Collaborating and Systems Leadership

Collaborating and System Leadership

Collaboration has always been at the heart of great care. The transition to Integrated Care Systems outlined in Working Together to Improve Health and Social Care For All will require further developments in ways of working across the NHS, local authorities, third sector and private organisations. These resources are about leading differently in collaboration for the benefits of population health and reducing health inequalities.

These new partnerships and ways of working challenge the development of skill sets around:

  • Thinking in a systemic way while balancing existing organisational demands
  • Being able to work with what emerges as well as what is planned
  • Seeking multiple perspectives and walking in each other’s shoes
  • Developing solutions through compromise
  • Building relationships with a system focus
  • Being self-reflective 
  • Being a supportive peer across a system
