Leadership is for everyone: take the leadership challenge with the new Self Assessment Tool
A Self Assessment Tool, linked to the Clinical Leadership Competency Framework (CLCF), is now available for anyone in health and care services who would like to review - quickly, easily and free of charge – their leadership skills.
The Self Assessment Tool can be downloaded here:
As well as being able to complete the tool themselves, individuals may wish to involve their line manager and/or peers to help them to identify areas for possible development.
Having done this, the online Leadership Development Module provides guidance and information on how to develop your leadership capability: http://www.nhsleadershipframework.rightmanagement.co.uk/development-guide
The Self Assessment Tool is based on the to the CLCF, which is designed to ensure that all clinicians can have the leadership knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to improve health and care and sits at the heart of the Leadership Framework which was launched by the Secretary of State for Health on June 29th.
The Leadership Framework incorporates the CLCF and the Medical Leadership Competency Framework (MLCF) which apply to clinicians and doctors (respectively) at all stages of their professional journey – from the time they enter formal training, become qualified as a practitioner and throughout their continuing professional development as experienced practitioners.
It has been developed with the input of all the professional bodies and has the support of the chief professions’ officers, the professions’ advisory boards, education bodies and the Department of Health.
