We continue to face challenging times across all sectors and now many people are also facing personal challenges as a result of the wider economic situation. Understanding how difficult this can be, we will look at how it’s more important than ever that we are intentional in how we lead ourselves in our responses and our connections with others.

“Our greatest glory is not that we never fail, but that we rise up each time we fall” – Confucius 

With our contributors, we will explore how we can respond as individuals, as a team and as a whole-system across sectors, and face upcoming challenges and unknowns in our leadership practices.

Join our contributors to hear their stories and experiences

  1. Thomas Lamont – Senior Lecturer University of Dundee, Consultant and Clinical Lead Restorative Dentistry NHS Tayside, Scottish Clinical Leadership Fellow 2018-2019
  2. Louise Brownlow – Assistant Tenant Services Manager at Hillcrest Homes

With a focus on storytelling and reflections, our contributors will share how they have prepared for and coped with challenges and what the impact of responding respectfully and with compassion has meant for them and their colleagues. Collectively, we’ll explore what this means for us, in our own workplaces and in our day-to-day roles.

Questions for us to consider:
