In her latest blog, Karen Lynas, former interim managing director of the NHS Leadership Academy asks ‘are you changing a bullying culture or contributing to it?’
On the 180th birthday of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (Thursday 9 June), Interim Managing Director of the NHS Leadership Academy, Karen Lynas looks back at who she was and the impact she’s made.
I thought I would open my welcome to 2016 blog with a bit of looking back with appreciation and respect as well as some hopeful looking forward.
I recently hosted our first annual global leadership conference, sponsored by KPMG. This event, primarily for our programme alumni, was designed to be an extension of our leadership learning for those who have already embarked on their learning journey with us. We drew together some exceptional speakers, bringing to life the idea of learning from others globally while sharing what the NHS can do to help others. My short reflections are here.
We are told, those of us who study MBTI, that there is no value attributed to any of the styles and attributes – they just are. Talking to ‘extroverts’ of course this never quite seems to be the case. There is some implied strength in extroversion and some implied weakness in introversion. My nervousness with Cain’s thinking is it begins to tip the other way.
