500 plus NSW Health Managers take on an intensive skills uplift in October 2021

Publish date:

Throughout October 2021 over 500 NSW Health managers will participate virtually in the next cohort of HETI's People Management Skills Program (PMSP).

PMSP has been redeveloped with a focus on identifying and developing the humanistic skills and qualities in people managers, essential for collaborative leadership and management. Placing people at the heart of all our interactions has been essential as we all work through the ongoing challenges of a pandemic.

100% of participants had improved communication skills to lead empathetically, build trust and enhance culture and team. (Cohort May 2021)

I think the whole course made me reflect on me as a person – my strengths and weaknesses as a manager. These insights will make me a better manager [and] more mindful about what I do and how I do things in my work area."

Participants from across NSW explore concepts to form meaningful connections and create safe, healthy working environments, contributing to a better human experience and improved patient outcomes.

Six modules offer a deep dive into subjects to strengthen behavioural change, with learning activities promoting critical thinking, problem solving, practice development and reflection.

What helped me to align myself better, was the opportunity to collaborate with other people managers to review and discuss the core content of the workshop considering our personal management experiences."
