Can you support NHS leaders with ethical challenges?

thumb image

Are you an NHS leader with experience in negotiating your way through ethical dilemmas? Do you feel able to support other leaders who are facing ethical challenges in the workplace?

We’re looking for mentors for our Ethical Mentoring programme who could give leaders timely, relevant and impactful mentoring support during difficult times.

NHS leaders are expected to tackle complex and often confusing problems against a backdrop of a changeable and political system. As a mentor, you’ll provide timely, relevant and impactful mentoring to empower them to:

  • Create an environment for an open dialogue
  • Understand and work with the ethical dilemma
  • Explore and question their own values
  • Recognise and challenge groupthink and false logic
  • Make difficult choices
  • Have difficult conversations with other people
  • Raise their ethical awareness and ethical competence

If you’d like to get involved, you need to be:

  • Either: An accredited mentor/coach working formally through regional coaching & mentoring registers
  • Or: NHS staff who regularly (on an informal basis) have experience of working with leaders within a coaching or mentoring capacity and can demonstrate a firm understanding of coaching/mentoring methods

The programme starts with two days of training on 20th and 21st July 2016 in London covering the theory and practice of ethical mentoring with Professor David Clutterbuck and Professor Ceilia Moore.

  1. Dear Charmaine,
    I would like to enrol on this course but as a clinician we need to give at least 6 weeks notice to cancel clinical activity. Is there any possibility of another course with more notice?

    1. Dear Andrew

      We apologise for the short timescale to enrol on this course, we endeavour to give people as much time as possible and know we did not give as much time as we would have liked this time.

      Our aim is to run future cohorts for the programme which we will invite you to once details have been finalised.

      Kind regards
