MAKING IDEAS STICK

Despite the misery the Covid-19 has wrought on all of us, an unexpected benefit of the pandemic has been that innovations and ideas have been quickly conceived, developed and implemented in weeks, rather than the years they would usually take. Our challenge now is not just to keep the ideas coming…but to make them stick. How do we do that? How can we make sure those light-bulb moments aren’t lost forever? How do we take those little moments of inspiration and turn them into something tangible?

This book contains five thoughts to help make ideas stick.

IHM ANALYSIS OF THE PEOPLE PLAN

The People Plan draws on experiences from Covid2020 and focuses on the innovations and changes that resulted from the challenges faced.  It also utilises the manner in which staff and managers stepped up their engagement and played their part in ‘getting things done’

Here, at the IHM we have analysed the People Plan and how it touches on some of the big problems facing the NHS and the solutions and ideas it offers.

BEREAVEMENT MANAGEMENT IN A TIME OF CRISIS

Unfortunately we find ourselves in challenging times.  Patients diagnosed with Covid19 are quarantined, and  many will be unable to receive visits from their family and friends.  This places enormous emotional strain on not only the patients, many of whom require end of life care,  but also the staff who are caring for these patients.

This booklet does not seek to replace or supplant guidance issued by individual Trusts or NHSE, rather it seeks to support staff who are trying to offer the best end of life care in these challenging times.   You can download the booklet by clicking on the image above.

This booklet  is a companion to ‘Bereavement:  A Guide for Managers’. by the same authors.

Roy Lilley has produced this easy to read guide to help you produce a tailore CV to get the job of your dreams, or to ensure you keep your existing one.

The A – Z of Management

 I think you’re a member of the IHM because you’re curious.  I think you are curious about management and how to do it better.  Curiosity is a good thing.  I think, if you are curious, you can open doors on new possibilities.  Being curious opens your mind… and the mind is like a parachute, it works better when it’s open.

This book is a collection of advice, ideas, anecdote and fun that I have collected over the years.  It is partly tongue in cheek and partly deadly serious.  If it makes you think, it’s done its job.

I fear I have no advice for you, other than; stay curious, keep asking why, respect the people you work with and understand curiosity is at the crossroads of technology, art, science, medicine, management and human behaviour.

Create an environment where it is ok to get it wrong and OK to try again.  Hire people better than you, be visible, have a vision and share it often.

Create the time and space for good people to do great things…

Fairness at Work – A guide for Healthcare Managers by Roger Kline

This is an important book, written about a difficult subject, by a real expert. It is specially relevant at a time when workplace behaviour is, rightly, under such scrutiny.

Uniquely, it explains the law, helps employers know how to behave, managers how to manage what can be a tricky topic and shows all of us what to expect and how to make sure the system, policy and the law is working fairly, in the interest of everyone.

This is an excellent guide-book, full of experience, advice, references and practical approaches that I am sure will appeal to Boards, people managers and all of us working in organisations small and large.
