Social Care Ireland are delighted to be working with Gearoid on this leadership workshop. This is a full day’s workshop to develop skills for Health and Social Care Professional staff to operate in the current environment. Adaptive leadership is a practical leadership framework that helps individuals adapt and thrive in challenging environments. It is being able, both individually and collectively, to take on the gradual but meaningful process of change. It is about diagnosing the essential from the expendable and bringing about a real challenge to the status quo. Supporting the HSCP staff as they navigate Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA).
This intervention puts the service user / patient at the centre of their own care. By supporting them in their own environment it minimises hospital admissions as HSCP staff will have the tools to support their service users in the community. The HSCP staff will have a toolset to support each other and service users

Develop skills for HSCP staff to operate in the current environment to get the best outcomes for their service users while letting those users make their own decisions.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Confidence to diagnose a situation.
  • Ability to advocate on behalf of the service user.
  • Assertiveness in asserting one’s own view.
  • Tools to ensure the service user keeps ownership of the problem.
