SYSTEMIC APPROACHES TO SOCIAL WORK LEADERSHIP: DRIVING ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE

13.45-14.45

Working in partnership with Somerset County Council (SCC) the Institute of Family Therapy (IFT) is delivering systemic leadership training throughout children’s social care. The IFT has been on the improvement journey with SCC – come and see how this partnership is making a difference for children and families throughout the county.

A systemic approach is based on the notion that the success of the whole community depends on the success of its individual members; while the success of each member depends on the success of the community as a whole. This presentation will share practical examples that can be speedily transformed into action. Attend the session to:

  • Learn about a systemic process of change
  • Understand the key principle that the whole (agency) is greater than the sum of its parts (individual services)
  • Learn about the power of developing a shared vision in order to foster coherence and coordination in the service
