ODN Europe and NHS Leadership Academy London are hosting a day of exploration on the toxicity of working environments, with a special focus on the contemporary NHS.
While many organisations these days are notionally committed to ideas such as distributed leadership and staff empowerment, the practical experience of those who work in those spaces is oftentimes in sharp contrast to these ambitions.
A few firms have embraced the notion of becoming a “teal organisation” or to model themselves on holacratic principles. Yet even these seemingly enlightened approaches carry with them a dark side, which it would be remiss to ignore.
This event – co-sponsored and facilitated by the NHS London Leadership Academy and ODNE (OD Network Europe) – will provide a vital forum for OD practitioners to discuss the workplace as a difficult place to be. We will hear directly from NHS staff, including its very senior leaders, while – at the same time – allowing for voices in the room space and time to explore the collective lived experience. As OD practitioners, we will also challenge ourselves to reflect on the responsibility that we might carry regarding the workplace as a hostile environment – with the aim of investigating that impact and finding ways of practice that throw workplace toxicity into sharp relief.
The event will run on 16 October 2019 at a venue in Central London. It will start at 0930 for 1000 and finish no later than 1600. There will be 30 places allocated both to NHS LLA and to ODN Europe.
