support both practitioners and leaders from the community to develop the skills and attitudes that support collaboration and partnership working. 

To achieve this, our Co-productive Leadership programmes create opportunities for practitioners and people who use services to:

  • Connect together and understand each other’s point of view more deeply
  • Engage in real and meaningful learning together to develop co-productive leadership skills and an inclusive mindset
  • Understand the needs and assets in their communities and discover how to encourage local momentum for change
  • Develop reflective skills to go beyond personal stories and interests, thereby building the strategic leadership capability to impact the system
  • Take theory into action through project based approaches that require them to lead together

Our programmes are highly experiential and practical, and are delivered across an extended time period in order to enable people to develop relationships, learn from each other and work together to lead and influence health and social care in their local area.

An example of our work in this area is the Leading Together Programme that we developed with the Oxford Academic Health Science Network.
