Inspiring Leadership Performance Programme: Designed for Persons in Charge

Course Description

We have collaborated with the IMI to design a new leadership programme that is tailored to Persons in Charge in the nursing home sector.

The Inspiring Leadership Performance Programme will foster and enhance capabilities in areas such as leadership efficiency, effectiveness, communication and compassionate leadership, in order to enable you to lead your nursing home more effectively. You will be guided on the management competencies you need to lead staff in a complex environment, including prioritising workloads, delegating effectively and influencing others.

You will discuss the challenges and opportunities of recent times, with particular focus on the importance of developing your own wellbeing and skills such as resilience, and a stronger understanding of how you can lead in these constantly changing times. There will also be a core focus on recruitment and retention of key talent and ensuring that your own professional development is prioritised.

The programme consists of 8 days over 6 months, from November 2021 to May 2022. LHP Skillnet members pay €2995, which represents fantastic value for money - the RRP is €6000.

Course Aim


This programme gives you the leadership and management competencies required in the unique environment in which you operate – balancing the resources available to ensure patient safety.


Each participant will be assigned to a group, where they will work together on exercises and challenges in the workshop sessions and also meet between workshops to support each other in implementing takeaways and actions from the workshop sessions. These useful learning spaces offer participants insights into teamwork, building relationships and influencing others.


Our coaching service gives participants additional individualised support. The 1-1 coaching sessions provide an invaluable opportunity to access advice on specific personal needs within the organisation’s context thus ensuring targeted support.
