Systemic approaches to social work leadership: driving organisational change

14:00 – 15:00

Working in partnership with Somerset County Council, the Institute of Family Therapy is delivering systemic leadership training throughout children’s social care. Come and see how this partnership is making a difference for children and families throughout the country.

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 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
