Project Lift – courageous conversation

Why bother with great collaborative leadership practice?

As part of Project Lift’s ‘courageous conversation’ event series, here are fresh perspectives on some of the big questions of what it’s like to be a leader right now and what we need to be paying attention to. At this upcoming event, we’ll explore why great leadership practices matter across social care and health in Scotland.

Our speakers will provoke us, to help us all see the why and how of great collaborative leadership practice is so ‘of its time’.  They will stir our own ideas and thoughts about how we can all, regardless of role, profession or level; practice the kind of leadership that enables integrated care and outcomes that matter.

Recommendations from recent reports such as the Adult social care: independent review have highlighted just how important this is for us. And as people who work in health and social care, it’s our opportunity now to really think on how we can foster the kind of leadership practices that make the difference, where we are at, moment to moment, in our own workplaces.


Ron Culley, Chief Executive, Quarriers
Karen Reid, Chief Executive, NHS Education for Scotland

In this session, we’ll hear from our speakers as well as have space for reflection and to share our own experiences. We’ll explore questions such as:

  • Why does great leadership practice matter?
  • This has nothing to do with me!  Rethink that – why do I need to think about this myself, regardless of the role, level, or place I work?
  • What works?  The fast food or slow cooking approach?
  • What’s the power in more attention, at large – to great leadership practice?
  • Why does working across social services and health matter?
