Free Accelerate Leadership Programme for GPs, Dentists, Optometrists and Pharmacists from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds

Publication date: March 2022

Colleagues who experience racism and discrimination are often absent from senior roles and management structures within the NHS. We want to make a small step towards addressing this by offering a programme designed to support you in accelerating your career and personal development as part of the Humberside LMCs’ Wellbeing Strategy, funded by NHSEI. 

The programme is available to colleagues from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds to support personal and professional development, taking into account the additional barriers you may face due to ethnicity, race and discrimination.   

This is a unique opportunity to help you carve out your own career path, become more empowered in pursuing your aspirations and be supported in embracing your background as a positive tool for progression.

The programme will be delivered by a team of executive coaches from diverse backgrounds, working as a partnership between The Hobbs Consultancy and the Good Business Initiative arm of Executive Coaching Company.

During the programme you should expect to:

  • Examine the myths and realities of confidence and how to use neuroscience and self-belief to build confidence levels.
  • Examine common derailers for your talent and learn practical tools to maximise energy, resilience and impact.
  • Use Strengths theory to bring more of your natural, rather than learned, strengths to your career, leveraging both performance levels and resilience.
  • Use a combination of diagnostics, feedback and discussion to increase self-awareness.

The programme comprises three full-day modules and three follow up one-to-one coaching sessions.

The modules will be delivered virtually over 3 separate days on the following dates:

Day 1: Tuesday, 10th May

Day 2: Tuesday, 17th May

Day 3: Wednesday 25th May

The 1:1 coaching sessions following on from the programme will support you in deepening the learning and forwarding the action.
