Shadow Executive completes first successful year

News: Shadow Executive 2021

Oxleas' Shadow Executive 2021 has been a great success with the 12 members of staff taking part in it finding it an extremely positive experience. 

It was set up to bring a fresh perspective to Executive Team discussions at Oxleas and provide colleagues with an innovative opportunity for personal development. 

Everyone who took part enjoyed the experience and found that it broadened their knowledge and developed their skills and confidence. Members found it really empowering to see how their feedback was taken forward and acted upon by the Executive Team. "This has been the best experience in my working life," said one participant. 

The idea is part of our work to take forward one of the priorities of our Strategy 2021- 24 Making Oxleas a Great Place to Work. To learn more about the experiences of this year's cohort, watch our film and download our case study.

We have now opened the programme for colleagues to apply to join the Shadow Executive 2022. Applications are welcome from colleagues across Oxleas particularly those who are new to Oxleas or the NHS. 

"We are really looking forward to working with next year's Shadow Executive team following the success of this year's group," said Ify Okocha, Interim Chief Executive. "It has been a pleasure to get to know colleagues working in different areas and to hear their perspective. It has made us think and review how we approach issues within the Executive team."
