Description: Introduction to LEAN Thinking: There is a popular misconception that LEAN is appropriate only for manufacturing and production-oriented enterprises. This is a false belief that it doesn’t have a natural home in service industries or, particularly, in healthcare settings. LEAN, when properly explained and introduced into any organisation, enables a way of thinking and acting that is focused on maximising value to the ultimate end user (in the case of healthcare, the patient) whilst minimising wasteful practices in doing so. A lean organisation understands that end-user value proposition and focuses its key processes to continuously improve it. Lean is about establishing what is valuable for the patient and then optimising all value creating processes by cutting out waste and smoothing out unevenness in processes so that the service flows smoothly. All achieved through some very simple and very effective changes to the way things are done within the environment in which staff and patients interact. To busy Doctors this can equate to saved time.

The human impact of being a Consultant in the NHS and managing emotions in the workplace: The challenge of leadership is to be able to hold the tensions of duality – the paradoxes and absurdities – without being paralysed by them. When you become a leader, you don’t stop feeling fear and shame, in fact the challenge is to be able to handle the discomfort, the uncertainty, to be able to guide and support your teams and make decisions, despite all you are feeling inside. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of managing your internal landscape and protecting yourself from trauma. How do you show up courageously and lead in the midst of this turmoil?
