A recent leadership and supervision project worked with three organisations from across the social service sector: Nether Johnstone House, Simon Community Scotland and Dundee City Council.
Each organisation formed a project team to work with us and Iriss, whose role was to facilitate discussions and explore actions with each of the partner organisations. Further support was provided by CCPS and Loretto Care.
The project supported partners to:
- increase their understanding of how the leadership logic model could be used to support leadership activity and evaluation
- improve their understanding of the enablers and barriers to good leadership
- improve their understanding about the relationship between leadership and management in the context of supervision for practitioners and managers
- be clearer about the role of good management in effective leadership
- improve their understanding about supervision.
We linked partners to existing support materials available through Step into Leadership, including the leadership logic model and the Supervision Learning Resource. This work also contributed to the Leadership Strategy Implementation Plan.
The project ran from June 2017 to March 2018. During this time we held three workshops with each organisation, two shared action learning days and a final event for a wider audience.
Each of the three partner organisations has shared stories on how the project made a difference. You can listen to their stories on the Iriss website.
