Leadership training for care home managers

An evaluation undertaken by the Oxford AHSN of the NHS South East Leadership Academy [SELA] Care Home Managers’ Leadership Learning Group.

The SELA have been running this Programme for around a decade for care home managers working in a variety of settings from care of the elderly to long-term adult healthcare facilities.  Current literature suggests that transformational leadership behaviours may link to better safety and quality outcomes for patients and carers.

A cohort of participants were interviewed to understand the impact of their learning and how that translated into a locally run project.

The evaluation highlighted that this specific leadership training course had an influence on:

  • The individual learning styles of care home leaders/managers
  • The behaviours of these leaders when dealing with team dynamics
  • Team and clients through the co-design of projects

Here’s some of the feedback from participant’s learning:

  • “I use feedback from staff to develop myself”
  • “I can delegate and work with others to achieve a common goal”
  • “I will involve staff in the process and make sure I don’t over plan”
  • “Change is possible with good management skills”
