Now we're onto Step 2) Leading
Front line engagement
Relentless Focus (esp on messaging)
On to @jasonleitch's current strategy dealing with #coronavirus variants.
1) Appreciate the problem
2) Understand people's psychology
3) Understand the data
4) What is your theory to guide action?
Iterative testing to refine 4).
The "applause" button is getting a hammering now. Our chair @IanLeistikow appreciates that @jasonleitch expressed his feelings of self-doubt.
Jason points out that nobody has all the knowledge. You need an infrastructure of teams that feed in to decision making.
Great question No 1) How much of this will stay in place after the #pandemic?
A) Technically, some of it will say (work patterns etc)
Culturally, @jasonleitch hopes the #kindness remains, and the top-down influence of the four clinical leads of the UK.
Great Question No 2) Can you say more about vaccine hesitancy amongst some groups?
A) It's multifactorial. Fundamentally, you have to surround them with correct, accessible information. Use trusted voices. Also, don't engage with fake news.
Great Question No 3) How have you looked after the #wellbeing of you and your team?
Family, friends, and a great set of professionals.
Find your recipe to look after yourself: for Jason it's eat well, sleep well and run 5k/day.
GQ 3) What learning prepared you for the #pandemic ?
Knowing what skills I do (and don't) have
Operating as a dentist
Relying on others' expertise
That's it from this #Quality2021 session on #leadership
Many thanks to Jason, Ian and the audience.
